Suspicious Death in Hudson, New Hampshire

Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella, New Hampshire State Police Colonel Nathan Noyes, and Hudson Police Chief Tad Dionne announce that an investigation is ongoing into the suspicious death of a resident of Hudson, New Hampshire.

On June 22, 2022, the Hudson Police Department received a law enforcement notification from the Division for Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) about concerns regarding an infant admitted to a hospital in Massachusetts the night before. The infant, 15 days old, was taken from his parents' home, at an apartment on Burns Hill Road in Hudson, to a local hospital in medical distress. He was later transported to the hospital in Massachusetts for treatment, where he later died on June 30, 2022.

The Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on the child on July 1, 2022. The final autopsy results are not expected for several months pending additional studies.

The parties involved in the incident have been identified and based on the information known to investigators at this time, there is no known danger to the public. The circumstances surrounding this child's death are being actively investigated while the cause and manner of death is under investigation.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available while protecting the integrity of that investigation.
