BETHEL, Maine (AP) — The manager of a hostel in Bethel says a guest punched a 25-year-old Raymond man not long before the man’s parked car was hit by a freight train.
State police have not indicated a cause for the Feb. 20 death of Scott Libby, which remains under investigation. Autopsy results have not been released.
Police said damage to Libby’s car was minimal even though it was pushed 850 feet. Bethel Police Chief Alan Carr said injuries were too severe to have been caused by the impact.
Wyling Cambrium, who’s manager of the Bethel Hostel, tells the Bethel Citizen that the guest was interviewed by police and admitted hitting Libby. The manager said the guest had worked during the summer for Libby, who was a landscaper, and Libby had visited him at the hostel to collect a loan.
