Police Seek "Person Of Interest" In Shootings

Article from WLBZ-2 Newscenter, Sunday, April 16, 2006

Two deadly shootings Sunday morning prompted Maine state police to issue an alert for a 19-year-old Canadian man described as "a person of interest."

After two men were shot to death at their homes in Milo and Corinth, towns northwest of Bangor, state police said Stephen A. Marshall was being sought for questioning.

Authorities said Marshall has family in Houlton but that his most recent address was Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

The shooting victims were identified as 57-year-old Joseph Gray of West Main Street in Milo and 24-year-old William Elliott of Main Street in Corinth.

State police said both men were registered sex offenders and that as a precaution the Maine Sex Offender Registry, which is maintained by the state police and contains the photos, names and addresses of more than 22-hundred Maine registered sex offenders, had been taken off-line.

Earlier, police throughout the state were notified to be on the lookout for a small white pickup truck with a lone man inside who was seen leaving the shooting scene in Corinth at about 8:15 a.m., about five hours after the first shooting in Milo was reported.

The truck was found near the Sawyer ice arena on 13th Street in Bangor. State police said there was no sign of the driver.

Marshall is described as 5-foot-10 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
