TROY — State police continue to investigate the death of a Troy man found in his home early Saturday morning.

An autopsy by the Office of the State Medical Examiner was scheduled for Sunday in Augusta, and more details will be released after it is complete, said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, on Sunday afternoon.

Steven Hodgdon, 49, was found dead in his home on 188 Rutland Road by Waldo County Sheriff’s Office deputies after they were called to the residence at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Hodgdon lived in the home with his teenage son, who is now staying with relatives, according to a news release from McCausland sent Saturday afternoon.

A state police trooper remained stationed outside Hodgdon’s house on Sunday morning. McCausland said troopers “held the house” overnight and investigators were back at the scene on Sunday afternoon. It is common for troopers to remain at the scene of a death under investigation, McCausland added.

McCausland would not release further details about the case, but said that police talked to Hodgdon’s teenage son. He was not taken into custody.
