Homeless man found dead in downtown Camden

CAMDEN, Maine — A 55-year-old Camden man, whose body was found Monday in a wooded area of the downtown, is believed to have died of natural causes.

Camden police were called at 4:30 p.m. Monday by a friend of David Conary, who was found in woods between the Rite Aid store and parking lots along Mechanic Street, Camden Police Detective Curt Andrick said Tuesday.

The friend had seen Conary sleeping in the patch of woods two days before, but when he saw him still there Monday afternoon, he checked on Conary and called police.

An autopsy is not planned, according to the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office, but the body was being examined by a local medical examiner. A cause of death was expected to be released later Tuesday.

Camden Select Board member Leonard Lookner said Tuesday that Conary was homeless and spent a lot of time in the downtown. Lookner said he would exchange greetings with Conary on many days. He said Conary often sat in an alcove next to the French & Brawn grocery store.
