Elderly Couple Dead in Chapman

| March 7, 2013


State Police are investigating the deaths of an elderly couple found in their home this morning in Chapman.  Dead are 81 year old Marcus Sykora and his wife, 77 year old Sheila Sykora. The two had recently moved to Chapman from Missouri to stay with their daughter at her home on the Chapman Road.  The 911 call was received from the home about 11:20 a.m. and when the first responders from the Aroostook Sheriff’s Office and the Maine Warden Service arrived at the house, the man was dead in the basement and his wife was seriously injured.  She was rushed by ambulance to the Presque Isle hospital where she died a short time after arrival. The bodies will be transported tonight to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta for autopsy and examination on Friday.  Detectives say their initial findings do not suspect anyone outside the home is involved in the deaths and expect to release more information on Friday following the Medical Examiner’s conclusions. Chapman borders Presque Isle and Mapleton.
