The Orono Police Department says officers responded to a home on Bayview Place twice Monday evening for welfare checks. When they returned the second time, they found the bodies of a 5-year-old boy and a 47-year-old woman.

Both victims were taken away by the medical examiner overnight.

Authorities said there is no risk to the public and they are not looking for any suspects in connection with the incident.
