Abuse suspects may return to N.H. soon

PLAISTOW — Roland Dow and Jessica Linscott, suspects in a child abuse case and the targets of a widespread police hunt for two weeks, will be in a Florida courtroom tomorrow, two days after they were nabbed at a theme park in Florida.

Rockingham County Attorney Jim Reams, speaking to reporters outside the police station this afternoon, said the two could be back in New Hampshire in a week to face child-abuse related charges.

If they fight extradition, it may take as long as 45 days.

"Bail should not be granted," Reams said.

Dow, 27, is accused of burning and beating Linscott's 3-year-old son. Linscott, 23, faces child endangerment charges.

Investigators released no details on the tip that led to their capture yesterday in Orlando.

They said they will investigate whether the couple had help fleeing.

Police, the public and press all received praise for their roles in the manhunt.

"We knew the chances of us getting them were very high," Reams said.
