    1975 cold case murder probe revived in Newport
    By Evan Belanger Staff Writer
    Kennebec Journal Posted October 31

    State police are seeking new evidence in the murder of Ellen Choate, who disappeared in 1975, and whose remains were found in Newport in 1977.

    [...]

    “Ellen Choate was found in a shallow grave in Newport, and we have made the decision to revisit that area today looking for additional evidence that might be related to the case,” said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.

    McCausland would not say Friday what led police to revisit the case, saying only it was part of a continuing investigation. No person has been arrested in connection with the murder, he said.

    “We have six investigators up there, and they will be up there for the rest of the afternoon,” he said.
