STETSON, Maine — Marc Karun had lived in Stetson for six years before police arrested him Wednesday in connection with the murder and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl in Norwalk, Connecticut, nearly 33 years ago.
During his time in the small town of 1,200 outside Bangor, Karun developed a reputation for odd behavior, he had a vacant stare that made some uneasy and he regularly attended meetings of the town’s select board, residents and officials said Thursday, the day news broke of his arrest in the 1986 sexual assault and strangling death of Kathleen Flynn.
“I’m not surprised,” Selectman Millard Butler said of Karun’s arrest. “He always acted kind of weird anyway.”
