Nashua neighborhood shaken by elderly couple's murder
No arrests have been made in connection with the deaths of William and Eleanor Grant, which have been declared homicides by the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office.
"I was shocked. Everyone just wants answers," said Felicia Sullivan, who resides next door at 41 Newbury St. "Everyone wants to know what happened. There are a lot of elderly people in this neighborhood who are frightened."
Officials have said that the public is not in danger.
William Grant, 83, and Eleanor Grant, 78, had lived in the small Newbury Street residence for more than 40 years, according to neighbors, who described the couple as kind and generous.
"What scares me is that he had a set routine of walking the dog, and someone may have taken advantage of that," said Sullivan, adding the couple often left their side door unlocked and open, except at night.
On Monday, Sullivan said she found it odd that the Grant's main door was still closed. Later that day, the couple was found dead by a visiting nurse who cared for Eleanor Grant, who suffered from a terminal illness, had diabetes and required insulin.
Blanchette described William Grant as a pleasant person, and could not believe the nice couple would be the target of such a violent attack.
The list of unanswered questions is causing alarm in the neighborhood, according to Sullivan, who acknowledges her own apartment complex — which abuts the Grant household — currently has some undisclosed issues that it is trying to address.
On Wednesday, Hinckley refused to comment on whether police are close to making any arrests in the case, and also refused to comment on whether a search of the neighborhood resulted in anything helpful to the investigation.
The last double homicide in Nashua took place in 1988 when two city women, Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom, were murdered allegedly at the hands of two men who were arrested more than a year ago for the crimes. Those men, Anthony Barnaby and David Caplin, are currently in the process of being extradited from Canada to New Hampshire.
