GOFFSTOWN, NH —The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office and state police Major Crime Unit investigators are at the scene of a Rachael Circle home for a “suspicious death.”

Neighbors said state police arrived at 66 Rachael Circle Friday afternoon while the Major Crime Unit truck arrived early Saturday afternoon.

A woman resided there but residents said she mainly kept to herself.  One neighbor, who declined to give her name, said she only knew her by sight and would wave to her when she was out in her yard.

A signpost in the front yard identified the family as Miller and the town’s assessor database lists the owner as Sally A. Miller.

Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off the modular home located at Medvil Cooperative, an aged 55 and older community with about 300 homes.  Neighbors said two communities— Medford Farms and Village at Glen Falls  —combined to form the co-op.

One woman, who has lived there for 19 years, said the area is quiet and there has never been any crime, not even a burglary

“Nobody is saying anything, not even the police,” another woman said.  “It’s a shock because the place is so quiet.  It’s a big shock for everybody.”

Late Friday afternoon, Deputy Attorney General Jane E. Young, NH State Police Col. Christopher J. Wagner and Goffstown Police Chief Robert Brown sent out a joint news release that only said officials were responding to a “suspicious death” in Goffstown.
