KINGSTON – Members of the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office report investigating the death of two Kerhonkson residents.

On Jul. 7, 2017, about 3:40 p.m., the sheriff’s office was contacted by the employer of one of the decedents and requested police conduct a welfare check on him, as he had not called or shown up for work, according to police.

Deputies went to 40 Sage’s Loop Road in the Town of Rochester and located Juan C. Ovsak, 70 and Maritza E. Ovsak, 54, deceased in the residence.

Each appeared to have suffered one fatal gunshot wound, according to authorities.

Preliminary investigation, said police, suggests no other people were involved in this incident.

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact this agency at 845-338-3640.

This agency was assisted by the New York State Police at Ellenville and Forensic Investigation Unit.
