AMITY — The 1989 Ford F-150 pickup sought in connection with Wednesday’s triple homicide in Amity was found on a private tote road Saturday morning 15 miles south in Weston.

The truck, which was destroyed by fire, was found around 11:30 a.m. by the owner of the property, according to a news release from the Maine Department of Public Safety.

State Police detectives and investigators from the state Fire Marshal’s Office were at the site Saturday gathering evidence. Officials planned to move the truck to the State Police Crime Lab in Augusta on Saturday night.

Police were hunting for the driver, whom they described as “a person of interest” who should be considered dangerous.

Amity residents Jeffrey Ryan, 55, his son Jesse Ryan, 10, and Jason Dehahn, 30, were found dead Wednesday night, state police Lt. Gary Wright said. The truck was registered to Jeffrey Ryan.

Ryan and his son lived at the residence, according to police, and Dehahn was a friend who did not reside there.

Police would not identify the person who discovered the bodies. However, a man who identified himself as Jason Dehahn’s brother said in a telephone interview that he and his father found the 10-year-old’s body in a back room when they went to Ryan’s home in search of Dehahn. They returned home and called police, who later found the other bodies, he said.

“We haven’t a clue” as to the perpetrator, he said. “We can’t imagine anybody would do anything like that.”
