Months later, cause of Canterbury logger's death remains a mystery
Kelso’s body was found Feb. 23 off Borough Road in Canterbury. News reports at the time said he died of multiple injuries, and authorities said more details would possibly be released in a week or so.
“We’re just waiting. We know nothing, we’ve heard nothing. No one’s contacted us,” said Linda Kelso, the mother of Mark Kelso.
He said the office is waiting for the final autopsy report to determine how Kelso died and what caused the death.
Earlier this week, the Concord Monitor reported that Kelso had died from a gunshot wound to the head. In Feburary, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office told the family they were investigating the death as a homicide; they prepared the family for news reports, the family told the newspaper.
McCormack said a variety of reasons exist for the length of the investigation, including the final autopsy report and “(we) had to complete certain aspects of the investigation that took more time.”
“Whatever it takes,” she said, “just get it right.”
