A former police chief connected to a cold case from the 1980s NH1 News investigated in 2015 was taken into custody on unrelated sexual assault charges Tuesday.
A grand jury indicted 64-year-old Robert Chambers on seven counts of sexual assault that were alleged to have taken place between 1994 and 2000. He is scheduled to be arraigned in court Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.
Chambers was arrested in 1988 after his father made a death bed confession saying that the body of a slain man, Russell Bean, was buried on the property they shared in Marlow. Bean’s body was found on the property three days later, and his cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma. Bean was 26 when he vanished in 1978.
Chambers was serving as the town's police chief at the time of his arrest, and the charges against him were dismissed for unknown reasons. He later resigned from his position.
No other arrests connected to Bean’s death have been made since.
