LANCASTER, N.H. — Four people accused of taking part in ransacking the grave of a New Hampshire businessman who died in 2004 have been indicted.
The Caledonian Record reports three are charged in Coos County Superior Court with criminal mischief, interfering with a cemetery, conspiracy, and abuse of a corpse. They are 37-year-old Michael Day, 53-year-old David Grey and 52-year-old Melanie Nash, a daughter of businessman Eddie Nash.
Also indicted is 71-year-old Ginette Dowse, who allegedly drove the others to the Colebrook Village Cemetery and picked them up.
Police said it was Melanie Nash’s belief that the “real will” was buried with her father that prompted the grave visit the night of May 11. Police said no will was found.
A phone message was left Thursday seeking comment from Nash’s lawyer.
