ORONO - Officials were called to a University of Maine off-campus housing complex Tuesday night for what they're calling an apparent suicide.
Just after 9 p.m., the Orono Fire Department, Orono Police Department, and University of Maine Campus Police arrived at a building on Centre Drive in the Stillwater Village Apartment Complex.
Officials say a friend of the deceased, white male had not heard from him in a couple days and found him upon entering the apartment.
"Contact the University of Maine, they're very good at some of the grief counseling so we've asked them to come over and help out some of the friends that are aware of what happened," says Chief Josh Ewing of the Orono Police Department.
Orono police will continue to investigate the incident. The medical examiner has been called and will perform and autopsy in the coming days.
