Authorities in Franklin County spent the better part of Thursday investigating a pair of deaths after two bodies were found at a kennel in Franklin County.

Shannon Moss, spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety, says the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit was called in after a 911 call led to the discovery of two deceased women at the Pawsitive Dog Kennel at 274 Red Schoolhouse Road in Farmington.

"Farmington Police Officers and Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies worked throughout the evening collecting evidence and conducting interviews...The deceased have been identified as 76-year-old Jean Robinson of Farmington and 53-year-old Allison Cumming of Farmington. Robinson and Cumming were mother and daughter and lived on the property in a separate building."

Moss says the bodies of the women were taken to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta where autopsies were performed but they are not releasing the cause or manner of the deaths at this time. She says there is no known immediate threat to the public.
