CUMBERLAND – Just days before the one-year anniversary of the murder of Stanley Stowik, Police Chief John Desmarais is conceding he’s “pretty sure” who did it but doesn’t have the evidence to assure a conviction.

“The case is moving forward,” said Desmarais, as he continues to express confidence in a final resolution.
