Victim In Millinocket Home Invasion Dies
Sate Police on Saturday say the male victim in a Millinocket home invasion has died.
Wayne Lapierre, 59, died at about 10 p.m. Friday at Eastern Maine Medical Center and his death is now being investigated as a homicide.
Lapierre and his wife, Diem Lapierre, 33, were shot when intruders entered their home earlier in the week.
Investigators believe the couple’s home on Massachusetts Avenue was specifically targeted by the intruder or intruders.
The Lapierres were taken by ambulance to Millinocket Regional Hospital, which then went on partial lockdown to control access to the emergency room. The lockdown was lifted after the couple was transferred to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.
No arrests have been made. Police Thursday were still conducting interviews and gathering evidence at the home.
Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious near the home Tuesday is asked to contact Maine State Police in Bangor at (207) 973-7300.
