UPDATE: Brown leather couch may factor in effort to find killer of Manchester's Denise Robert

MANCHESTER - A leather couch left on the side of the street on the night Denise Robert was shot may play a role in solving who killed her.

According to the Union Leader, the couch presents a possible lead, and a man who had stopped and sat on the couch with friends on the night of the shooting was recently questioned by police. The brown leather couch was close to where Robert's body was found. But by the time police arrived in response to the shooting, the couch was gone.

The AG's office said they would not comment about the couch, and reported no new developments.

Ray MacWilliam, a neighbor, offered one idea about why that particular area was targeted.

"This particular section of Ray and Carpenter is more dark than other areas, and it's not lit as well as other areas where people walk," he said.

Another nearby resident, who asked not to be identified, described what he heard that night.

"Before the gun shot there was complete silence, no door slam, no words, no arguments, nothing. If he had spoken a word to her, we would've heard it because we could so clearly hear people talking on the couch ten minutes later," he said.

The night the couch was left at the curb was a trash pick-up night. The reward for information leading to the prosecution of the killer is now more than $37,000.
