Robert Card manhunt: Experts weigh Maine mass murder suspect’s potential escape routes

LEWISTON, Maine — Police in Maine found the abandoned Subaru Outback of suspected mass murderer Robert Card at a boat launch Wednesday evening after a shooting rampage left 18 dead and 13 injured at two locations – a bar and a bowling alley.

Although police identified Card, who appeared on surveillance video carrying a semiautomatic rifle into a bowling alley and then a nearby bar as a person of interest early, he remains at large Friday morning.

Maine Public Safety Commissioner Mike Sauschuck said Friday morning that dive teams would begin searching the Androscoggin River with aerial support near the boat ramp where Card’s car was found abandoned.

Tactical teams, including state and local police and members of the ATF and FBI, served search warrants at properties linked to the suspect in his hometown of Bowdoin throughout the day and into the night Thursday but have not found the suspect in what a neighbor described as “his stomping ground.” 

 

Card is considered armed and dangerous. As a result, Lewiston and the surrounding areas have been placed under a lockdown order. The streets are largely empty, with many businesses closed.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 207-213-9526 or 207-509-9002.
