Bangor, Maine News Update: September 12, 2017

A recent college graduate accused of killing his mother, grandparents and a caregiver at a Massachusetts home is being described as a good friend and talented jazz musician who showed no signs that he was troubled. Rockport resident and Oberlin College graduate Orion Krause was ordered Monday to be sent to Bridgewater State Hospital pending a competency hearing. A longtime friend of Krause’s said he was a great student and phenomenal musician who was well-liked by everyone.

Orono Police are concerned that an annual celebration for the University of Maine has become an issue. Maine Day was originally intended to be an unofficial holiday for students to mark the end of the school year, but has become an excuse for heavy drinking. Police Chief Josh Ewing told town officials on Monday that he’s hoping to change the idea of Maine Day to be more about community service than about partying.

A Bangor elementary school will be without its principal for a couple of months while he helps with the hurricane recovery efforts in Florida. Mary Snow School principal Brian Bannen is also a Marine Science Technician with the Coast Guard and is leaving tomorrow for a 60-day deployment.
