Police Asking for Help Identifying Possible NH Drowning Victim
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday on a man found floating in the Contoocook River on Sunday.
New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol was called shortly before 5 p.m. after a man was discovered face-down in the river near a condominium complex in Penacook. The man’s name and exactly how he ended up in the water is still being investigated. The neighborhood is off of Washington Street near the west side of Concord.
He is described as middle-aged, white and wearing red and black swim trunks with a gray sleeveless T-shirt. The man has tattoos — an American flag on his right bicep and a blue tattoo on his left bicep, possibly with names under it. He was wearing a red bracelet with the words, “In Memory of Papa Weed.”
If anyone has any information that could help police in their investigation are encouraged to contact NHSP Marine Patrol officer Scott McLain at (603) 227-2118.
