Epping selectmen urge charges in death of clerk after robbery
Police charged 27-year-old Jeffrey Seymore of Manchester with theft after he allegedly walked into the Cumberland Farms on Christmas Eve and stole four cartons of cigarettes. Police said he then fled the store, but Blais was able to provide a description of the suspect and vehicle that helped police track down Seymore in Raymond.
She has said her 67-year-old husband was rushing to get caught up so that he could leave when his shift ended at midnight, but then he collapsed inside the store. She said it appears he suffered a fatal heart attack two hours after the theft and has argued that the theft contributed to her husband’s death.
Boffetti is an assistant attorney general, but is filling in as county attorney after Jim Reams was suspended last fall. Newman said police contacted Boffetti in his role as county attorney.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Selectman Jim McGeough made a motion asking Dodge to send a letter to police to encourage the department and its prosecutor to review the case further.
“I just feel that when you come to our town, we want people to know that whether working in our town, living in our town, or passing through our town that safety is one of our key issues in this town, and as leaders of this town, we’ve always put that forward,” McGeough said.
“There’s got to be something more that our prosecutor can do to go a little deeper than just a slap on the wrist with this. They basically took a man’s life away from him, inadvertently,” he said.
“If it goes before a grand jury, you can indict a ham sandwich by the grand jury. You can go that route, but then you’ve got to prove there was intent by the guy who stole the cigarettes, allegedly, to have caused the death of this gentleman, which he probably didn’t do,” Dodge said.
