    UPDATED: Two people found dead at Voluntown home

    Voluntown ― State police said they are investigating the circumstances that led to the deaths of two people at a residence on Hell Hollow Road.

    One man was found dead in the driveway of the home and a woman was found dead on a stairwell inside the home, police said.

    State police said troopers from Troop E in Montville responded to a 911 call from the residence at 11:26 a.m. Members of the state police emergency services and drone units were called in to assist, adding to a heavy police presence in the rural area. Police said the drone was used to find the woman inside the home.

    The discovery prompted an order for neighbors within a one-mile radius to shelter in place. Police have since said there is no ongoing threat to the public.

    Police have not yet identified the two people found dead or released the address of where they were found. The case is being investigated by state police major crime detectives.
