The second body found in the home has not been identified, but officials said the deceased person was a man in his mid-70s.

Woonsocket Police Chief Thomas Oates said the neighbor who called in about the suspicious smell also said he hadn’t seen the mayor in a couple of weeks, as reported by The Providence Journal.

Neighbor Freddie Herrera, who lives next home to Menard’s home, also said he saw “a lot of flies around the windows,” which prompted him to call the police, according to WLNE-TV.

It’s not clear whether Menard was married or had a partner at the time of her death, but Chief Oates said she lived with a man.

The cause of death for both Menard and the unidentified man are still pending, according to the state medical examiner’s office.

It’s unclear how long the bodies, found in separate rooms, were in the home before being found.

The deaths are being investigated, but Chief Oates said there is no sign of foul play.

“The house was secure, and there was no sign of any struggle,” Oates told the Boston Globe.

“The two residents both have a history of pretty significant medical issues.”

Menard, a Democrat, was the first woman elected as mayor of Woonsocket, and only the second in the entire state.

She became mayor in 1995 and left office in 2009, which makes her the longest-serving mayor in the town’s history.

The town is about 20 miles northwest of Providence and has about 40,000 residents.
