New Hampshire troopers hold benefit for colleague

BEDFORD — The New Hampshire Troopers Association is holding a fundraising benefit for the commander of the major crimes unit, who is battling stomach cancer.

Lt. James Geraghty was diagnosed with cancer last fall and will undergo experimental chemotherapy.

"Jim has spent a career helping others and it's just the right thing to do to help him today," said state police Col. Bob Quinn.

The 52-year-old Geraghty supervised investigations into high-profile cases such as the deadly 2009 Mont Vernon home invasion; the kidnapping and murder of a Stewartstown 11-year-old and the alleged kidnapping of a Conway teen who remained missing for nine months before she returned home.

The "Go Geraghty Cancer Benefit" was being held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Manchester Christian Church in Bedford.

The benefit will feature live music, food, a Harley Davidson raffle and demonstrations by state police specialized units.
