Spaulding High School students mourn death of classmate found dead in Rochester motel room


ROCHESTER- Rochester Police continue to investigate the death of a Spaulding High School student over the weekend. They are awaiting toxicology results, but are treating the death of 17-year-old Eve Tarmey as a possible drug overdose.

UPDATE: Spaulding High School student found dead in Rochester motel

It was a difficult day for students, many didn’t hear about Eve’s death until they got to school Monday morning.

Eve’s classmates describe her as a good person. They say she went through a lot at home and at school.

The high school senior was found dead Saturday in a motel room in town. Her mother and an adult male were also in the room.

A memorial is set up in the woods next to the high school. Some students tell NH1 News they’re not allowed to walk through the path alone because kids are known to do drugs out there.

Sophomore Skie Plaisced says it’s not surprising to hear a classmate may have died from heroin.

“Kind of not really, there’s a lot of kids doing it in the school. A lot of kids, and a lot of kids doing other drugs that can make them overdose and stuff. I didn’t think she was one of them that was doing it. She was a good person, so I didn’t think she was doing it,” Plaisced said.

No word if the mother and man will face charges.

Grief counseling will continue to be available to students throughout the week.
