YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts say a 97-year-old man and an 84-year-old woman were found dead outside their homes in different towns after this week’s blizzard.

An officer found Richard MacLean Sr.’s body next to a carbon dioxide exhaust vent on his Yarmouth home on Cape Cod on Wednesday evening. MacLean’s son in Arizona had called police to check on his father.

Authorities believe MacLean died while trying to clear the vent.

Police also say Olive Dupuis was found dead next to her car outside her home in Salem on Thursday morning. Officials told The Salem News that Dupuis may have frozen to death after possibly being injured in a fall or suffering a medical condition.

The causes of the deaths are under investigation. Police don’t suspect foul play in either case.
