AUGUSTA – State police believe they know the identity of the woman found dead in an apartment building on Water Street in Augusta Tuesday.
Authorities believe 54-year-old Joan Hadley, a transient formerly from Windsor, died within the past two weeks.
Hadley’s relatives have been notified, but the state medical examiner’s office is still working on a positive identification.
Police say no immediate cause of death has been determined, but there are no obvious signs of foul play.
According to a public safety spokesperson, Hadley did not rent the apartment but had the permission of the renter to stay there while he was elsewhere.
