Murder Mystery in Acton
I actually like the tendency to lock out the news hounds around murder investigations in my part of the country. It keeps the hype and wild theories out of the media. But this case is close to home. Literally.
Apparently a three season lakeside camp on Great East Lake about 3 miles from me went up in flames a few weeks ago. Took three local fire departments six hours to get it under control. It was immediately called arson. The following Monday in a town in New Hampshire, the ex wife of the camp owner was found shot dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Her dog had also been killed.
The ex husband was a well to do local businessman who owned several businesses that went south with the economy. He and his ex wife's divorce was anything but friendly. I am sure he has been questioned as have all the family and friends. So far though, no arrests.
Maybe its's my new infatuation with writing, but this case has real life murder mystery written all over it. I have entertained several scenarios that may have played out here. I am sure I will be wrong. The husband is certainly looking like the prime suspect given the information I have been able to uncover. The fact that it has been almost 3 weeks now means the cops have many unanswered questions. Hardly the slam dunk case many local lips are going on about.
Anyway, I just thought I would share a rare sensational event here in Acton.
