MANCHESTER - The investigation continues in the search for answers after the murder of Denise Robert.
Tuesday marked 72 days since the woman was gunned down in a North End neighborhood in Manchester and there are still no arrests in the case. A reward of nearly $40,000 is being offered for answers.
Carpenter Street returned to normal this week after it had FBI agents crawling all over it last week, still searching for clues
Until now, the Robert family has been pretty quiet about the invetigation. However on Tuesday Tom Robert, Denise’s brother, sat down with NH1 News to give an update in the investigation.
“I think what we’re doing is, we are settling in for a longer haul than we had hoped. It’s just going to take time,” said Robert
Some of the other Robert siblings are getting anxious and angry, he told NH1 News. It’s been nearly three months and little headway into who is responsible.
“They don’t tell us but that’s OK because at least for me I understand that they can’t tell us things. It may compromise the very thing we’re all looking to accomplish which is to find out what happened,” said Robert.
Is the family’s hope wavering?
One woman in the neighborhood, who didn’t want to be identified, called the FBI showing up a "dog and pony show" put on by the Attorney General.
She was unimpressed.
“I’m wondering if they actually know anything because that’s what it seems like. At first they don’t know and now the FBI is involved?” said the woman.
Robert said he’s had time to cross out theories along with police. Chasing down leads that just don’t seem feasible, but at the moment he has settled on one.
“Further investigating may reveal that it probably, that it could be, she just walked into a bad situation involving drugs. I would not be surprised if it had something to do with it. I’m not saying my sister did drugs or was involved with drugs but she may have walked down the street and interrupted something,” said Robert.
He did confess to NH1 News that he still waits for the day where the phone rings and on the other end police with good news and their sister’s murder mystery solved, until then he has to wait patiently.
