Former OOB Councilor and Woman Found Dead
A woman and a former City Councilor have been found dead in an Old Orchard Beach Home.
According to the Portland Press Herald, the bodies of 44-year-old Dana Furtado and an acquaintance, 21-year-old Amber Morrow of Saco, were found in a Cascade Road home on Monday evening. Friends and family had gone to the house to check on their welfare when they hadn't been able to reach them for a day or two.
Autopsies are scheduled to determine cause of death. Police say their deaths do not appear suspicious, but the circumstances are under investigation. OOB Police Captain David Hemingway said that police have ruled out carbon monoxide poisoning.
Furtado was one of six of the town's seven councilors who were recalled by Old Orchard Beach voters in 2013. Several months of discord prompted voters to oust all but one of their city representatives.
