WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - An elderly woman and her caregiver are found dead Tuesday in a West Palm Beach house in what, authorities believe, to be a tragic circumstance.

West Palm Beach Police officers found Sophie Meglino, 83, and Carmine Montanaro, who was in his 50s, dead in the home at 844 Hampton Road shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday. Montanaro had been taking care of Meglino who needed assistance to get out of bed.

Foul play is not suspected in their deaths West Palm Beach police spokesman Chase Scott said.

Police performed a welfare check after receiving a call from someone asking them to check on the home. It was uncertain when either may have died, and the causes of both deaths are under investigation by the medical examiner's office.
