Police identify body found near Fort Kent trail

FORT KENT - Fort Kent police are investigating the death of an Allagash man found near a snowmobile trail.

Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday police arrived at a woods trail near Pleasant Street in Fort Kent after a couple noticed a dead body while snowshoeing.

The man was later identified as 25-year-old Cody Allen Bennett of Allagash.

Police say Bennett was walking along the trail when it seems he became disoriented.

Authorities say exposure to the elements could have played a role in his death, and that the incident is not suspicious.
