HEBRON, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine say a former university chaplain who was estranged from his family broke into their home and killed his adult daughter, then himself.

A neighbor discovered the bodies of 56-year-old Daniel Randall and 27-year-old Claire Randall on Thursday in Hebron. Police say Daniel Randall shot and killed Claire Randall in the bathroom. They believe he then killed himself.

Police say Daniel Randall had broken into the house through a garage door. They say he had just completed substance abuse treatment.

From 2009 to 2012, Roger Williams University paid Daniel Randall as a vendor to be an affiliated chaplain.

WJAR-TV reports Randall was also a former pastor at First Congregational Church in Bristol, Rhode Island.
