STACYVILLE, Maine — State police released more information Wednesday about the clothing found on a body that was recovered from the Stacyville woods on Nov. 4 in the hope that the public can help them identify the man.

The badly decomposed body of the man, believed to have been in his 50s and about 5 feet 9 inches tall, was found by deer hunters in the woods off Route 11. The man weighed about 150 pounds, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.

Officials from the state medical examiner’s office said there are no signs of foul play and estimate the man may have died sometime in early September.

McCausland said Wednesday that the man was wearing a blue-and-white knit cap with the name “Chris” knit into the design in all capital letters. Police released a photo of the cap to the public.
