    Reward Offered For Information In Old Cases

    CONCORD, N.H. -- Three mysterious death cases in Concord may soon be given a jumpstart based on a significant cash reward being offered.


    Families Hope To Find Answers
    The murder of Judy Lord, the disappearance of Shirley Ann McBride and the suspicious death of David Braley have gone unsolved for years. Concord Regional Crimeline is hoping to change that with a $5,000 reward for information on the cases.

    "There's substantial evidence in each one of these cases, but not enough to charge anyone or move forward with a prosecution, and that's why this appeal is being made," Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Strelzin said.

    "The world is dangerous to live in not because of the people who do evil things, but because of the people who know about it but do nothing to stop it."

    video for Tippy.

    There have been conflicting statements as to if she arrived at her BF's place of business or not. Some say yes some say no.

    LE believes she never left Concord that evening. That she met foul play.

    Shirley "Tippy" McBride moved to Pittsfield from Manchester with her parents and siblings in 1983 and wasn't adjusting well, according to previous media accounts of her disappearance. She was skipping school, hitchhiking and getting into trouble. With her parents' agreement, she moved to Concord, into her stepsister's apartment at 25½ Union St.

    She had been there a few months when she left around 10:30 p.m. on July 13, 1984 to visit her 21-year-old boyfriend. He was working the night shift at Concord Litho on Old Turnpike Road, and McBride was going to see him there, Flanagan said.

    Her family never saw her again. And the police have never confirmed whether McBride made it to Concord Litho or made contact with her boyfriend.

    McBride's stepsister, Donna Whitcomb, reported McBride missing two days later. Flanagan said Whitcomb likely waited because it wasn't unusual for McBride to take off for a day or so, but when she didn't return home after two, Whitcomb became concerned...

    ...The police have never identified McBride's boyfriend but said he still lives in Concord. Flanagan said the boyfriend was and remains a suspect in the case but has denied any involvement. Flanagan said the man has not been cooperative with investigators...

    New Hampshire Cold Case File


    Charley Project

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    • Missing Since: July 13, 1984 from Concord, New Hampshire
    • Classification: Endangered Missing
    • Date Of Birth: April 5, 1969
    • Age: 15 years old
    • Height and Weight: 5'6, 110 pounds
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes. The inner edges of Shirley's upper front teeth are chipped. One of her feet turns slightly inward while she is walking. Shirley's nickname is Tippy.
    • Clothing/Jewelry Description: Lightweight summer clothes.

    Details of Disappearance
    Shirley was last seen leaving her sister's apartment on Union Street in Concord, New Hampshire at 9:30 p.m. on July 13, 1984. She was planning to visit her 21-year-old boyfriend at his place of work. She did not take any of her personal belongings or clothing with her and did not have any additional cash. It's unclear whether she ever arrived to see her boyfriend. She has never been heard from again. She had a history of leaving home overnight without telling anyone, so she wasn't reported missing for a couple of days.

    Shirley was living with her sister at the time she disappeared; she has moved out of her parents' home a few months before. She had begun to have problems in 1983 after her family moved to another town. She was often truant, was suspended from school, and became involved with drugs. Shirley regularly visited people at the state prison at the time she vanished; it is unknown whether any of the inmates are connected to her case. Despite her personal problems, her family does not believe she left of her own accord.

    There were many sightings of Shirley in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York state after her disappearance, but none of the accounts were verified and police don't believe any of them were genuine. Investigators believe Shirley met with foul play and probably never left the city of Concord. Her boyfriend is considered a possible suspect in her case. Shirley's parents had her declared legally dead in 1996, twelve years after her disappearance, and her mother died in 2003. Shirley's case remains unsolved.
