Body Discovered in Rockland Deemed Suspicious by Police 

The body of a woman was found on the Thompson Meadow Road in Rockland shortly after noon Tuesday. Police say the discovery was made by a man who was walking his dog. Officials won’t go into any detail of the description of the body or if there were any apparent signs of foul play, but Maine Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland says it may be the body of 47-year-old Katrina Windred of Friendship. “We’re going under the assumption that it may be the woman that we have been looking for for the last two or three days,” McCausland says. The body was found about two miles from the last known whereabouts of Windred. Katrina Windred was reported missing Sunday. Rockland Police, The Knox County Sheriff’s Office and State Police have been working on the missing case since then and from the start have called it suspicious. Police had been searching for Windred in the downtown Rockland area, where police say Windred was last seen. They also were looking at the local sewage treatment plant. “For the last day, one of the tanks there has been in the process of being drained in connection with this investigation. There are some circumstances we can’t get into that troubled investigators from the very beginning,” McCausland says. McCausland says Windred has a nine-year-old son and she is not married.Meanwhile, friends and relatives are being questioned by police. “The work will continue here in Rockland as we follow up a number of leads and work with the medical examiner’s office to find out why this woman died and her positive identification,” McCausland says. Police do not have anyone in custody at this point. The body has been taken to the Medical Examiner’s office in Augusta where an autopsy will be performed. We’re told those findings aren’t likely to be released until sometime Wednesday afternoon.
