Maine authorities are investigating the death of an elderly man who was found floating in a lake in Raymond. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department says 87-year-old William Prouty of New Hartford, Conn., was found by his wife around 9:25 a.m. Thursday. The family owns a seasonal home on a small island in the lake. Officials say Prouty left the island to meet a maintenance worker on the mainland.
