The middle-aged man found dead at Olivia Newton-John's Jupiter, Florida home on Monday committed suicide, police said.
"Subsequent to an autopsy this morning, conducted by the Palm Beach ****** Medical Examiner's Office, it was determined Tequesta resident, Christopher Pariseleti, **** as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound," the Jupiter Police Department said Tuesday in a statement to ABC News.
"This case investigation has been classified as a suicide and there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death," the statement added.
Pariseleti, 42, was found dead shortly after 12 p.m. Monday at the home of the Grease star. Newton-John, 64, and her husband, John Easterling, were not present at the time of death.
Pariseleti did not live in the Lighthouse Drive home; he was a contractor hired by Newton-John and her husband to do work on the property, a police spokesman told ABC News.
In a statement provided to ABC News Radio, Newton-John's publicist says, "Olivia and her husband John are in shock over the tragic event that occurred at their Florida home yesterday...we can confirm that the couple was not in Florida at the time and, the deceased was not a family member."
