Oak Street in Exeter was blocked off for much of the day while police investigated an apparent murder-suicide.
UPDATE: NH AG investigating apparent murder-suicide in Exeter
EXETER - An apparent murder-suicide is under investigation in Exeter.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, Jennifer Noll, 43, and Richard Sanderson, 49, were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds at 6 Oak St. on Tuesday morning.
The AG’s office said Sanderson appears to have taken his own life.
Exeter police were called to the home when a family member requested a welfare check.
When police arrived, they found the couple dead.
A portion of Oak Street was shut down for much of the day as investigators took photos and removed items from the home.
Many in the neighborhood are shocked to see the heavy police presence.
“It’s super quiet, ultra safe - love the neighborhood," said Jennifer Briggs, who lives down the street. "We don't worry about anything or anyone.”
Many of the neighbors we spoke with didn't know this couple. They were renting the home and recently moved there from Hampton.
Noll was a registered veterinarian with the state of New Hampshire. She had previously been married to Andrew Button, who she divorced in 2012.
That divorce made headlines after financial problems swamped Button’s business and a settlement ruled that Noll and her parents were owed tens of thousands of dollars, according to the Valley News.
The investigation into the deaths is ongoing.
Autopsies are scheduled for Wednesday.
