Investigators Continue To Work To Identify Thomaston Body
The state Medical Examiner’s Office and the Maine State Police DNA lab are still working to identify a body that was discovered in Thomaston on Wednesday, and police say that work may continue into next week.
The badly decomposed body, believed to be a man, was found Wednesday morning in a wooded area off Route 1 near Dunkin Donuts.
Earlier this week, police said it's likely the man’s body had been in that location for a number of months, and the man is not believed to have been from Knox County.
In a news release on Friday, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said evidence techs returned to the scene Thursday, but nothing new was found.
McCausland said there's nothing indicating that foul play was involved.
Once a positive identification has been made, detectives will attempt to retrace the man’s footsteps and determine why he was in Knox County.
