Police are investigating the death of a man in Old Orchard Beach.

A man was found dead in an apartment house on Boisvert Street about 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. Maine State Police and Old Orchard Beach police are investigating.

Multiple media outlets reported Tuesday afternoon that the man has been identified as William Popplewell, 65, and that police consider the death suspicious.

Popplewell’s 30-year-old roommate is being interviewed by investigators, York reported, but no arrests have been made at this time.

An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday at the Maine medical examiner’s office in Augusta, McCausland said.

More information will be released later Tuesday, he said.
