Caswell, Maine Death

CASWELL, MAINE - On April 15, 2014, at approximately 9:20 PM, a report was received that Paul Oliver (age 74) of Caswell was missing after attempting to move his truck through a flooded portion of Oliver Road in Caswell. Oliver had moved his truck across the flooded dirt roadway and attempted to walk back across the flooded road to his residence.

The water was completely covering the roadway and flowing with considerable force. Oliver apparently stepped into the opening of a large culvert that was covered by water and was swept downstream. Oliver’s body was located by wardens at approximately 5:35 this morning approximately 20 yards downstream of the road. Game wardens were assisted by members of Limestone Fire Department.
