Two men arrested in Bangor triple homicide

BANGOR - A Massachusetts and Rhode Island man are currently behind bars in connection with a homicide that took the lives of three Penobscot County residents back in August.

The bodies of Daniel Borders, 26, of Hermon, Nicolle Lugdon, 24, of Eddington and Lucas Tuscano, 28, of Bradford were discovered in a burned-out car located in the parking lot of a Target Industrial Circle business on Aug. 13.

The car fire was considered an act of arson by police. Authorities later determined the victims were shot to death.

Bangor police along with state police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency began a lengthy investigation that led authorities to request the Penobscot County Grand Jury issue an indictment against Nicholas Sexton, 31, of Warwick, Rhode Island on three counts of knowing or intentional murder and one count of arson in connection with the Aug. 13 incident.

A second indictment was also issued for Randall Daluz, 34 of Brockton, Massachusetts on three counts of knowing or intentional murder and one count of arson.
