Maine State Police on Friday offered no further update of the investigation into the Tuesday night death of a Parkman man and the serious injury of another man at the same location.

David Grant, 61, was found dead at his home at 114 Packard Road in Parkman, a back road between Route 150 and the Dexter town line. His body was taken overnight to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta, where an autopsy was conducted Wednesday. Autopsy results haven’t been released.

Another man, whom police have not identified, was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland wouldn’t say what caused Grant’s death and the unidentified man’s injuries.

On Wednesday, McCausland said state police investigators were working to determine the circumstances under which Grant had died, including gathering evidence from the home, consulting with the Medical Examiner’s Office and monitoring the injured man’s condition.

McCausland on Friday said there was nothing new to report on the case and would not say whether police were investigating the case as a homicide.

“We will have something, but not today,” he said Friday afternoon.

Packard Road is near Packard Brook, a marshy area close to Route 150 and not far from Wellington Road in Parkman, where in October 2003 a U.S. Army soldier who was on leave in Maine was shot to death by two men from Madison.

Chad Slimm, 20, and Arthur “Artie” Belanger Jr., 21, were convicted in the murder of 23-year-old Brian Vines, a transient from Fort Campbell, Ky., an Army town where Belanger and Vines reportedly had been stationed.

Vines had been in Maine to visit Belanger and to attend Harvest Fest, a late summer music festival in Norridgewock, in the fall of 2003. According to the state police affidavit at the time, Vines was shot four times — twice in the head, once in the neck and once in the arm, a shot which appeared to enter from the rear of the body.

The rural camp was located about a mile from Route 150, 11 miles north of the Somerset County town of Harmony and not far from Packard Road, where Grant’s body was found Tuesday night.
