In a statement to E! News, Alicia claimed she contacted a relative who lives near her parents to check on them after not hearing back from them for several days.

“Sadly, the outcome was unimaginable. I ask for some privacy at this time to grieve and to wrap my head around this turn of events, and this surreal loss.”

While the Worcester Police Department was unable to release the victims’ identities, they did confirm to the outlet that authorities were summoned to a property and found a man and female dead.

There were no evidence of foul play, as per investigators, but the case is still being investigated, and the medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.

My deepest sympathies to actress Alicia Witt. I cannot even begin to imagine losing both parents at once.

Such horrible news. Especially during the holidays. Our hearts out with Alicia, her family and the many others who have suffered so many unnecessary losses over the last few months. #loveandsympathy

I can’t think of a more heartbreaking scenario. God be with you thru this terrible tragic time in your life.

I always really liked her. A crush when younger then just respected the works I saw. This leaves me heartbroken for her.
