No foul play suspected in death of hunter from Seabrook
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say they believe a 51-year-old Seabrook man died of natural causes while hunting in South Hampton.
The hunter’s family notified police when they discovered he had not returned from hunting along the shores of Tuxbury Pond.
Police discovered his car and the canoe he had used to access remote areas around the pond. His body was discovered about 60 yards inland from his canoe.
Lt. James Juneau — a conservation officer — says there were no signs of trauma or foul play. Juneau says it appears the hunter died of natural causes.
Investigators are still in the process of notifying relatives and are not publicly identifying the man at this time.
N.H. Guard to help New York
CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire National Guard team is heading to New York to help communities getting hit by the incoming Nor’easter.
Gov. John Lynch yesterday activated a 12-man command and control team from the Manchester-based 197th Fires Brigade.
They will work with the New York National Guard’s joint operations center in Latham, N.Y., to assist with health and welfare checks, evacuations, traffic control and other duties.
Lynch said the additional manpower will prevent New York from having to divert critical resources away from ongoing Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
