  • Kimberly Sirois stands in front of her home at 16 Mercer Road where she discovered the body of slain Somerset County Sheriff's Deputy Cpl. Eugene Cole in her yard around 7:15 a.m. on April 25

A manhunt for suspect John D. Williams, accused of killing a ME sheriff's deputy, entered its third day Friday.

Police are on their third day searching for Williams in and around the heavily wooded rural community of Norridgewock, about 60 miles west of Bangor.

Sheriff's Corporal Eugene Cole was shot and killed while on duty in the town of Norridgewock Wednesday morning between 1:00 and 2:00 a.m.

'If John Williams is listening to me, I'd like to address him directly, ' Lancaster said.

State and local law enforcement poured into the region to look for gunman John Williams, and a massive police presence could be seen in Norridgewock early Thursday, according to WMTW. "We'll do anything to resolve this situation peacefully". Shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday, the cruiser was found abandoned.

"Cops released these photos of Williams" tattoos as the manhunt continues.

A law enforcement official said during a press briefing early Thursday that they do not believe the suspect has become "mobile".


On Saturday, about 150 officers were searching in a wooded area where police believe Williams was cornered when a team including Federal Bureau of Investigation, game wardens and local police located him outside the cabin. A state police spokesman declined to say whether Williams had been apprehended or had turned himself in. She said he also stayed with her last fall, but she asked him to leave because she was suspicious he was using drugs in the house.

But Chris Shulenski, who's friends with Williams, has more details.

Dashcam footage from Cole's patrol auto minutes before he was shot shows Williams entering the store (left) and emerging a minute later at 1.41am.

The suspect had been scheduled to appear Wednesday in a MA court related to a March 22 arrest on suspicion of having a gun without a license.

Williams was due in Haverhill District Court Wednesday for a probable cause hearing regarding his firearms charges.

He offered "limited resistance" when being arrested and taken to the Waterville Police Department for questioning, police said.

Sirois said she has no idea what happened that morning and hopes Williams turns himself in.
