Homicide in Hinsdale, NH

New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Hinsdale Police Chief Todd Faulkner announce that an investigation is ongoing into a homicide in Hinsdale, New Hampshire.

At approximately 10:15 p.m. on Sunday, October 13, 2013, officers from the Hinsdale Police Department responded to a 911 call that was placed from a residence in Hinsdale. Once there they were met by the family that resides at that residence and discovered that one of the occupants, Dustin Curtiss, age 26, appeared to have suffered at least three gunshot wounds.

Mr. Curtiss was first transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital in Vermont and then to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts where he was pronounced dead. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Massachusetts will be conducting an autopsy to determine Mr. Curtiss's exact cause and manner of death.

The investigation is still in its early stages. However, it appears that Mr. Curtiss was shot during the course of a family dispute that turned violent.

No one has been arrested in connection with the incident and the investigation is ongoing.
