“This morning at around 8:30 a.m. we responded to 14 Mare Terrace for a report of a deceased male party located outside the residence,” Detective Lt. John Cahoon stated in an e-mail sent out around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. “The deceased party was a 65-year-old male. The cause of death was not immediately apparent.

State Police were also on the scene to assist with the investigation, he said.
