WALDOBORO — Police say a man who fled after officers were called to investigate a domestic disturbance was discovered dead the following day in snowy woods in Waldoboro, Maine.
A police officer who wanted to question Frank Leathers tried to follow tracks left in the snow but stopped because of the heavy snowfall Saturday evening. More police and the fire chief continued the search but called it off after midnight.
Searchers assisted by a game warden found Leathers dead the following morning after the snow had stopped and skies had cleared. WLBZ-TV reports that police say the death is not suspicious.
The storm was blamed for another death in Maine. Police say a 75-year-old Passadumkeag man became disoriented in a whiteout Saturday and drove into the Penobscot River
