PERU — Police identified a local woman who was found dead in her kitchen shortly before 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. Her death is considered suspicious.

Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland said an autopsy for 57-year-old Paula Nuttall is set for Sunday.

She lived in a Main Street house with four other family members. One of them, a man, was taken to a hospital Saturday with nonlife-threatening injuries.

A team of Maine State Police detectives was collecting evidence at the home Saturday afternoon and was expected to be there into the night, McCausland said.

He said detectives didn’t believe anyone else was involved in Nuttall’s death.

Some neighbors who were asked about the incident said they heard and saw nothing unusual at that home on Saturday before police arrived.

The story will be updated.
