Another Man is Discovered Dead as State Police Investigate Yesterday’s Suicide on I-95
State police continue their investigation into yesterday afternoon’s stand off on Interstate 95, and as a result they say another man is dead.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the body of 68 year old Lawrence Lewis was found inside his home at 450 Macwahoc Road, which is also Route 2. Detectives are now processing the residence for evidence. The man's body will be transported later today to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta for autopsy.
Detectives say that Lewis' death is related to the yesterday's standoff and a team of detectives have obtained a number of search warrants today to search Lewis' house in Molunkus, the U-Haul truck and a couple of other locations, including a Medway motel room.
The man who shot himself last night is identified as 59 year old Bruce King. State Police say King was originally pulled over on I-95 yesterday afternoon.
