Suspicious Death in Amherst 

Sargeant Troy Gardner with the Maine State Police says that at about 3:00pm Monday afternoon someone called police to report a body on the side of the road, near Rt. 9.

Investigators found the body of a man off the Subdivision Road, about a mile from the Clifton-Amherst town line.

Gardner says police are working with the medical examiner’s office to identify the victim. His body is expected to be moved to Augusta Tuesday.

Police won’t speculate on how the man died, and are not releasing any more information about the case.
