ANSON, Maine — The shooting death of a man found inside his pickup truck Saturday afternoon is being termed “suspicious.”

The body of 60-year-old Everett Cameron was found about 4 p.m. in his truck, parked along Town Farm Road in Anson, near his house, according to a press release from Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

There is no indication that the death was a suicide, McCausland said Sunday morning.

“We’ll wait to hear from the autopsy results,” he said.

The autopsy was being conducted Sunday at the state medical examiner’s office in Augusta.

Detectives, Maine game wardens and Somerset County deputies went to the shooting scene and were there most of the night. Detectives were at the scene Sunday morning.

They were interviewing family members and nearby residents, McCausland said.

Cameron’s truck was towed to the state police crime lab in Augusta where it will be examined.

The Town Farm Road is located off Route 234 in Anson.
