Augusta Homicide 

52 year old Michael Roderick was found dead at his home Thursday night.

Police have ruled his death a homicide and are asking for help.

Michael Roderick is described as a man who kept to himself.

He lived alone at his home off of Eastern Avenue in Augusta.

A friend found Roderick’s body at about 7:00 Thursday night.

State and Augusta police have been looking for evidence in and around his house.

An autopsy was performed Friday morning and the cause of death has been determined but police are not releasing those details.

We have been told that he died sometime during the day.

Authorities are hoping someone who may have been in the area can help break open this case. Traffic was backed up in front of Roderick’s driveway Friday because of construction and police would like to know if anyone saw anyone go into or leave Roderick’s home.
