A registered sex offender was arrested in Maine in connection with the murder of a 16-year-old girl more than 35 years ago.
Philip Fournier was taken into custody Friday after being accused in the beating death of 16-year-old Joyce McLain, Maine State Police said. Fournier, 55, of East Millinocket, Maine, was 19 at the time of the girl’s death.
On the evening of Aug. 8, 1980, Joyce left her home to go jogging and her body was found near a high school two days later, police said.
Maine State Police Col. Robert Williams said Friday there wasn’t one particular piece of evidence that led to Fournier’s recent arrest, but instead it was the “accumulation” of work over the years.
It’s unclear how well Fournier knew the victim, Williams said, but police believe the two were acquainted. McLain’s mother expressed her relief after the arrest.
