AG office says woman and 2 children were found shot dead in NH home


A 25-year-old woman and her two sons were found shot and killed in their Northfield home, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office. Officials said Kassandra Sweeney and her two sons Benjamin Sweeney, 4, and Mason Sweeney, 1, each died of a single gunshot wound. Autopsies performed by the Chief Medical Examiner found each of their manners of death to be homicide. The bodies of Sweeney and his sons were discovered Wednesday at their home at 56 Wethersfield Drive. The investigation continued until Thursday. Sources told News 9 that Northfield and state police were called to the address just before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday after someone reported that multiple people may have been injured. When officers arrived, they found the bodies of Sweeney and her two sons. The state police major crimes unit returned to their home just before 9 a.m. Thursday. A silver Ford F-150 was taken to a flatbed truck Thursday morning, but there was no telling why it was pulled. K-9 units were also seen moving in and out of the house, and officers began searching a wooded area near the house later that day. “Investigators believe they have identified everyone involved at this point and they do not believe there is a danger to the public,” said Geoffrey Ward, senior assistant attorney general. Ward did not comment specifically on the suspects in the case. The attorney general’s office said no arrest warrant had been issued, adding that the investigation remains active. The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released as it becomes available, officials said. This is a developing story. It will be updated as new information comes in.

A silver Ford F-150 was swept away on a flatbed truck Thursday morning, but it’s unclear why it was removed.
