THOMASTON, Maine — Police have identified a man whose decomposed remains were found last week behind a Dunkin’ Donuts on Route 1 in Thomaston as Joshua Robichaud.
Robichaud’s remains were discovered Wednesday, Jan. 25 in a wooded area behind the donut shop’s parking lot. His body was taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta to be identified.
Robichaud, 41, who had no known address, was last seen leaving the Knox County Jail in May. He had been arrested in Lewiston on two outstanding warrants for outstanding fines and transferred to the Knox County Jail, according to a press release from Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.
Robichaud was held at the Knox County Jail on May 24 and 25, according to a jail official.
His death is not considered suspicious, “but the medical examiner has additional testing to be completed before finalizing a cause of death,” McCausland said.
