UPDATE: New England man saved at sea said he didn't kill grandpa, didn't harm mom
The Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) — A man rescued after spending a week at sea says he had nothing to do with his grandfather's 2013 unsolved slaying and didn't harm his missing mother.
Twenty-two-year-old Nathan Carman tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that the fishing boat he was in with his mother sank within a matter of minutes. Carman was rescued Sunday. His mother, Linda Carman, of Connecticut, is missing and presumed dead.
Carman told the AP by telephone that after water began pouring into his boat, he saw his mother in the cockpit. He said he grabbed survival gear, then looked back and she was gone.
Carman says he was like a son to his grandfather, who was slain in Connecticut. Police there say Carman had been a suspect, but was never charged.
