Hampden police and state police outside a Kennebec Road home, investigating the death of an elderly woman

Maine State Police and Hampden police on Tuesday were investigating the death of an elderly woman at her home on Kennebec Road in Hampden, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The woman’s husband was found unresponsive and taken by ambulance to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, McCausland said.

No names were released.

The home is located at 1292 Kennebec Road, which is near the intersection with Route 69.

Hampden police and state troopers were outside the Kennebec Road home late Tuesday morning. The driveway entrance to the home was blocked by traffic cones as a police car remained parked outside the house, and a state trooper approached neighboring houses as part of the investigation.

Hampden police did not share any information about how they found out about the woman’s death or how police came to check on the house.
