NH AG's Office investigating 'untimely' death of Gilford woman


GILFORD - The Attorney General's office is investigating the untimely death of a woman whose body was recovered from 663 Cherry Valley Road Tuesday.

Neighbors and friends are left with unanswered questions and continue to deal with what they saw.

One neighbor - who didn’t want to be identified - is still trying to piece together what she saw in apartment 208.

The apartment was rented out to a man by the name of Robert Farmer, his girlfriend, and their son. Farmer’s girlfriend is believed to be the body the Attorney General found.

“The son came knocking on my door,” said the neighbor. “Ringing my door bell, and he didn’t let up and we answered the door, and he said, 'I think my mom is dead. She’s gone.' ”

The Attorney General could not confirm if child services are involved, the cause of death, or if a person of interest is in custody. They have said that there is no threat to the public at this time.

“They were very good people,” said the neighbor referring to Farmer and his girlfriend. “They were very nice, and you know, good with the kids.”

The neighbor told NH1 News that she ran over to the apartment to help the woman but police had already been called by someone and kept her back from the body.

Farmer worked at the Applebee’s in Tilton and had made contact with an employee there the night of his girlfriend’s death.

“I got a message from my friend Bob,” said one of the waiters from the Applebee’s. “[The voicemail] saying that his girlfriend passed away. I asked him if it’s because he was angry or if because he found her deceased.”

Since that voicemail, friends tell NH1 News they haven’t been able to reach Farmer, but don’t suspect him in the death.

“I know she had her problems,” said the friend who also told NH1 News Farmer’s girlfriend had issues with substance abuse and wonders if that could have caused her death.

On Cherry Valley Road, all that remains of the Attorney General’s investigation is crime tape and paper booties.

If anyone has any information, they are urged to contact the crime unit at 603-223-3856.
