Persons of interest questioned in death of truck driver

| 8/24/2009

Police in Lincoln, ME, say they have identified and interviewed two persons of interest in connection with the death of 55-year-old truck driver from Mountain City, TN.

Brian Steven Isdell was found collapsed in a parking lot there early Thursday morning, Aug. 20. His truck was found idling with its lights on at the opposite end of the parking lot.

The Bangor Daily News reported that witnesses said Isdell had a confrontation with several teenagers in the parking lot prior to his death.

An autopsy ruled that Isdell died of natural causes brought on by heart disease. Though that ruling does mean no homicide charges can be filed, Lincoln police are expected to meet at the Penobscot County District Attorney’s office sometime this week to discuss what, if any, charges can be filed.
