A Florida home owned by singer Olivia Newton-John and her husband was the scene of a grisly discovery on Monday.

Police found the dead body of an as-yet-unidentified male inside the Jupiter, Fla., home shortly after noon, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Authorities believe the man killed himself with a gun.

According to the Palm Beach Post, contractors had been performing work on the house and one of the contractors was seen crying following the discovery of the body.

Jupiter Police Department spokesman Sgt. Scott Pascarella says that the deceased male is not related to the homeowners and does not live at the residence.

Newton-John, 64, and her husband, 61-year-old herb company founder John Easterling, are currently out of town.

Although the death appears to be a suicide, police are still investigating the case.
