N.H. police chief’s killer named at memorial event


Some New Hampshire firefighters are upset that the names of fallen firefighters read aloud at a memorial event included the man who killed Greenland’s police chief last year. Cullen Mutrie had volunteered at the Hampton Falls Department at one time. In April 2012, he shot five police officers outside his home during a drug raid, killing Chief Michael Maloney. Mutrie later killed Brittany Tibbetts, an acquaintance in the house with him, and then himself. Sunday’s service was in Rye. Seacoast fire departments honor departed firefighters each June. Mutrie’s name was read when Hampton Falls honored its members. Rye Fire Chief Skip Sullivan said it was inappropriate.
