A body was found in Jefferson, ME, buried two feet into the ground on his own property. The man was reported missing in 2010, but was last seen in 2002. The Press Herald sent me up to  Augusta, to talk to the lead from the Maine State Police, and then to Jefferson to see the property. 

The circumstances surrounding how this man ended up where he did are blurred and unclear, and it was deeply unsettling to set foot on property where a homicide occurred. To know that a life, regardless how that man lived, was gone for eight years without someone notifying anyone, will haunt me.
