ANSON, Maine — Maine state police have now classified the shooting death of a man in his pickup truck in the town of Anson as a homicide.

Law enforcement officials say an autopsy on the body of 60-year-old Everett Cameron was completed, but no details were released on Monday.

Police said Cameron went deer hunting Saturday morning and returned home early in the afternoon. His body was found around 4 p.m. in his truck, which was parked along a woods road near his home. Cameron’s truck was towed to the State Police Crime Lab in Augusta.

State police detectives are being assisted by game wardens and Somerset sheriff’s deputies. Wardens searched the scene again on Monday for evidence.
