Authorities in Massachusetts say a man and his 11-year-old daughter have been found dead in what they believe may be a murder-suicide.

The Berkshire district attorney's office says the bodies were found Monday afternoon in Pittsfield while police were conducting a well-being check.

The victims' names have not been released. Officials say they are seeking information from family and friends.

The Berkshire Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1Igutzw) that Berkshire County and Pittsfield authorities were on the scene, along with two members from the state medical examiner's office.

It's not yet clear how the man and girl died.
