Police say the deceased are husband and wife. Police identified the wife as 61-year-old Ann Cashman and the husband as Wayne Cashman, 63, Monday afternoon.

A newspaper carrier went to deliver the newspaper at around 5:15 Monday morning where a note was found on the door. The note said to call 911 because there was a murder-suicide.

According to police, they found a dead woman with a gunshot wound. Another note was found stating that they should go to a location on the waterfront. When they got to the waterfront, police say, they found a man dead next to a car.

The man's autopsy will likely take place on Monday. The woman's on Tuesday.
