Police Investigate Local Home In Connection With Manchester Murder

Police from Londonderry and Manchester executed a search warrant in connection with the two-year old murder of Denise Robert. Officers investigated 43 Kendall Pond Road #B in Londonderry last Friday with assistance from the New Hampshire State Police, according to a news release from Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald.

The home is part of a duplex, located by the South Elementary School. According to WMUR, investigators arrived at the home in the morning and crime scene tape went by noon. The Manchester Police Department’s Crime Scene Van arrived around 1:30 p.m. Officers and investigators were then seen sorting through boxes and photographing the items within.

The news release from the Attorney General’s office states “in order to protect the integrity of the on-going investigation, what items are being sought and what, if any, items are located will not be disclosed.”

The Londonderry Times reached out to Detective Christopher Olson of the Londonderry Police Department, but he did not return requests for comment by the time this article went to print.
