ROCKLAND - Two remain missing after a boat sinks near Matinicus Island.
State Police were in Newport today investigating an unsolved murder that dates back to the 1970's.
State Police spokesman Steve McCausland says a team of 6 detectives returned to an area off Old County Road which is the area where the skeleton of Ellen Choate was found in a shallow grave in 1977.
Choate had gone missing in 1975.
McCausland said that the water levels in Sebasticook lake, where the body was found, are currently very low, allowing investigators an opportunity to look at things that are usually under water.
Choate, originally from Pennsylvania had been hired to work at a Bangor child care center, but on her way north got off a bus in Newport and was never seen again...
We'll continue to follow this story and get you the latest information as it comes available.
A legal victory Friday for Kaci Hickox. She's the nurse who has been at the center of controversy since returning from Africa where she cared for patients stricken with the ebola virus. Hickox was supposed to abide by a 21 day quarantine imposed by the state in order to prevent the disease from spreading here. Hickox has maintained that she's perfectly healthy and took the matter to court. On Friday, a judge ruled the Maine Department of Health and Human Services failed to prove that limiting her movements was necessary to protect others. She will still be ordered to comply with regular monitoring by health officials and will also have to let the state know when she plans to travel. Hickox has remained holed up in a Fort Kent home for much of the week.
