State police Lt. Jim Geraghty, former head of major crimes unit, has died of stomach cancer

New Hampshire State Police Lt. Jim Geraghty, the former commander of the major crimes unit, died Saturday following a long battle with stomach cancer.
"The New Hampshire Troopers Association would like to express how grateful they are to everyone that supported Lt. Geraghty and his family through his battle with cancer," the organization posted on its Facebook page.
Service announcements will follow within the next couple of days.
Lt. James Geraghty was diagnosed with cancer a year an a half ago, and the troopers association held a major fundraiser in September to benefit him and his family

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

During his career in law enforcement, 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.
