Default Two found dead in Belmont; one man detained as part of investigation

Very sad, I hope they find out what happened soon.
Quote:

BELMONT — Homicide investigators were working late into Friday night on what they termed the suspicious deaths of two people at 20 Sunset Drive in Belmont.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin, chief of the homicide unit, said an investigation is ongoing into the deaths of two of the home's occupants.

Police said they responded to the single-family home at 11:03 a.m. Friday. After police entered, they discovered an adult male and an adult female inside the home, both deceased, Strelzin said.

The state's Medical Examiner will be conducting autopsies to determine the cause and manner of deaths. Their identities are being withheld pending notification of next of kin, he said.

Strelzin would not comment on the causes of death or if there are any suspects in the case.

"We have not arrested anybody as of yet," he said late Friday night.

Tilton police say they have detained someone wanted in relation to the investigation.

After a be-on-the-lookout alert went out at 1:50 p.m. Friday, Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier said one of his officers detained Shawn Carter, address not given, at 2:20 p.m. and turned him over to Belmont police as requested.

The detention was related to the current investigation in Belmont by the New Hampshire State Police Major Crimes Unit, Cormier said.

The alert said Carter was possibly armed with weapons and was to be considered dangerous, Cormier said.

Strelzin would not comment on Shawn Carter.

The owner of the home said the occupants, who were named Carter, moved in about a month ago. There were two males, he said, one age 31 and the other age 40, and their mother.

At one point Friday afternoon, Ed Crawford, the owner of neighboring Winnisquam Marine, said police asked the marina to close its doors for a period that lasted a few minutes.

"Apparently they were looking for someone," Crawford said.

Crawford said he hadn't seen anyone at the home this week.

Strelzin confirmed that an alert went out Friday afternoon to Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith in connection with the case, but would not give further details.

Inter-Lakes School District Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said she received the alert at 1:45 p.m., which said there was a dangerous situation in another unnamed town nearby that might "spill over."

Ormond said she didn't know what the danger was, but put the school into a "secure campus" mode for a period of about 45 minutes. She wasn't sure what the link to Belmont might have been.

The New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit and the Belmont Police Department are continuing to investigate the incident, and ask that anyone with information call the New Hampshire State Police at 223-4381.

Default AG says Belmont murder victims were mother and son, found hacked to death


BELMONT — The two people found dead in a Lake Winnisquam rental home Friday morning were a mother and son who were hacked to death, state investigators said.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Strelzin said the state medical examiner had determined that Priscilla Carter, 59, and Timothy Carter, 39, both of 20 Sunset Drive, died from multiple wounds.
Priscilla Carter also suffered blunt force injuries, Strelzin said.
No one has been arrested in connection with the murders yet, Strelzin said. He would not comment on the weapon or weapons used in the murders.
Strelzin also would not comment on the status of the youngest member of the household, who was identified by the family’s landlord as Shawn Carter, 31.
Tilton police said they arrested Shawn Carter after an alert went out at 1:50 p.m. on Friday. Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier said one of his officers detained Carter at 2:20 p.m. and turned him over to Belmont police as requested. The detention was related to the Belmont homicides investigation, Cormier said Friday.
The alert said Carter was possibly armed and was to be considered dangerous, Cormier said.
Strelzin would not comment on Shawn Carter’s arrest. "No one is in custody in relation to the homicides," he said. But he added: "Based on the investigation to date, we do not have any information that indicates that the general public is currently at risk due to the occurrence of the homicides in Belmont.’’
Belmont police Cpl. Stephen Akerstrom refused Saturday night to confirm whether Shawn Carter was in custody or whether charges of any kind were filed against him. Akerstrom referred all questions to Strelzin.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about the incident or who knew the Carter family to contact the New Hampshire State Police at 223-4381.
Strelzin confirmed that state Fish and Game divers were in the lake waters for several hours Saturday morning looking for evidence.
First responders
At 11:03 a.m. Friday, police responded to the single-family home and discovered the bodies of a man and a woman inside.
A police alert went out Friday afternoon to Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith in connection with the case, but investigators have not given details of why it was sent.
Inter-Lakes School District Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said she received the alert at 1:45 p.m.; it said there was a dangerous situation in a nearby town that might "spill over."
Ormond said she didn’t know what the danger was, but put the school into a "secure campus" mode for about 45 minutes.
She wasn’t sure what the link to Belmont might have been. Students went home at their usual time, she said, and there was no disruption of the school.
The owner of a marina next to the home said he had to take out a restraining order against Shawn Carter two weeks ago.
Ed Crawford, the owner of Winnisquam Marine, said: "It was really strange; he kept wandering over into our buildings. He kept saying he had to find ‘Alex,’’’ and Crawford had to lock the gate to his business.

There has been some chatter that he has a facebook page with some very strange comments, but Facebook is full of nutty stuff.

Ya that in itself is pretty scary. They have nothing at all to say about a motive or a suspect, but the public is not in danger.
