Couple missing for days found fatally shot near New Hampshire hiking trail

The bodies of a New Hampshire couple who went missing for days this week have been discovered on a hiking trail and their deaths have been ruled a homicide.

Stephen Reid, 67, and Djeswende Reid, 66, of Concord, NH, disappeared April 18 after walking the Broken Ground Trail, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.

Their bodies were discovered in a wooded area off the hiking trail on Thursday evening.

An autopsy by the Deputy Chief Medical Examiner confirmed that Stephen Reid and Djeswende Reid died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The investigation is ongoing.

According to NBC Boston, the couple went missing when Stephen Reid failed to show up for a scheduled event on Wednesday.

Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood told the outlet the deaths were “a tragedy”.

“This is something that came out of nowhere, and we are doing our due diligence, investing all of our resources, working with our state and local partners, to bring this case to fruition,” Osgood said, according to NBC Boston.
