suspect-sketch

Authorities are looking for a suspect in what appears to be a random act of violence in Caso Maine. At 6 o’clock Sunday night, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call at a residence on Timbuktu Drive in Casco. Investigators learned that an unknown male had arrived at the home and knocked on the door. When the male resident opened the door, the suspect proceeded to violently hit the man with his fist, rendering him nearly unconscious. The victim’s girlfriend was present at the time and was not injured. He was transported to Maine Medical Center by Casco Fire/EMS where he remains hospitalized with significant facial and shoulder injuries. The Victims say they didn’t know the suspect who is described as a white male, 25-35years old, 6,2” to 6,4” tall, short brown hair with a neatly trimmed beard and mustache. The suspect was wearing a long, black trench coat at the time of the assault. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Sheriff’s Office Detectives division at 207-774-1444 ext 2173.

It is looking like the case against alleged kidnapper Nathaniel Kibby might be consolidated to a single court but there remain arguments over pieces of evidence. The Prosecution asked once again that the over 200 indictments in both Carroll and Coos county be consolidated and moved to Belknap County under a single Judge. The defense and Judge both agreed, however a decision on that wasn’t made today. Certain pieces of discovery raised issue today, because the state has it under a protective order. Requesting that Kibby not maintain copies of it without having a person in his presence for reasons to be specified to a judge later. The Judge said the trial is on track to start next year, but when is presenting an issue since the Defense wants it in April and the State wishes to have it in January in order to resolve the case sooner for the alleged victim.

Teen Lost For Hours On Attitash Mountain Safe and Sound

by Christian Mower on February 20, 2015

A Massachusetts Teen who was lost for several hours while Skiing on Attitash Mountain is safe. Yesterday morning around 10 am while out skiing with his family 17-year-old Jared DiNatale of Rowley, Massachusetts, ventured off of the Far Out trail and got lost. At around 2:30 he was able to send a text to his family before losing cell service telling them he was lost. His parents then immediately notified the Attitatsh Ski patrol who searched for the teen with no success. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the Mountain Rescue Service and members of the Air Force Pararescue service responded then joined the search for him. DiNatale was found around 9:30 yesterday evening about ¾ of a mile uphill from the trail in the Stoney Brook drainage between Attitash Mountain and Bear Peak. Though he was suffering long-term exposure to the cold he was uninjured and reunited with family. President of Wildcat and Attitash Mountain Resort said “In cooperation with the New Hampshire Fish & Game, U.S. Forest Service, and Mountain Rescue Service, I can say that the Attitash Ski Patrol, Mountain Operations, and others here at Attitash provided every resource possible in the search and rescue effort and all of us are very happy that this young man was found safe and sound.” The NH Fish and Game wanted to remind people participating in outdoor activates to dress appropriately, carry necessary equipment, and remain consistent to a plan.
