CONCORD, N.H. -- The wife of a New Hampshire scientist murdered in Connecticut four years ago is "heartsick" that authorities dropped charges against the two suspects.
Authorities in Connecticut dropped charges against the men charged with killing Eugene Mallove in 2004, saying there was not enough evidence.
Mallove was discovered beaten to death on the lawn of his Norwich, Conn., home. Mallove lived in Pembroke, N.H. He'd returned to clean the house, which was being used as a rental property.
Mallove's widow, Joanne, told the Concord Monitor her family is "heartsick" over the news. She said police had assured her they had the killers, and now the family wonders if it wasn't Gary McAvoy and Joseph Reilly, who could it have been?
Police in Norwich say the investigation continues, but did not comment on specifics.

Are police, prosecutors, attorneys, and judges too busy bopping prostitutes, breaking laws, and profiteering to care about justice and the betterment of society? A post about the Connecticut State Police brutality and misconduct [click here], might make you think otherwise.
