In a police statement obtained by News Center Maine, Maine State Police Det. Sarah Ferland wrote Trudeau suffered “several lacerations on the left side of his body, including his should, clavicle, and arms” and his wrists were “severed through to the bone and attached to his forearms by skin only.”
