N.H.’s cold case unit will soon be in operation
Tuesday, December 1, 2009
CONCORD — Senior Asst. Attorney General Will Delker said Monday that he expects the state’s newly formed cold case unit to become operational by the beginning of next week.
Delker said the unit was formed to investigate New Hampshire’s nearly 100 unsolved murders. For the first three years the unit will be paid for through federal grants.
Delker said the Lakes Region has its share of unsolved homicides, including the 1970 murder of Francis Sidoti in Sanbornton, the 1991 murder of Lisa Begin Wright in Laconia, the 1990 murder of Greg LeFavre in Alton and the 1989 homicide 21-month-old Angela Hazelton in Meredith.
The 1971 unsolved rape and murder of Kathy Lynn Gloddy is perhaps one of the more public of the area’s unsolved crimes and the efforts of her surviving sisters are one of the reasons the cold case unit was formed.
Delker said he has tentatively scheduled a media conference for Monday at 11 a.m. in the Attorney General’s Office.
