Weare police shooting settlement a surprise
“I guess I can say I’m just glad it’s behind us,” Clow said. “No doubt it will reflect on our premium from Primex.”
Two months ago, New Hampshire Attorney General Joe Foster said an investigation was unable to find that Nadeau was justified in shooting deJesus. Prosecutors twice brought the investigation before a grand jury, but they said they could not reach a conclusion about what happened, given conflicting witness statements and a lack of corroborating evidcence.
“The purpose of this release is to ‘buy peace’ from further dispute and controversy between and among” the DeJesus family and Weare, the settlement reads. It also includes a confidentiality clause.
The lawyer for the DeJesus estate, Larry Vogelman of the Nixon, Vogelman law firm, ruled out the idea of having Nadeau fired as part of the settlement.
Clow said Nadeau remains a police officer in the town, which he said he’s OK with. He said he never had an issue with Nadeau before the deJesus matter, and the town police department has changed since October, when John Velleca took over as police chief.
