Reopening: Maine Business Where Woman Was Murdered to Resume Operations with Adjusted Hours

WATERVILLE, Maine — Damon’s Beverage, the business in Waterville where a woman was tragically found murdered last week, is set to reopen on Tuesday for the first time since the incident.

The decision to reopen comes after the body of 52-year-old Angela Bragg was discovered by an employee of Damon’s Beverage last Thursday. The Maine chief medical examiner determined that Bragg’s cause of death was “sharp force injury.” Following the tragic discovery, the suspect in the murder, 20-year-old Spridal Hubiak, also an employee at Damon’s Beverage, was apprehended early Sunday morning in Flippin, Arkansas.

Authorities found Hubiak sleeping in a parking lot and attempting to evade police in a 2010 Ford Taurus, the same vehicle associated with the initial search in Maine. Following a pursuit, Hubiak exited the vehicle with a rifle, leading to an altercation with law enforcement in which he sustained injuries. Extradition proceedings are expected to bring Hubiak back to Maine.

Damon’s Beverage announced that its adjusted hours for the week will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day. The decision to reopen comes after discussions with employees and highlights the community’s efforts to recover from the tragic event. There is solidarity among the staff and management as they navigate this difficult time.

The reopening of Damon’s Beverage represents a small step towards normalcy following the tragic and unsettling events. The community is still coming to terms with the loss of Angela Bragg and the circumstances surrounding her untimely death. As the legal process continues, the community is focused on healing and moving forward.

In summary, Damon’s Beverage in Waterville, Maine will reopen its doors following the devastating murder of one of its employees, Angela Bragg. The suspect in the case, Spridal Hubiak, has been apprehended in Arkansas, and extradition proceedings are underway to bring him back to Maine. The decision to reopen reflects the resilience of the community and the determination to move forward from this tragic event.
