Three days after a Groveton man was found dead at the scene of a snowmobile crash, investigators are still trying to learn more about what happened.

About 7 p.m. on Saturday a snowmobile rider stopped at a house on Nash Stream Road, reported there was a crash “up the road” and left without providing any additional information, said Conservation Officer Glen Lucas.

About an hour later, searchers found the body of 51-year-old Paul Fortin alone on Corridor 5.

Lucas said he would like to talk to the person who reported the crash as well as anyone who may have seen Fortin that day. He can be contacted through Troop F dispatch at 846-3333.
