Grisly scene described in triple-killing trial

BANGOR — Three bodies found in a burning car in 2012 were damaged so badly that some were missing limbs, a former state medical examiner testified Friday in the trial of two men charged in the gruesome triple killing in Bangor.

As testimony got underway, first responders described the horror of finding the bodies inside a rental car that was discovered burning in a parking lot early on Aug. 13, 2012.

Randall Daluz of Brockton, Mass., and Nicholas Sexton of Warwick, R.I., are charged with three counts of murder and one count of arson.


Prosecutors said drug dealing played a role in the killings of Daniel Thomas Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas Alan Tuscano, 28 of Bradford.

All of the victims had consumed drugs before their deaths, said Dr. Michael Ferenc, who was the state’s deputy chief medical examiner at the time. Borders and Lugdon had been shot in the head, he testified, while the extensive fire damage made it impossible to confirm that Tuscano had been shot.
