Cold Case Unit

The Cold Case Unit was organized in the Fall of 2009 to combine the experience of the Attorney General's Office, the Major Crime Unit, and a city detective. The Unit is staffed with a prosecutor and three detectives who will focus on reviewing unsolved homicides, unresolved suspicious deaths, and missing person cases in which foul play is suspected in the person's disappearance.

David Braley
Suspicious Death
Year: 1989/1990
Town: Concord, NH

David Braley, a 21-year-old Belmont, NH resident, was last seen alive at the Take 5 Music Hall Night Club in Concord, NH on November 10, 1989. His body was pulled from the Merrimack River in Manchester, NH, on March 18, 1990. Police believe that David was involved in an altercation behind the nightclub that November evening and was badly beaten. Police believe that David's body was later dumped into the river. Although this case was not ruled a homicide by the state medical examiner, the circumstances surrounding David's death are suspicious and would suggest foul play was involved.
