The body of a Connecticut man was found in Baxter State Park on Sunday in an apparent unattended death, park Director Jensen Bissell said.

The name of the man was not released, but Jensen said he was approximately 60 years old. His body was found on the Chimney Pond Trail about a mile from Roaring Brook Campground, Bissell said.

The Maine Forest Service, park rangers and a local funeral home responded to the incident, which appeared to be caused by a medical issue the man suffered, Bissell said.
