AG closes case in deadly 2012 Chesterfield shooting
“Based on the investigation conducted, on April 14, 2012, it is clear that Douglas Farr shot and killed victim Mark McAuley. There are no other suspects in the case, and today no other person is being sought in connection with the homicide of Mark McAuley,” states the final report released Thursday by Attorney General Joseph A. Foster and New Hampshire State Police Col. Robert L. Quinn.
Investigators carried on the investigation long after the car crash because they wanted to provide the victim’s family with as many answers as possible, Hinckley said.
Just before 2:30 p.m., Chesterfield police went to North Hinsdale Road in response to a 911 call that a man had been shot. The officer found Farr, his mother, and Farr’s fiancée, Erin Brault, in a vehicle. Burdette and Brault said they found Farr on North Hinsdale Road. He had a gunshot wound to his shoulder, and was crying, according to the report.
“A .40-caliber pistol and a loaded magazine were inside the automobile with the suspect. That weapon belonged to the suspect,” the report said.
“The autopsy revealed that the victim had been shot six times,” the report states.
Hinckley said Farr gave investigators a confusing, convoluted story.
In May 2013, Farr, then 32, and Brault, 35, also of Hinsdale, died in a fiery crash on Route 12 in Keene. The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the deaths of both an accident and the cause to be multiple blunt-force trauma injuries.
