The Page in Portsmouth received warnings from NH Liquor Commission before man's death


PORTSMOUTH — The death of Joshua Krantz was not the first time The Page restaurant and bar "allowed an unsafe, dangerous and reckless environment to exist," seacoastonline.com reported.

The bar had been warned by the State Liquor Commission 10 times before the incident.

David and Cheryl Krantz, Joshua's parents, filed a lawsuit against the bar, which has since closed. The case has been transferred from Rockingham County Superior court to the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire.

The alleged Liquor Commission infractions date back to 2007 and went all the way through 2013, when the commission revoked The Page's license after Krantz's death.

Officials said that Krantz died at home and his cause of death was "a fractured skull resulting in an acute epidural hematoma" which was ruled as a homicide.

In January 2014, Zachary O'Neil was sentenced to 10½ to 22 years in prison for Krantz's death.
