07/19/2013 08:35 AM ET  

Maine state police say detectives will continue to gather evidence from the scene of a suspicious death in the town of Detroit.

DETROIT, Maine (AP) _ Spokesman Steve McCausland said Somerset County deputies were called to a home early Thursday for a report of a middle-age man being found dead in a Main Street home.

An autopsy is planned on Friday.

State police, which investigate homicides, were called in to assist.

For now, though, McCausland said it's being treated as a "suspicious death.''

The man's name is being withheld as police try to locate relatives to notify about the death.
