After days of searching, the bodies of a missing Concord, New Hampshire couple were discovered shot to death on their routine remote walking trail.
As per the Attorney General’s Office, Stephen Reid and Djeswende Reid, 67 & 66, left their house for a walk at 2:22 p.m. on Monday and that is when they were last seen.
On Thursday night, the bodies of the Reids were discovered on the Broken Ground Trails. Mitchell Weinberg, the Deputy Chief Medical Examiner, confirmed on Friday that both died as a result of numerous gunshot wounds. Homicides have been determined in these shootings.
The investigation into the deaths is continuing, according to police, and they have no suspects or motives at this time.
When asked about the couple’s firearms or domestic violence history, the police replied they had none. Authorities said the pair was a frequent walker on the trails near their apartment complex, where they were discovered dead.
“Anyone who saw the Reids that Monday afternoon, anyone walking on those trails, anyone who has any information related to their disappearance or deaths are asked to contact the Concord Police Department,” Geoffrey Ward, Senior Assistant Attorney General, said at a press conference.
Those who have security cameras in the vicinity of the walking routes have also been urged to assist law police with footage.
Stephen Reid was last heard from by family members on Monday, and when he failed to show up for their weekly tennis match on Wednesday, both were reported missing.
“Concord is one of the safest cities in the safest states,” Bradley Osgood, Concord Police Chief, said in a statement.
According to the Concord Police Department, there was just one homicide in 2020 and eight overall killings from 2016 and 2020.
“We have no specific information that would lead us to believe that the public in general is at any risk,” Ward said. “That being said, be vigilant. Take your normal daily precautions. The Concord police will continue to be vigilant with patrols.” On Friday, authorities worked to clear the woods where the corpses were discovered of any evidence.
