Neighbors see no justice in AG's ruling on Nashua couple's murder
Authorities said Thursday that a deceased neighbor of William and Eleanor Grant, the couple brutally stabbed to death inside their home earlier this summer, is likely responsible for their murders.
The neighbor, Shawn P. Burne, killed himself a few days after allegedly robbing the Grants and murdering them both, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.
Barry said the entire situation happening so close to her residence is unsettling.
The bodies of William and Eleanor Grant, ages 83 and 78 respectively, were discovered June 17 in their home at 37 Newbury St. Investigators say circumstantial evidence was gathered that identified Burne, of 41 Newbury St., as the prime suspect.
“Nevertheless, based on the totality of the evidence gathered throughout the investigation, there is probable cause to believe that Burne killed William and Eleanor Grant during a robbery,” said a statement from the Attorney General’s Office. “Since the level of proof against (Burne) at this point does not rise to beyond a reasonable doubt, the Nashua Police Department will not permanently close the investigation into the murders.”
However, the attorney general said there are no other obvious suspects in the case, and no one else is being sought in connection with the murders.
It has shaken Lemon’s sense of security in the city, but he said it isn’t something he worries about often.
A woman who lives in the same apartment complex where Burne resided said Thursday, “I was absolutely surprised,” upon learning of who was likely responsible for the violent deaths of her neighbors.
