WASILLA -- A 47-year-old woman and 57-year-old man were found dead on a Wasilla property Monday evening, Alaska State Troopers said.

Troopers located the bodies of Sarah Klingener and Shawn McVey, both of Wasilla, after someone reported two people dead at a residence, according to a dispatch posted Tuesday. The address was near Bogard Road, troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said. A family member of Klingener reported the deaths.

Klingener was last known to be alive on Sunday, Peters said.

The general investigations unit has taken over the case, troopers said. The investigation into the cause and manner of death continues. The state medical examiner’s office is conducting an autopsy, Peters said.

No additional details were immediately available.
