BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Police are seeking a 31-year-old man in the deaths of three people whose bodies were found in a burning car in Bangor, but investigators are mum on the arrest warrant.
Police in Brockton, Mass., confirmed to the Bangor Daily News that they were looking for Nicholas J. Sexton on a fugitive-from-justice warrant for a triple homicide in Maine. Sexton's hometown was unknown.
Deputy Attorney General Bill Stokes, chief of the criminal division, declined to comment Saturday on whether there was an indictment or an arrest warrant.
The burning car, which had Rhode Island license plates, was discovered early on Aug. 13 in a Bangor parking lot. Video surveillance captured someone running from the scene.
Relatives and friends said the three victims from Maine had attended a small gathering and left in a white Pontiac with Rhode Island plates before their deaths.
Authorities identified the victims as Daniel Thomas Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas Alan Tuscano, 28, of Bradford. Their deaths were ruled homicides, but the medical examiner's office was ordered not to disclose how they died.
