ALTON — Maine state police say autopsy results are now expected Saturday in the deaths of a husband and wife and his friend inside the couple’s rural home.

Spokesman Steve McCausland said he initially expected the results late Wednesday afternoon, but now expects them Saturday, in the deaths of 43-year-old Scott Reed; his wife, 39-year-old Danielle Folsom Reed; and Daniel Young, 41, of Bradley. The bodies were found Monday evening inside the Reeds’ home in Alton, a town of about 800 people north of Old Town.

Police have not said how the three were killed or offered an explanation for their deaths.

McCausland confirmed that the Reeds were estranged and said their separation likely had something to do with their deaths.
