A unnamed man has reportedly committed suicide at Olivia Newton-John’s Florida home, shooting himself in the head.
Officers arrived at John’s house at 12.15pm on Monday, and Tequesta Fire Rescue later confirmed that when they arrived they found a man’s body at the scene of the crime.
Officials have since informed WPTV that the 64-year-old actress and her husband, John Easterling, a 61-year-old businessman, weren’t in the building at the time as they were out of town. Contractors were apparently carrying out repairs on the house, which is worth in excess of $5.6 million and is located at 104 Lighthouse Drive.
Police have only released minor details about the call, and they haven’t revealed the identity of the man. It is believed that he shot himself in the head.
GossipExtra.com has reported that Easterling has refused to answer his phone to respond to questions regarding the incident. Easterling sells and collects rare medicinal herbs from various exotic locations in the globe, but mainly in the Amazon area of South America.
Rosie O’Donnell is set to move into the home in the near future, and it is believed that she was going to sign the papers for the abode later this week after a further round of inspections.
The comedian recently sold her own Miami mansion for around $16.5 million in June, and it is believed that she bough Newton-John’s home for $5.6 million, which is what it was on sale for.
The house is located in the Jupiter Inlet Colony in Palm Beach, which is a coastal community that has around 360 residents and 240 homes.
The Grease actress has lived in the four-bedroom, four-bathroom complex, which consists of around 0.35 acres and overlooks the water, since 2005, and it is believed that the contractors had been spotted on the property as they look to prepare it for O’Donnell’s move.
