Brother of Manchester's Denise Robert still hopes for arrest in her shooting death
MANCHESTER - The brother of a Manchester woman shot on her nightly walk around the neighborhood in August is still hoping there will be an arrest.
"The case isn't settled yet," Tom Robert told Fox25. "There's no closure for us. We'd still like to know what happened. Why it had to be."
Denise Robert, 62, was shot to death in the north end of Manchester. She was taking a walk in a neighborhood after a workout, when she was found shot to death at about 9 p.m.
She was killed in a narrow street, and Tom believes Denise saw her killer, and may have tried to fight back.
"My best guess is somebody was in a vehicle," he said. "They needed money, probably for a fix, I think it has something to do with the heroin problem. It was dark. That person probably thought he could scare her. She's an easy target."
Manchester police and the New Hampshire Attorney General's office said they are working the case, but to date, there are no suspects.
Tom doesn't want the case forgotten.
"It's a bit agonizing," he said. "You deal with a loss. We're looking for some closure. Hopefully it will come soon."
There is now installed a stone with Denise's name in that area as a tribute to her.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Manchester Police. There is a $40,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
