Maine officials have released the identity of a Lamoine man who was murdered in his home.

Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta has identified the man whose body was found at a home on Shore Road in Lamoine. A friend discovered 71-year-old Neil Salisbury's body when they went by to check on him just after 10:00 Monday morning. Officials say Salisbury was living in the home. So far, police have not released the man's cause of death.

The BDN reports Salisbury was apparently an unofficial candidate for the office of Hancock County Sheriff. The campaign did not seem to be very widespread.

This case remains under investigation by the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit. They ask that anyone who lives in or near the area of Shore Road and believes they may have information about this case reach out to them at 207-973-3700.

Detectives say they do not believe there is any ongoing threat to the public.
