In Madbury: 'My son has died'; authorities won't confirm Maine stabbing victim's ID

But across the street from the police-tape-surrounded home on Sunday afternoon, a man sat crying outside 31 Evans Road.
"My son died today, and I ask that you respect my privacy," said the man, who declined to identify himself to a Union Leader reporter. "The police asked me not to say anything to anyone and they are up there right now (motioning to the cruisers parked up Evans Road), going through things, but I’m not ready to talk about it. This is the hardest day of my life, my son has died ..."
Police received a report Saturday from a Madbury man who said his son was missing, according to Senior New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin. New Hampshire State Police were also notified and joined the investigation at the home on Evans Road.
According to the news release issued by New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, the body of a young man was discovered Saturday afternoon in Lebanon, Maine, about 18 miles north of Madbury.
Results from an autopsy performed Sunday listed the cause of death to be stab wounds; the death was classified as a homicide.
Traffic was stopped Sunday afternoon outside the home at 34 Evans Road, with two police cruisers and a state police evidence van on scene.
Strelzin said authorities need definitive confirmation on the identity of the body in Maine.
"That could come in a day or two, but we are not prepared to say the body in Maine is the missing Madbury teen," Strelzin said outside the Madbury police and fire station on Route 4 Sunday evening. "I doubt there will be any new announcements on this (Sunday night), until we get a positive identification."
The state police Major Crimes Unit was sent to the Evans Road address shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday, Strelzin said, after Madbury police responded to a call just after 8 that morning.
In the news release, authorities described the investigation as a cooperative effort between New Hampshire and Maine law enforcement.
