Maybe the landlord didn't actually replace the fridge.

And the one removed was the one that had been there all along.

Harmony, hang on. Justice is coming. For those responsible. For you, the world knows your name -- we only wish we could've saved you.

That's along the lines of what I'm thinking.

Current resident "Ginger's" source of information appears to be either the maintenance man or the owner of the building. I think the building owners must have had some knowledge of Harmony's story and AM's connection in late 2021 when she was finally reported missing. It had to have been all over the local news. Whether they knew her remains were in the Union St. apt at some point, I don't know.

It certainly would not be enticing to a new tenant to know a possible murderer or possible deceased body had been stored in apt #2, so I think that would have been kept hush hush.

More like stored inside the closet.

I have no doubt that Harmony never entered that apartment alive. Court records provide that Investigators believe Harmony disappeared sometime between Nov. 28 and Dec. 10 of 2019. (KM told investigators that the day after Thanksgiving, AM told her he was taking HM to live with her mother, CS, and she never saw Harmony again. She was 5 at the time.

NH DHHS families in transition report AM/KM signed a lease agreement on or about 2/20/20, noting it was for AM/KM and their two children SM & DM. (KM gave birth to a 3rd child, CM, on 11/4/2020).

For purposes of obtaining housing assistance, AM and KM never reported Harmony as living in their household.

However, KM's theft by deception charge was the direct result of KM obtaining food benefits (SNAP Program) in Harmony's name when she was not living with AM/KM and their children.


ETA: I'm aware neighbors gave reporters conflicting information surrounding their tenancy. Believe what you want.
Where do you think they might have kept HM from late November 2019 to February 2020?
I shutter to think. Has LE been able to find and search the car they were living in?

In KM's arrest docs, she itemized her storage expense. Seems they would have also had storage when they were living in their cars for a couple of months. JMO

Harmony Montgomery’s mother tells Boston 25 News, ‘this is no longer a rescue mission’

Sorey told Boston 25 News she was told more developments could be coming from law enforcement in the coming weeks. “This is no longer a rescue mission. It’s not a missing person anymore. I know in my heart it’s going to switch from a missing person’s case to a homicide,” Sorey said. “It’s really a waiting right now at this point. I was told things are going to get really intense in the next few weeks to come. A lot is going to happen,” Sorey told Boston 25 News reporter Jason Law.

At this point, the landlord should move the tenant to a vacant/available apartment in the complex. There is no way she should have to stay in that apartment given the circumstances. Keeping it vacant for awhile and fixing it up for a rental in the future seems to me to be the most decent course of action, for the current tenant and overall.

From the link:

[...]

In the kitchenette stands a new refrigerator, replacing the previous fridge that was wrapped in black plastic and removed from the apartment Tuesday.

[...]

“That fridge is supposedly a newer fridge,” she [current tenant] said. It wasn’t here when they were here. A lot of the stuff, the maintenance man was telling me, was not here when they were here. There were three tenants before me.”

In the kitchenette, in a small front hallway, and in the bedroom, it was clear that police removed sections of the tiles and carpets.

In the bedroom, police seemed to be most interested the small closet.

“The closet was all just ripped up,” Ginger said. “They took my things out of the closet. Then they took the walls off the closet. There was a shelf and a bar, that’s all gone.”

[...]

In the bathroom, Ginger told me police cut a hole in the ceiling over the tub so they could access water pipes.

She also said door knobs and shower faucets were removed, collected and replaced.

[...]
Why would they want to "access water pipes?" That should be incoming (clean) water

Also, why would they want "door knobs?" Isn't it too late for fingerprints?

Again, why "shower faucets?" That should be incoming (clean) water.

Did they take any drains? I can see where evidence might be found in those.

If I was the landlord, I would move the tenant and leave the apartment empty for now. I wouldn't want to remodel and have LE come back and tear it out again.

IMO, this apartment building is most likely govt subsidized rentals where there's probably not a vacant unit in the building for the tenant to move to. The apartment itself, a one-bedroom, was very small for two adults and 3+children (excluding HM). In other words, if Harmony was also there, that would be 6 people sharing a one-bedroom apartment. o_O

Bring that justice on. We're ready.

I don't know about the pipes, but the doorknobs and faucets might have remains of bodily fluids or other trace evidence still remaining in the cracks, for instance if somebody moved the body and then showered.

I hate thinking that it might have been something a lot messier...

I'm sure you have this correct, makes sense and it's very sad. That said, a one bedroom apartment would seem palatial, once you're living in a sebring and Kayla was pregnant to boot. Tragic.

"The investigation to-date has narrowed the window of Harmony's disappearance to approximately November 28–December 10, 2019. According to information learned by police, Adam and Kayla Montgomery, together with their two common children and Adam's daughter Harmony, were evicted from 77 Gilford Street in Manchester on November 27, 2019. Multiple individuals have reported seeing Harmony with Adam and Kayla in the following days; however, by approximately December 6–10, 2019, Adam and Kayla apparently had only their two common children, and Harmony was no longer with them."

All of the times that the police were called over to the residence and found that they were living in squalor with no electricity for lack of payment but still able to gas up a generator. What does that tell you? And then the reports of abuse Harmony having a black eye. Man I tell ya what is this world coming too. Every case of abuse and neglect can’t be caught but the ones that are stumbled on to should be investigated and something done. But it seems that we, the cops, social services and the courts etc……have turned a blind eye. By no means am I perfect but raising children the whole family dynamic is a challenge.

Wonder who exactly applied & signed the lease? A family of 2 adults and 3 plus children would need to wait for a 3 bedroom in my area.

Now one adult and 2 children....

Is this among KM's fraud charges???

Ahhh thank you for that info.! Makes sense how they managed to conceal her (if that is in fact the case).

Conjures up some horrific images though, moving her around like that.

Hi everyone. Just hearing about the news. I haven’t read what has been posted here but I have a question. I’ve heard conflicting reports about the refrigerator. Was one brought in by LE to preserve evidence and then removed or was the refrigerator from the residence removed? TIA!

Based on my own observations via MSM and Twitter, I offer the following:

1) We saw LE taking pieces of a refrigerator (i.e., fridge door, shelves) out of the apartment, moving the pieces quickly from the building exit into the green privacy tent, erected up close to the building;

2) LE unloaded what appeared to be a new refrigerator from a panel truck, and wheeled it up to the 2nd-floor apartment;

3) LE removed a refrigerator from the 2nd-floor apartment where LE was observed outside wrapping the exterior in black cling film before applying bio-hazard stickers to the wrapped appliance before loading it inside a panel truck and hauling it away.

Please reference Twitter with video posts up-thread. And I agree that reports seem to conflict with what was observed. MOO
