Authorities are looking into the death of a Hancock County man this week after his body was discovered at his home on Shore Road in Lamoine.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson, Shannon Moss, says the Hancock County Sheriff's office received a call just after 10 AM Monday.

"The deceased was first discovered by a friend who stopped by the house and then contacted the HCSO. The deceased was transported from the scene to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) in Augusta where an autopsy was performed. The OCME is still working to identify the deceased. The HCSO called the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit North to assist with the death investigation."

Moss says there is no threat to the public at this time.
