On Saturday July 29, 2017, the New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol, Hampton Fire Department and Hampton Police Department responded to a report of a body that was located in the Hampton Harbor. The Hampton Fire Department and New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol were able to recover the body of a male subject. Through the investigation, the New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol requested the assistance of the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit. The identity of the male deceased was not able to be immediately identified.

On Monday July 31, 2017 an autopsy was completed in an attempt to properly identify and to secure the manner of death for the deceased male. Subsequently, a positive identification of the unidentified male was found to be Roland Gilles Chiasson (05/27/1952), Last Known Address 1815 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood, FL 33019.

The name was not immediately released due to an attempt to locate the next of Kin for Chiasson. We have been unable to locate the next of kin for Chiasson and the manner of death is currently pending investigation.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident and/or knows Chiasson, we urge you to contact Trooper Stephen McAulay at (603) 223-8920 or
