Body of CT Man Found in Baxter State Park in Maine

Baxter State Park officials in Maine say the body of a Connecticut man found in the park has been taken to a funeral home.

The man's body was discovered on Sunday. Park officials say he was a 60-year-old man from Connecticut who was hiking the Chimney Pond Trail and was found unresponsive by hikers.

Park director Jensen Bissell says park officials are not releasing the name of the deceased, which is typical of search and rescue operations in Baxter State Park.

Bissell says park officials are also not qualified to comment on a potential cause of death. Park officials say numerous attempts to revive the man were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
