BANGOR, Maine — The three people found dead Monday in a house in Alton were identified Tuesday morning by the Maine State Police as Scott J. Reed, 43, his wife, Danielle Reed, 39, of Alton and Daniel Young, 41, of Bradley.

Officers found the bodies inside the home at 326 Alton Tannery Road, according to Lt. Christopher Coleman of the Maine State Police.

Police were dispatched to the house after receiving a call at 7:25 p.m. from a woman who had entered the residence and found one of the deceased men. After police responded and searched the home, they found the bodies of another man and a woman.

State police called in the Major Crimes Unit and gathered evidence at the property into the early morning hours and will continue through Tuesday.

“The three bodies at some point will make their way to Augusta, where autopsies [will] be done and that will also help us piece together what happened,” Coleman said early Tuesday morning.

Coleman would not say what police believe to be the cause of death, stating that the medical examiner would determine the cause. He said nothing that happened at the scene should prompt residents to take greater than normal safety precautions.

Police briefly shut down Tannery Road from Route 43 to Route 16. The road has since reopened to traffic. Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Old Town police initially responded to the report as well as state police.
