Nathaniel Kibby Pleads Guilty

by Chris on May 27, 2016

Gorham Man Sentenced to 45-90 Years

 

LACONIA, N.H. (AP) —  A New Hampshire man who pleaded guilty to kidnapping a 14-year-old girl and raping her repeatedly during nine months of captivity has been sentenced to 45 to 90 years in prison.

AP PhotoThirty-five-year-old Nathaniel Kibby pleaded guilty Thursday to seven counts including kidnapping, aggravated felonious sex assault and criminal threatening.

He had initially pleaded not guilty and had been scheduled to go on trial in June on nearly 200 felony counts related to the girl’s October 2013 kidnapping. But he changed his plea Thursday and apologized for the decisions he made.

Prosecutors say Kibby didn’t know the girl but gave her a ride from school because her feet were blistered. They say he pulled a gun on her and kidnapped her.

The girl was in court and thanked Kibby for eventually letting her go.

Conway Valley Inn Assault Now A Homicide Investigation

Conway, NH – The Assault case regarding a man at the Conway Valley Inn has been upped to a homicide investigation. On May 15, 2016, police responded to the Inn in Conway, where they discovered 64-year-old David “Bruce” Goodwin severely injured.

On the evening of May 17, 2016, Mr. Goodwin succumbed to his injuries and died. An autopsy was subsequently performed by the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office. Although the final results of the autopsy are still pending, the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that the manner of Mr. Goodwin’s death was homicide.

A homicide is different than a Murder in that Homicide is the killing of one person by another. Murder is a form of criminal homicide, where the perpetrator intended to kill the other person.

Authorities have not said whether or not they have a suspect and have remained very quiet about the ongoing investigation.

Ghost of Paul Revere – Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine’s holler-folk band. With a sound built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, their songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere.

They use a masterful combination of melody and energy, somewhere between folk and foot-stomping bluegrass, that has already given Ghost shows legendary status. Fans have traveled vast distances from the most remote corners of the country to catch the band as they make an increasingly bigger mark on the scene.
