A Bangor man was arrested Friday in connection with the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in a burning truck.

John De St. Croix, 25, is charged with two counts of murder, according to Bangor police.

Bangor police say the bodies of Michael Bridges, 43, and Desiree York, 36, were discovered in a box truck after a fire was doused late Wednesday night. The truck was found in an area that is a popular gathering place for the city’s homeless population.

Both Bridges and York were residents of Bangor.

De St. Croix was arrested Friday at the Bangor police station after being interviewed by detectives.

The case remains under investigation and police anticipate filing additional charges.

Bangor police on Friday conducted a news conference, which was recorded by News Center Maine (WCSH/WLBZ).
