Police say there is no sign of a crime in the death of a man whose body was found near his home on Rutland Road in Plymouth on Monday morning.

An autopsy was done on the body of Mark Michaud, 52, of Plymouth, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

“There is no indication of foul play at this point,” McCausland said Monday night. “The medical examiner could find no signs of trauma and so we are going to conduct additional tests in order to hopefully pinpoint the cause of death.”

Investigators were at the scene interviewing neighbors for most of the day Monday, after Michaud’s body was found by hunters in the road a short distance from his home.

Police were asking people in the vicinity of 354 Rutland Road about anything they may have seen or heard that could provide clues about what happened.

Plymouth is southeast of Newport and southwest of Etna in Penobscot County, and has a population of about 1,400.
