In spite of the harassment and obstructive acts Detective Mozrall pushed forward and ended up solving the case. His investigation demonstrated that Jan and Steven Dow were murder victims, the car accident was staged, the fire set, and the perpetrator Officer Richard Dow. Detective Mozrall's investigation into this matter also demonstrated that this incident was deliberately botched in 1982.
At one point, the New Hampshire Attorney General's office was preparing to go forward to a Grand Jury with this case, but then abruptly decided not to move forward.
But that's nothing new. There are a heck of a lot of unsolved murders in New Hampshire, particularly in the North Country. Women seem disproportionately represented as noted in this unsolved murders website, which as noted herein, contains only some of the unsolved murders.
Governor Lynch's AG Kelly Ayotte and the establishment unlawfully withheld documents from Fred Murray, the father of one missing woman. See Murray v. NH Police, 913 A.2d 737 (2006).
New Hampshire tolerates abusive police officers and vigilante justice as well. In particular "Corporal" Norman Bruce McKay was allowed to run amok in the picturesque Franconia area near the home of poet Robert Frost. There have been many very serious complaints filed against Bruce McKay, including one from a fire chief and a woman who claimed he "terrorized" her with a knife near hear privates for no lawful reason in a DUI stop that Judge Peter Cyr ruled without probable cause. McKay was shot last year as a result of his abusive excesses, to wit: Unauthorized vehicular and OC Spray assault against Liko Kenney and bystander Caleb Macaulay. Then Gregory W. Floyd, an historically dangerous man with 3 prior felonies and a history of gun violations under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1) then likely murdered Liko Kenney and clearly issued material lies about his actions. Review the forensic files here and read more about Floyd, now incarcerated for other reasons including criminal threats to a neighbor here.
AG Ayotte gave Floyd a pass in 24 hours on the killing of Liko Kenney and the criminal threats to Caleb Macaulay to keep everything quiet. She also lied about Floyd's actions as noted here, and lied to a former AAG/Veterans for Peace U.N. delegate Harold Burbank read the email chain here.
Governor Lynch refused to respond to a very nice and professional letter that I wrote that was published in the Caledonian Record. All I asked him for was a fact-finding tour, just one or two visits to get input from local citizens. He never even responded.
Watch the video of KingCast at his office, politely requesting that he engage in a fact-finding tour. He never responded and his press secretary Colin Manning hung up on me. Governor Lynch is, thankfully, up for re-election this year. Attorney Ayotte is appointed so perhaps we can say good riddance to bad rubbish in one fell swoop.
See no tourists feared Liko Kenney but they sure as heck feared Bruce McKay and I've personally met many people here in Nashua who were upset and fearful of McKay, and these are middle-aged people with families, money and sound reputations. Here's what one of them told me directly at our friend's 50th birthday party last year:
"He was such a ridiculous hard-ass for no reason. 'Your light's too bright', or whatever he had a hair across his ass about, they gave him carte blanche up there."
"Wow," I said.
"And one time I saw him get 22 people kicked out for no reason, just a family there with young kids, no Harleys or nothing. I hate to say he should have been killed, but........"
This is a documented summary of Bruce McKay's legacy. People like NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Governor Lynch allow this to happen though, in part because Bruce McKay helped apprehend some people who had a role in killing other officers many years ago. That was a Good Act on the part of Bruce McKay, but continuing to ignore his faults imperiled citizens and visitors.
Even the town of Franconia got into the mix, either shredding or lying about an Ethics Complaint (read it here) that Troy Watts, a well-respected local attorney had filed. Here's a Motion for Contempt of Court on that, relative to a Right-to-Know lawsuit in Grafton Superior Court, KingCast v. NH AG Kelly Ayotte et al, in which all Defendants have been ordered to pay court costs to Petitioner.
There will be a full report to the U.S. House for an investigation this summer, in the spirit of Liko Kenney.
