    NH - Patric McCarthy, 10, Lincoln, 13 Oct 2003

    http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pb...NEWS/907230326

    This is an interesting case when you read this story and the evidence the family's PI presents, but the State of NH refuses to open the case.

    The comments on the memorial site and the newspaper site sound like those who know the parties involved are really suspicious.

    I couldn't find a thread in the archives... but find some beliefs chilling.

    Unhappy The strange death of Patric McCarthy, 10 years old.

    Biological parents of 10 year old Patric McCarthy are begging NH authorities to reopen the investigation into the boy's death in 2003. Patric disappeared during a camping trip with his two stepbrothers, his stepmother and his biological father. After 5 days of searching, his body was found and his death ruled as accidental from hypothermia. State Troopers who questioned a 12 year old step brother at the time had serious concerns about the boy's story-he made statements that his brother would be "hard to find" and conflicting statements as to where he had last seen him. Unknown to the troopers was the fact that 10 year old Patric had accused the same 12 year old stepbrother of making sexually aggressive statements to him-a situation that caused the stepmother to become enraged and to punish Patric at length in an attempt to get the boy to recant his accusations. Photos from the discovery of the body and the autopsy show dirt in Patric's nostrils and cuts on his gums, making it more likely the boy was smothered by having his face pushed into the dirt at the remote site. The stepmother washed all of Patrics clothing and sleeping bag from the campsite, preventing search dogs from obtaining a scent. She and the bio father have since divorced-NH officials will be deciding at the end of the month whether they will reopen the investigation.

    Cant get link to work but was this the case where the parents were also badly in debt (I believe facing a SECOND bankruptcy) & they curiously had a LIFE INSURANCE policy on Patric???
    (I believe the Father was a prison guard).
    If so I saw this on Dateline if so & agree his death was beyond hinky!!!

    No... his father owned a store and the parents were divorced.

    There are reportedly witnesses who have said that the stepbrothers told people that Patric would not be coming back from the trip.

    The father has since divorced the woman Patric's stepmother (at the time of the death) and there are people who vocally insist there was some intense bullying etc going on between the step-siblings.

    Four months before Patric McCarthy was found dead in the New Hampshire woods, the 10-year-old told his mother about a remark by his 12-year-old stepbrother during a Truth or Dare game that could be interpreted as a sexual advance, or just preteen bravado.

    No one knows if it was a real threat, but the incident strained an already bitter relationship between Patric and his stepfamily, according to Traci Langley, a friend at the time of Patric’s stepmother, Margaret McCarthy.

    http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pb...NEWS/909140302

    The New Hampshire Fish and Game official who found the body of a 10-year-old Bourne boy in the woods of New Hampshire six years ago remains convinced Patric McCarthy died of hypothermia.

    "Why in the world would New Hampshire Fish and Game try to cover up a homicide?" Capt. Kevin Jordan said in a phone interview Friday. "If it was a homicide, we would have investigated it."

    Patric's family, based on evidence gathered by private investigator Terrance O'Connell and opinions from a half-dozen experts, believes the boy was murdered and dumped in the mountain woods of Lincoln, N.H. They've pleaded with New Hampshire authorities to reopen the case.

    Attorney General Michael Delaney said Friday that Patric McCarthy’s case is one of many he is being briefed on. He said there is no new evidence or additional information

    This is so sad! What a sweet little baby. This case has be re-opened. Capecod on line has a lot of articles - some state there is a witness to his murder?? I wonder if it's the now 13 (then 7) year old step brother.

    This article states patric headed back to the condo by himself. The other articles state patric was racing his step brothers back to the condo. Odd.

    Case details lead experts to deadly conclusion

    Can six experts be wrong?
    O'Connell, working pro bono on behalf of the McCarthy family, has asked experts to look at the photographs, police reports and autopsy. Six of them have come to the same conclusion: Patric was murdered.

    But the one opinion that counts in the eyes of the New Hampshire Attorney General's office and the U.S. Attorney's office in New Hampshire is the one of Dr. Thomas Andrew, the state medical examiner, who concluded early on that Patric's death in 2003 was accidental by hypothermia. Andrew has been unbending in his analysis, despite evidence brought forward by O'Connell and the Boston office of the FBI.

    .....




    In his analysis, Dr. James Weiner, the former Cape Cod medical examiner, also concluded that Patric suffocated. Weiner has since died.

    "The missing articles of clothing are most troubling," Weiner wrote. "In cases of hypothermia, it is well known in the forensic field that just prior to collapse from the cold, the victim experiences a hot sensation and starts to remove clothing. Typically, this removed clothing is found nearby the body."

    Patric's hat, socks and coat were never found.

    Dr. Murray Hamlet, an expert in cold injury for the Army for more than 20 years, is perhaps the most adamant that Patric's death was not caused by hypothermia.

    "Not a chance in hell," Hamlet said in a recent interview. "That's what I believed from the start when I saw the pictures."

    Ann Marie Mires, a crime scene expert who used to work in the Massachusetts state medical examiner's office, called it "glaringly obvious" that Patric did not get lost. In her report, she points out that K-9s were unable to pick up the boy's scent from where he allegedly disappeared and that the remote location didn't jibe with the description of Patric as being timid and shy.
