At approximately 3:26 pm on May 8th, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from an individual reporting the discovery of skeletal remains at 196 Poland Springs Road. The call was made by a family member who was cleaning out their father’s residence who died earlier in the year.  The remains were found in an outbuilding on the property. The deceased father was identified as Douglas Scott, 82- years old.

The Office of Chief Medical Examiner begun a post-mortem examination on the remains on Sunday morning, May 9th, 2021.  Additional testing and examination is likely to take place throughout the coming weeks.

Detectives, deputies and troopers worked over the weekend investigating the circumstances surrounding this discovery.  Detectives and Deputies continue interviewing witnesses and other persons of interest at this time.  

The Maine State Police Evidence Response team crime scene technicians are processing the scene and are expected to remain on the scene throughout the day.  The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department and the Maine State Police Troop B assisted in securing the scene and identifying witnesses.  The investigation is likely to continue into the coming weeks as authorities work to identify the remains and the circumstances surrounding that discovery.  The Maine State Police do not believe that there is any threat to the public and will share more information as it becomes available.
