Maine officials have released the name of a Vermont man who lost his life over the weekend when he apparently slipped off a cliff while hiking.

The Maine Marine Patrol said 29-year-old James Dupont of Essex Junction was walking with a group of hikers early Saturday afternoon when he decided to leave the trail.

A Patrol Sergeant said Dupont then fell 25 feet into a crevasse.
