3 arrested in vandalized grave of businessman in Colebrook
Three people, including a relative, are accused of taking part in ransacking the grave of a New Hampshire businessman who died in 2004.
The cement vault of Eddie Nash was found last month cracked, the casket opened and the remains searched through. The body was left intact at the Colebrook Village Cemetery.
An arrest affidavit names Ginette Dowse, Michael Day, and Nash’s daughter, Melanie Lynch. WMUR reported the police believe Day helped pull the casket out of the ground after Lynch commented about her father being buried with “the real will.” Dowse is accused of providing transportation. It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.
Edward Nash, who died of a heart attack at 68, started an equipment business in 1979 still run by his family. He’s since been reburied.
