Dec. 23, 2013
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Police say the person found dead in a Bangor supermarket parking lot over the weekend appears to have been struck by a vehicle elsewhere in the city and dragged.
Officers found the victim near the entrance to a Hannaford store at about 8 p.m. Saturday.
The person's name has not been made public.
Police said Sunday that it appears the victim was struck on Vermont Avenue about a half mile away, became trapped under the vehicle and was dragged.
Detective David Bushey tells WABI-TV (http://bit.ly/JYvXoY ) the driver was unaware that someone was trapped under the car until they reached Hannaford.
The death remains under investigation but no charges are expected.
