State Police Investigating Murder-Suicide in Central Maine
Maine State Police say the deaths of a man and woman found inside their Lebanon home Saturday afternoon are being investigated as an apparent murder-suicide.
30-year-old Allison Parker was shot to death by her estranged boyfriend, 27-year-old Thomas Doyon, who then shot himself. Police said it was a case of domestic violence.
The shootings took place inside a home on Bigelow Road, which the couple shared with the victim's parents. Detectives said the couple recently ended their relationship.
Parker had moved out and was at the home to retrieve her belongings. Police said she went to the home with a girlfriend; her parents were also in the house when they heard gunshots from an upstairs bedroom. The three fled the house and called State Police.
Troopers, assisted by the State Police tactical team, responded to the house around 3:45 pm. Members of the team entered the residence and found two bodies.
The couple had been together for about 3 years. Parker was the mother of a 7-year-old daughter. Doyon was not the father, said officials.
Autopsies will take place Sunday at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta.
