Updated Investigation into Two Untimely Deaths in Derry

Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and Derry Police Chief Edward B. Garone announce further information regarding the on-going investigation into two untimely deaths in Derry.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., a call came into the Derry Police Department for a welfare check at 30 Kendal Pond Road, Unit #35, in Derry. Unit #35 is a mobile home in a mobile home community. Officers did not receive a response when they tried to make contact with persons inside the unit. The officers made entry and discovered the bodies of Matthew Edmunds, age 39, and his 6-year-old son Preston Connor Edmunds, in a bedroom. Matthew and Preston were the only residents of the home.

Chief Medical Examiner Jennie V. Duval has scheduled autopsies on both individuals for February 13, 2018. No further information is expected until those autopsies are completed. Again, there is no known risk of harm to the general public.
