State police are reviewing six unsolved homicide or missing-person cases to determine if a Turner farmhand accused of strangling two women last weekend is linked to the crimes, authorities said Thursday.

Lloyd Frank Millett, 35, worked as a logger for a 23-year-old Fayette woman, Judith Flagg, who was stabbed to death on Jan. 6, 1983, said Lt. Michael Harriman of the Maine State Police.

Millett lived near Flagg when she was killed and was a friend of the woman and her husband, Theodore, Harriman said.

Theodore Flagg found his wife’s body in the kitchen of their rural home. Their 13-month-old son, Chad, was huddling next to her bloody body.

Harriman said detectives also are looking at whether there is a link between Millett and the 1986 abduction of Kimberly Ann Moreau of Jay.

Court records show that Millett lived on the same street as Moreau, 17, who was abducted on May 10, 1986. Police have said they suspect foul play, and Moreau has not been seen since.

Moreau was last seen leaving her parents’ home at 41A Jewell St. with an unknown person in a late-model white Pontiac Trans Am. Millett lived in an apartment at 26 Jewell St., according to records at South Paris District Court.

Harriman also said detectives are re-examining the fatal stabbing of Crystal Perry, 30, in her Bridgton home on May 12, 1994, and the killing of Alex James, 58, of Brewer this summer.

Perry’s body was found by her young daughter shortly after the killing. James’ raped, beaten and stabbed body was discovered June 17 in an industrial park in Hampden.

Harriman would not identify the victims or details of the other two cases that investigators are examining for possible links to Millett.

He said police are looking at the six cases because they may have “tangible connections” to Millett.

Harriman defined tangible connections as similarities between the unsolved crimes and the weekend strangulations, or the possibility that Millett was personally connected to the victims.

He stressed that investigators have not tied Millett to any of the unsolved killings or to the abduction of Moreau. “We don’t have any positive correlations, but we want to be thorough, ” he said.

Millett turned himself in to police Monday night after the bodies of two women were discovered, one in his house trailer and the other in a field near a Lewiston hotel.

Police say Millett admitted to the killings. He was charged with two counts of murder and is being held without bail at the Androscoggin County Jail.

Killed were Terrie M. Lizotte, 39, a mother of two from Canton, and Rachelle Anne Williams, 33, a mother of four from Gorham, N.H.

Millett met Lizotte at a bar in Turner, went to his home with her, and strangled her with a belt or a strap, authorities have said.

Williams, a Pizza Hut manager attending a conference, was abducted from a hotel corridor and taken out a side door, police said.

Authorities are trying to determine if the women were sexually assaulted.

Harriman said authorities have forwarded details about the killings to the FBI for help in determining if any other unsolved homicides have similarities.

Portland Police Chief Michael Chitwood said his detectives do not believe that Millett is connected to the strangulation deaths of two women in the city during the 1980s.

Mary Ann Deragon, 31, of Windham, was found behind the Riverton Community School on Sept. 12, 1985. The body of Mary Mabel Kelly, 33, was found on April 26, 1986, in her one-room apartment at the Lafayette Town House.

Chitwood said detectives had suspects in each case who they believe are the killers, but never developed enough information for their arrests.
