State Police are investigating the death of a Richmond man, who was found dead inside his downtown home Friday afternoon.  The death of 48 year old Andrew Sherman of 7 Kimball St is being termed suspicious.  Sherman's body was found by a friend about 5 PM who had gone to check on him, after Kimball had not been seen or heard from in a few days. An autopsy was performed Saturday at the State Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta, but no details are being released at this time.

A team of detectives and evidence technicians, assisted by Richmond Police, have been at the home since Friday night . Detectives are working out of the Richmond Fire Department.  Police are asking anyone who has either seen or heard from Sherman in the past week to contact them, either by dropping by the fire department, or calling State Police in Augusta at 207-624-7076, extension 9.

Sherman lived alone in the house and had not worked in recent years because of injuries from a car crash.
