WATERVILLE — Days after the body of a Waterville woman was found at a beverage store in Waterville, details about the homicide and the suspect police have since identified remain scarce, as authorities continue to search for the suspect who have may left the state.

Police on Thursday issued a warrant for Spridal Hubiak, 20, of Waterville, on a charge of murder in connection with the killing of 52-year-old Angela Bragg, who was found dead at Damon’s Beverage at 6 Jefferson St. early Thursday morning.

Hubiak is believed to have left Maine, according to the Maine State Police. But investigators have not yet said why they believe that or what state Hubiak may be in.

Reached via email Saturday morning, Department of Public Safety public information officer Shannon Moss declined to provide further details about Hubiak or a potential motive for the homicide, given that the investigation is ongoing.

Details on how police are searching for Hubiak — potentially across state lines — also remain unclear.

“We do not discuss law enforcement tactics especially during a search for a person of interest,” Moss wrote.


Hubiak was not known to State Police before the incident, according to Moss, though she said she could not speak for other law enforcement agencies.

The Waterville Police Department had no further information available about Hubiak or his relationship with Bragg, Major Jason Longley said in an email on Saturday.

Hubiak was last known to be driving a black 2010 Ford Taurus with Maine license plate 4666ZR, police said Thursday. Hubiak could be armed and should not be approached, Moss said by email on Saturday.

Police are asking that anyone with information on Hubiak’s whereabouts contact the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit at 207-624-7076, or the Waterville Police Department at 207-680-4700.

Bragg’s body was found early Thursday morning by a coworker at the beverage store and redemption center, where she and Hubiak were employees, police said previously. An autopsy performed on Friday by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death as sharp force injury and the manner of death as homicide.

Damon’s Beverage remained closed Saturday, and a call to the store was not answered. At around 1:45 p.m., the parking lot was empty, except for one truck. Crime scene caution tape had been removed from outside the store.

The store posted on its Facebook page Friday that staff would be meeting Saturday to discuss the “unimaginable tragedy.”
