Wendy Ellen Towle

So today the government after all this time reveals  names, and some details. My thanks  to the newspaper for  not simply running a news release.  I still feel they could have pressed the AG harder and earlier. Media pressure is very effective in some circumstances.  Anyone reading the story should wonder if justice was served.



I was away overnight and was alerted concerning the outcome of the   Wendy Towle unexplained death investigation. I had to get up at 2am it bothered  me so much. Shield laws which newspapers, and other media outlets enjoy are not extended to blogs, yet. Any of these could move this story forward quite a bit given the local knowledge. The continuing investigation must be stepped up. One  has to wonder if the initial scene was compromised and hindered the  States ability to secure  an indictment. I am hopeful still, since the case remains open, that Justice  will be served.


Stratham unexplained death

I heard that  there is an effort to keep this under  wraps. Really, why is this not resolved? This may be as big as the Bader  case. Despite that  news, this continues to be a horrendous ordeal for Ms  Towles( deceased) family and neighbors and  friends. Personally, I feel it has dragged on too long. NH  authorities  really need some help when it comes these tragic events. Ms Towles body  was discovered on August 23rd.
