Third death reported on street where Nashua couple killed
Peter Hinckley, assistant attorney general, said his department is not investigating the latest death."I don't want to get the public alarmed," Hinckley said on Thursday. "It is not a homicide."He would not comment on whether the latest death occurred in the same building as William and Eleanor Grant, who were found dead on June 17 at their home at 37 Newbury St. Hinckley also refused to comment on whether any surveillance cameras have been placed in or around the building.
Hinckley said the investigation into their killings is ongoing. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.
Regarding citizen safety, Hinckley echoed a prior comment saying there is no direct threat to the public. However, he said that it is prudent for residents to exercise care.
"We have never identified a suspect," said Lavoie, refusing to comment on whether the individual discovered from the unattended death may have been a suspect.
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.
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. Although police have confirmed the couple died of stab wounds, authorities have not stated what type of weapon was used in the attack.
