AUBURN — Police are investigating the suspicious death of a young man found inside his apartment Monday morning.
A 911 call came in at 5:25 a.m. When police arrived at an apartment at 20 Myrtle St., they found the man dead inside.
The cause of death is unknown at this time and is being treated as suspicious.
The call came from another person living in the apartment.
Detectives expect to be at the scene throughout the day gathering evidence and conducting interviews in the case, Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine State Police, wrote in a prepared statement.
A woman who also lived at the apartment in the duplex was taken to a local hospital for treatment and observation and was admitted, McCausland said.
The man's body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta for an autopsy scheduled for Tuesday. The man's identity is expected to be confirmed at that time, McCausland said, and released after his family has been notified.
According to Auburn Deputy Chief Jason Moen, detectives were the apartment most of the day collecting evidence and conducting interviews.
Police said they planned to search a white Chrysler Sebring convertible parked in the building's driveway.
