PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Officials have identified the father and daughter who were found dead in an apartment in Pittsfield.

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless said Tuesday that 47-year-old Anthony Nazareth and 11-year-old Hannah Nazareth were found dead on Monday.

The bodies were found by police while they were conducting a well-being check. Officials have not disclosed when they believe the deaths occurred.

Authorities previously said the case was being investigated as a possible murder-suicide, but the term was not in Tuesday’s statement which said the cause of the deaths remain undetermined.

Officials said early toxicology testing indicates Anthony Nazareth may have died of a drug overdose but an autopsy for Hannah Nazareth showed no signs of trauma.

The case remains under investigation.
