The Florida home of Olivia Newton-John was the site of a suspected suicide by a contractor hired by the Australian actress and her husband, John Easterling.

The man, whose name hasn't been yet released, was a 42-year-old contractor working at the couple's house in Jupiter Inlet Colony, a town near West Palm Beach, and is suspected of shooting himself dead around midday Monday, the Palm Beach Post reports. Police said Newton-John and Easterling were out of town at the time of the incident.

Jupiter police spokesman Sgt. Scott Pascarella said the man wasn't related to Newton-John or Easterling and he wasn't living at the house. Pascarella said the man's death appears to be an apparent suicide, but police are treating it as a death investigation.

Contractors had been at the home in recent days making repairs, the Guardian reports. Newton-John is preparing the house for sale to comedian Rosie O’Donnell for $5.6 million after the renovations are complete, according to some reports.
