In a Saturday morning press briefing, Maine’s Commissioner of Public Safety, Mike Sauschuck, revealed that the body of Robert Card was discovered in a semi-truck trailer on a recycling company’s property.
CNN reported that Card had been fired from the recycling company recently.
Sauschuck explained that the trailers at the recycling company were full of metal and that law enforcement believed they had searched and cleared all the trailers early on.
However, on Friday, the owner of the recycling company contacted law enforcement to say more trailers were on the company’s adjoining property, and when Maine State Police cleared those trailers, Card’s body was found.
His body was found at 7:45 p.m. in the local time zone.
Maine authorities, along with law enforcement, held a press conference approximately two and a half hours following the discovery of Card’s body.
Maine Gov. Janet Mills (D) revealed during the presser: “The Maine State Police located the body of Robert Card, he is dead.”
“I’m breathing a sigh of relief knowing that Card is no longer a threat to anyone,” she added.
