Georgeanne Jackson, 73, was found dead in her Kennebec Road home in Hampden, and her husband, 73-year-old David Jackson, was found unresponsive, according to Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland.
David Jackson was transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. Police continue to monitor his condition and investigate the circumstances of Georgeanne Jackson’s death.
Hampden police checked on the couple after receiving a request from a relative.
Police secured the home on Tuesday morning and Georgeanne Jackson’s body was transported to the Maine medical examiner’s office in Augusta, where an autopsy will be conducted Wednesday.
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.
According to Waldo County court filings, David Jackson filed for divorce from Georgeanne Jackson in 2009. The 1292 Kennebec Road home that the two were found in on Tuesday was awarded to her as part of the divorce, according to court documents.
Georgeanne Jackson was listed as the sole owner of the home, according to the Penobscot County Registry of Deeds.
