SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

 

On 12/30/2016 at approximately 1457 hours, Vermont 911 was contacted by the victim's mother who reported finding him deceased inside a camper he owned and lived in, on property he owned on Sherman Hollow Road in Huntington, Vermont. Upon arrival, Richmond Rescue and State Police Detectives were able to determine that the victim had likely died of injuries related to a fire which broke out inside the camper on an earlier date, possibly several days prior. The fire had apparently self-extinguished before spreading to the outside and the camper. The camper remained completely intact aside from damage to the interior. State Police Arson Investigators and State Fire Marshall's responded to the scene to assist with the investigation. At this time the death does not appear suspicious. It appears that a wood stove inside the camper may have been the source of the fire. The victim's body was transported to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy.
