State Police say they are investigating the death of Lawrence Lewis as a homicide. An autopsy was completed today by the State Medical Examiner's Office and additional testing will be done before they arrive at a final conclusion.
Investigators have identified the woman driving the U-Haul truck on Monday as 43 year old Lynda Fogg of the Medway-Mattawamkeag area. She also has been known recently as Lynda Gordon. She and the man who shot and killed himself Monday evening inside that truck were married on March 1. Police also have clarified the name of Fogg's new husband as 59 year old Bruce Heal, who also went by the name -- Bruce King. During the standoff along the Interstate, Heal told Penobscot deputies that he was responsible for Lewis' death and that Lewis' body was hidden inside his house in Molunkus. State Police located the body after the standoff was over Monday night.
Fogg has been interviewed by police a number of times and has been cooperative.
