Children of slain NH man announce reward for information 2 years after his murder
CONCORD — The family of a New Hampshire man found murdered in his Columbia home in July 2015 is offering a reward for any information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.
At a press conference outside State Police Headquarters Friday, the children of David Oldham joined members of State Police to announce the $1,000 reward.
Lt. Scott Gilbert, Commander of the N.H. State Police Major Crime Unit, said that David Oldham was found shot to death in his residence in July 2015.
"To date, an arrest has not been made, but this case is active and ongoing," Gilbert said.
Oldham's children Ashley and Brandon were in attendance, and Brandon made a passionate plea to members of the public who may have information related to his father's murder.
"My family and I have an infinite number of reasons we need this case solved," he said. "We are hoping the reward gives you 1,000 more reasons to want it solved as well."
Brandon fought back tears as he recounted the day he learned of his father's murder. He recounted his father's love for the outdoors and said that his parents moved the family to the Granite State in 1991 to get out of the city.
"We vacationed in the area many times, and he loved the idea of moving where everybody knew everybody, and everybody looked out for one another," he said. "My family, especially my sisters and I, never thought 26 years after the big move we would be standing here asking for someone to come forward with information about any death, let alone my father's."
Brandon said the reward would be available until July 2018.
Gilbert said that historically rewards could sometimes entice individuals to come forward who may not have without the incentive.
