The body of a man found dead January 11th  in Waterville has been identified. Turns out, the man, 58 year old Richard Lawson, was a fugitive who had been on the run for almost nine years! He died from a heart attack so his death is not considered suspicious.

Officials are not sure why he was in Waterville. He may have been on his way to see family in Penobscot County, but that is just a theory. What they do know for sure is the U.S. Marshals Service wanted him for failure to appear for the second day of a 2004 federal trial in West Virginia, on drug and firearms charges.
