Fremont police investigating suspected murder-suicide


FREMONT- Police are calling it an apparent murder-suicide, for much of the day there were two active police scenes in Fremont, NH.

Police were first called to 296 Main Street, when the woman who lived there, did not show up for work.

The other scene was at Jacob's Cove, a development a short distance away, where police found the person they think is responsible. His body was found in a truck.

"Totally shocked because who would want to hurt Mary you know? She was very nice," said Pamela Paige, a neighbor.

The entire town was shocked to find someone so friendly, killed.

"She's a hard worker, she was really excited, she just got into this apartment and she really liked it because she could walk to work and walk home," said Paige.

The store she worked at was closed as state police swarmed the area, a part of their investigation. This is the first homicide in this community in a long time.

"She would call me at 5:30 and I didn't receive a call but I did receive a call from Fremont Police and for that I was just devastated," said Barry Arnofsky, store owner.

People in this town trying to come to grips with exactly what unfolded here today.

"I don't know anybody that wouldn't like Mary. She was a very sweet person and I mean she could talk to anybody, said Paige.

Police believe they found the person responsible for the homicide. His body was located late this afternoon inside a truck where police say he killed himself. What caused this situation to unfold today is under investigation. Police have not released the names of those involved in this murder suicide case.
