ROCKPORT, Maine (AP) — A body found last week in the woods in Maine has been identified as a man wanted for sexually assaulting a child.
Lewiston police said Wednesday that a medical examiner had confirmed the remains found in Rockport were those of 45-year-old Kevin Mitchell.
Police say Mitchell sexually assaulted a child under the age of 12 from December 2016 to April of this year.
