BANGOR, Maine — A 65-year-old man was found dead in the middle of Pickering Square early Tuesday morning, according to police.

The man, whose identity Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards would not disclose, was found at 1:15 a.m.

When police arrived, the man was lying in the middle of the square, on his back and unconscious, according to Edwards. Efforts to revive the man were unsuccessful.

The case remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon.

“At this time, it appears that his death is not a homicide, but it is way too early in the investigation to say one way or another,” Edwards said shortly after noon.

Anyone who was in the area of Pickering Square early Tuesday or has more information about the case is urged to contact Bangor police at 974-7382 and ask for Detective Tim Cotton. Those who wish may use the anonymous tip line by pressing 6.
