    Authorities Investigate Burned Bodies in Bangor

    Two bodies were found buring inside a delivery truck in Bangor, Maine.

    (Published Thursday, March 29, 2018)

    A witness says a man charged with murder argued with one of the two victims before their deaths in the back of a burning delivery truck in Bangor, Maine.

    Harry Seavey, of Bangor, testified Wednesday at the trial of John De St. Croix that he joined the group, but decided to leave because of the drinking and arguing.

    Authorities say De St. Croix called 911 and confessed to setting the fire last year.

    The fire was so hot that no one was able to rescue 43-year-old Michael Bridges and 36-year-old Desiree York, who could be heard pounding on the walls inside the truck.

    Deputy Medical Examiner Dr. Lisa Funte testified both died of smoke inhalation and suffered second- and third-degree burns. Investigators say the fire was started with accelerant and cardboard.
