Police investigating death of Allagash man found near snowmobile trail

The Fort Kent Police Department is investigating the death of an Allagash man found adjacent to a snowmobile trail in Fort Kent.

Yesterday, around 1:25 p.m., police say they responded to a call from a couple who was snowshoeing on the trail.

The deceased was later identified as 25 year old Cody Bennett of Allagash.

Bennett had not been reported missing but had not been seen for several days.

Police say that it appears Bennett was walking on the snowshoe trail when he left the trail itself and possibly became disoriented.

Police also say temperatures in the area were extremely cold during the previous days and that exposure could have contributed to his death.

According to the Fort Kent Police Department, the death does not appear to be suspicious.

The investigation is ongoing.
