NH police: 3 ransacked grave looking for will

Posted: Updated:

It's a mystery that's rocked Colebrook, New Hampshire, for weeks.

Investigators say the grave and coffin of longtime businessman Eddie Nash was dug up and smashed open in May, a decade after he died. It's a crime that shocked his daughter, Susie Nash.

"I saw it for myself where the cement was broke up; that took a lot of work," Nash said.

Now police say it was a family job. Nash's other daughter, Melanie Lynch, and her alleged accomplice Michael Day, have both been charged with the crime.

"I didn't think she could do something like that, but I guess she could," Nash said.

Police say Lynch hoped she would find a copy of her dad's will buried with his remains. Nash believes her estranged sister's alleged actions were fueled by a family feud over money.

"They always had this thing in the back of their mind that there was a will and I buried it with my father, probably thought it was there and it wasn't," she said.

Nash says her father's estate was settled years ago, now she's focused on working through the emotions that come along with knowing her own sister could have rifled through her dad's remains.

"I have been all of them for the last four weeks, mad, angry, disappointed," Nash said.

A third person, Ginette Dowse, is charged with conspiracy in the case for allegedly being the getaway driver. Nash says she spent nearly $6,000 to re-bury her father.
