Maine Public Safety Commissioner Michael Sauschuck speaks alongside Maine Governor Janet Mills during a press conference after Lewiston mass shooting suspect Robert Card was arrested found dead in Maine on October 27, 2023.
The suspect's body was found around 7:45 p.m., said Michael Sauschuck, head of Maine Public Safety at an evening news conference, without confirming the exact location.
However, he said the body was found near the river in Lisbon Falls, about 10 miles from Lewiston, where Wednesday night's shooting took place.
Police found Card's body at a recycling facility where he recently worked, a law enforcement official told the AP. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
