Death of Patric McCarthy

New Hampshire Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that he has completed his review of the circumstances surrounding the death of Patric McCarthy. Patric was reported missing on October 13, 2003, while vacationing with his family in Lincoln, New Hampshire. Patric was found deceased on October 17, 2003, after an extensive search.

Attorney General Delaney has concluded that based on the facts, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that a prosecution against any person is warranted. While the Attorney General has made this determination based on the evidence known at this time, Attorney General Delaney has stated that, "If additional, credible evidence is found which establishes a reasonable likelihood that a crime was committed, the Attorney General's office will certainly conduct a further review of this matter." Until such time that additional, credible evidence is found, the Attorney General's office will be taking no further action in regard to this matter.
