Autopsy of Dustin Curtiss

New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Hinsdale Police Chief Todd Faulkner announce that an autopsy was completed Tuesday, October 15, 2013, on the body of Dustin Curtiss, age 26 of Hinsdale, New Hampshire. Dr. Kimberley Springer, of the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, has determined that the cause of Mr. Curtiss's death was gunshot wounds of the torso and upper extremities. The manner of his death was homicide, meaning that his death was caused by another person.

Mr. Curtiss was killed on October 13, 2013, during the course of an apparent family dispute that turned violent. Mr. Curtiss was first transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital in Vermont by emergency personnel and then to the UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts where he was pronounced dead.

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