On Oct. 31, a kayaker called police to report they had discovered human remains along the banks of the Presumpscot near the intersection of East Bridge Street and Route 302. The remains were submerged because of torrential rain the previous night, police said. Under normal circumstances, that area of the riverbank is dry and accessible by foot.

Westbrook police and the fire department went to the area in a boat and were able to recover some of the remains. Investigators from Westbrook police and Maine State Police returned to the scene on Nov. 2 to recover the rest of the remains and process the scene.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner identified the remains as Tucker on Thursday.
