Contractor for Blue Hill Shed Project Murdered

BLUE HILL — A Hudson man who was murdered earlier this month in Bradford had been contracted by the town of Blue Hill to build the town’s first salt/sand shed, which is being built off the Ellsworth Road.

David Trask, 71, of Hudson died of head injuries, the Maine State Police reported.

Peter Robinson, 48, of Bradford has been charged with Trask’s murder.

Detectives said the two men knew each other and a dispute between them escalated into a confrontation.

Blue Hill Selectman Jim Schatz said despite Trask’s death, the project is on schedule.

Trask’s son, David Trask Jr., is the foreman on the project, Schatz said.

“They’re very conscientious,” Schatz said.

The general contractor and his son specialized in building salt/sand sheds.

Funeral services for Trask were held Friday in Corinth, according to the obituary.
