Bangor police are investigating what may be the beating death of a homeless man. Police were called to a makeshift campsite off I-95 and HammondSt. Sunday afternoon to respond to a report of an assault. When they arrived in the area, known as ‘The Pines’, they found a man believed to be in his 60′s, dead. The man’s identity is pending. His body is at the medical examiner’s office in Augusta for an autopsy to determine how he died. Right now police consider the death suspicious as they try to figure out if someone killed the man.
Police say they’ll also be looking into whether Sunday’s death is connected to the unsolved murder of another homeless man in Bangor. Trevor Sprague’s body was found burning underneath a Bridge in bangor, more than two years ago.
