Medical examiner: Man found dead on Bailey Island drowned

The Associated Press

BAILEY ISLAND — The state medical examiner has ruled that the man found dead last week on Bailey Island drowned.

The body of 28-year-old Ryan Johnson of Harpswell was found on the shore by a fisherman last Thursday morning.

Capt. Craig Smith of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says there were no signs of trauma to the body and no sign of foul play.

Officials say Johnson was last seen at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday by his mother, with whom he lived.

Police tell The Times Record that they are trying to piece together what happened between when Johnson was last seen and when his body was found.
