Update: According to the Jupiter Police Department, the body found in the home belongs to an unidentified male who died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The man did not live in the home, and was not related to the homeowners.
Tequesta Fire Rescue responded to a shooting that was a possible suicide at Jupiter Inlet Colony home owned by singer/actress Olivia Newton-John.
Police were called around 12:15 p.m. Monday afternoon to 104 Lighthouse Drive.
Property records show the owners of the home are Newton-John and her husband, John Easterling.
Earlier this month, GossipExtra reported that Rosie O'Donnell had a contract to purchase the mansion, and that the contract was to be signed as early as this week.
Reports had the sale of the home for $5.6 million, around $500,000 less than what Newton-John was asking for. O'Donnell had sold her Star Island mansion for $16.5 million back in June.
There is no information on the identity of the body found at the home.
We'll update this story as more information becomes available.
