BANGOR, Maine — Police are investigating reports of two dead bodies that were received within two hours on Thursday afternoon.

The first one was reported about 3:45 p.m. at an apartment near downtown, but the age and gender of the person were not released.

“The detectives have it,” Bangor police Sgt. Garry Higgins said Friday morning. “Obviously, it’s still under investigation.”

No details at all were released about the dead body reported at about 5:30 p.m., the sergeant said, referring all calls to detectives. The fact that detectives are handling the cases does not necessarily mean that either death is suspicious, Higgins stressed.

Sgt. Rob Angelo said Friday night that detectives were continuing to investigate the cases and that he wasn’t aware of any new details.
