Man Shot To Death In Naples Identified
Maine State Police have released the name of the man whose body was discovered in a mobile home in Naples, the site of a police shootout Sunday morning that left a man suspected in a shooting in Casco dead.
Richard Dieckema, 55, was found shot to death in his mobile home on Songo School Road, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, told the Portland Press Herald.
The suspected shooter, Norman Strobel, 59, of Naples, was shot dead in a confrontation with Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies at the home early Sunday morning.
Strobel was sought in connection with a shooting Saturday night at a camp on Winifred Lane in Casco, which belongs to Strobel’s ex-girlfriend, Sandra Goulet.
According to Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce, Strobel approached the home, pounded on the door and identified himself as a Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy.
Sandra Goulet's daughter, Alyssa Goulet, 28, of Middletown, Rhode Island, and Jason Almeida, 32, also of Middletown, came to the window, and Strobel opened fire on them with a handgun, hitting Almeida four times, police said.
Almeida underwent surgery at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. The Press Herald said a nursing supervisor Sunday night provided no information on Almeida's current condition.
Alyssa Goulet was not injured in the shooting. Her mother was not in the home when it occurred.
Strobel was tracked to Dieckema's mobile home, and deputies entered the home after seeing a man who appeared to be injured through a window.
McCausland said Strobel then exchanged gunfire with deputies and was shot to death. Dieckema’s body was also located at the home.
Police said Dieckema was likely involved in the Casco shooting. The vehicle used to flee the scene was a red pickup truck, the same type of vehicle owned by Dieckema.
“One man apparently drove the vehicle, the other man did the shooting,” McCausland said. “What we don’t know at this point is if he was forced to go there or went willingly. We may never have that answer.”
