Maine State Police Investigate Standish Woman’s Death
Maine State Police are investigating after finding a deceased woman in a Standish home.
Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office originally was called to 35 Dow Road in Standish, just before 10:00 Wednesday morning, to investigate an assault. When they arrived, they found 29-year-old Amanda Brown of Standish deceased. Her body has been taken to the Chief Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy to determine cause of death. The State Police Major Crimes Unit South was called in, as well as the York County Sheriff's Office, to aid in the investigation of this incident.
Police say there is no danger to the public.
State Police arrested a man in Waterboro a short time after the woman's body was discovered. WGME-TV reports the man was taken into custody by Maine State Police Tactical Teams and a police K9. In both cases, police swarmed the scene and shut down roads during the investigations.
