“My job, if you will, is a crusade to find and bring home my wife, Gerry, my wife of 42 years, my best friend of 45 years,” George Largay said in a video released by the department. “And I’m hopeful that the $15,000 award will generate additional leads for the authorities to help find Gerry.”
Geraldine Largay, 66, was last heard from on July 22, when she sent a text message to her husband. The next day, she failed to show up for a scheduled meeting with him in Wyman Township.
Investigation into death of biker continues, police say
Police continue to investigate the weekend death of an Exeter man who died after he was struck while out riding a bike in Corinth.
The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year-old Joseph Sweet was riding the three-wheeled vehicle on Route 43 on Sunday morning when he was struck by a pickup truck.
Chief Deputy Troy Morton says the driver of the truck – a 28-year-old Corinth man – apparently took his eyes off the road right before impact.
Morton told WABI-TV that neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors.
The results of the investigation will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office to determine whether any charges will be filed.
Jury acquits N.H. man accused of securities fraud
A jury has acquitted a New Hampshire businessman of taking $1.6 million from a Maine woman and her mother through investments.
Last year, the Maine Attorney General’s office charged Todd Enright of Hinsdale, N.H., with theft by deception. An indictment alleged that Enright falsely promised that he would use money from Connie Nagle and her mother, Beatrice Harris, to buy investments secured by real estate and that the investments would be risk-free.
The jury in Alfred acquitted the 46-year-old Enright on Monday; it deadlocked and did not reach a verdict on a charge of securities fraud.
