Police: Body Had Been At Palmyra Motel For Significant Time
Police say a body found at Lovley's Motel in Palmyra had been in the room for a significant amount of time.
On Friday, police identified the body as that of Richard Langlais, 62, formerly of Cheshire, Conn.
The Langlais' body was discovered Wednesday morning, when a Somerset County Sheriff's Deputy went to the motel to conduct a welfare check, at the request of motel staff. They told authorities that a man and a woman had been renting the room for several months, but the man hadn't been seen in quite some time. They also said that the woman had been exhibiting unusual behavior.
Officials say it was apparent, upon entering the room, that the man had been deceased for a significant amount of time. Centralmaine.com reports police are not treating it as a suspicious death, pending the outcome of an autopsy by the State Medical Examiner's Office.
A woman was seen in the front seat of a police cruiser, while the investigation was going on, but was then taken away by an ambulance.
