AG: Nashua toddler was homicide victim; caused by blunt force trauma

NASHUA - Officials said Friday the death of 3-year-old Brielle Gage has been ruled a homicide.

Gage, who lived at 14 Oak street in Nashua, suffered blunt force trauma, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office. They did not say who is responsible for fatally injuring the child.

Neighbors who live nearby were shocked at the disturbing new details.

"This is a great neighborhood - everybody's friendly. And the next thing you know I found out about that - and I guess every neighborhood has a problem," said Julian Thenh. "It's just sad how that child is so young to end up in a hospital and next thing you know, boom - she's gone."

An investigation is continuing, and no arrests have yet been made regarding the death, the AG's office said.

The girl's mother and her boyfriend have history with police according to multiple reports, including connections to charges of child abuse.

Family members said they will not be making any statements to the media at this time, pending an investigation.

"It's just horrendous when you hear of a child - at that age - you know, going in that way," said Charles Lewis, who lives up the street from Gage's home.

A GoFundMe account has been setup to fund the child's funeral services and a memorial.
