LEBANON — More than a week after the Attorney General’s office announced an investigation into the suspicious death of a woman at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, prosecutors have still not released any details about the victim.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Agati did say on Wednesday that the woman’s death was not violent.
“She was a patient who was admitted to the hospital then later died,” he said. “Our investigation began shortly thereafter.”
On Jan. 28, the Attorney General’s office said that a woman receiving medical treatment at the hospital had died and that an autopsy was scheduled to determine the cause. Investigators are still waiting for final results from that autopsy, which could take up to 60 days.
Agati said he doesn’t anticipate any updates until those findings come back.
Rick Adams, a spokesman for the hospital, declined to answer questions or comment. Lebanon Police Chief Richard Mello did not return a request for comment.
