Updated 5 years ago

A parking lot that was the scene of a police investigation in Lincoln last week, was on Wednesday the site of a memorial service.About a dozen people gathered to honor the memory of Brian Steven Isdell. Police found the 55-year-old truck driver from Tennessee near death in this lot on Main Street last Thursday. While an autopsy says Isdell died of a heart attack, police say he was involved in a fight with two local teens a few minutes earlier.Folks in Lincoln said Wednesday they felt the need to gather at the site as a show of respect while Isdell’s funeral was being held in Tennessee.”It’s very tragic what has happened. And we hope that his family will see this and know that we really care about what happened to him,” says Gina Ryder, of Lincoln.”As a community, or even as a few individuals, to share that burden, to lift that grief off that family is just a wonderful show of compassion,” says Vicki Garnett, of Lincoln.Lincoln police say they will be in contact with the Penobscot County District Attorney’s office this week to determine what, if any, further action should be taken with regard to the teens involved in the fight.
