A 29-year-old man from Vermont named Nathan Carman died in federal custody on June 15, 2023. He was accused of k*illing his mother and grandfather so that he could get their multimillion-dollar estate.
They were k*illed, and he was charged with mur*der, fraud, and other cri*mes. He pleaded not gui*lty and said he was innocent. He was in jail waiting to be tried when he was found not breathing in his cell and was pronounced de*ad.
Daniel Nathan Carman was born in Connecticut in 1994. He is the only child of Clark and Linda Carman. His maternal grandfather, John Chakalos, was a real estate mogul who owned homes in several states, so he grew up in a wealthy family. He was very close to his grandfather and thought of him as his best friend and teacher.
As a child, Nathan Carman was told he had Asperger’s syndrome, which is a type of autism. He had problems with his emotions and relationships, and it was hard for him to fit in at school.
He also had a rough time with his mother, whom he often fought with and said was to blame for all of his problems. After one semester, he quit college because he was interested in guns, boats, and self-defense.
Nathan Carman moved to Vermont in 2011 and bought a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere with money from his grandfather. He worked as a computer tech and stayed to himself. He also got a lot of money from his grandfather’s trust fund after he died in 2013.
How He Was Accused of K*illing His Grandfather
Nathan Carman was linked to the murd*er of John Chakalos, Nathan’s grandfather. John Chakalos was found de*ad in his home in Windsor, Connecticut, on December 20, 2013, having been shot. At the time of his de*ath, Chakalos was 87 years old and worth around $40 million.
The police say that Nathan Carman was the last person to see his grandfather alive on the night he was ki*lled.
He told the police that they ate dinner together and then drove back to Vermont around 8:30 p.m. The police, on the other hand, found problems with his statements and alibis. They also found out that he had bought a gun with the same caliber as the one used in the mur*der and thrown away the GPS device from his car.
The police also found out that Nathan Carman didn’t like how his grandfather planned to divide his estate among his four daughters, one of whom was Nathan’s mother. Nathan Carman is said to have tried to change his grandfather’s will in order to get more money from him.
Nathan Carman was thought to be the main suspect in the mur*der of his grandfather, but the police never charged him because they didn’t have enough proof. They also thought he might have had someone else with him who helped him do the cri*me.
Ki*lling His Mother
Lynn Carman, Nathan’s mother, went missing at sea while on a fishing trip with him on September 18, 2016. He was charged with ki*lling her. She lived in Middletown, Connecticut, and was 54 years old. She was also a beneficiary of the estate her father left her.
Nathan Carman says that he and his mother ran away from Ram Point Marina in Rhode Island on his boat, the Chicken Pox, to go fishing for the night. He said the boat sank quickly after he heard a strange noise coming from the engine. He got out on a life raft but couldn’t find his mother.
He said he was lost for eight days until a passing freighter found him about 100 miles off the coast of Massachusetts.
But the police didn’t believe Nathan Carman’s story and thought he might have sabotaged the boat to make it sink.
The police found proof that he had unauthorized repairs made to the boat before the trip and had taken away an emergency beacon from it. They also asked him why, after the boat sank, he didn’t call for help or look for his mother.
The police also thought Nathan Carman had a reason to k*ill his mother because she was the one who would be inheriting millions of dollars from his grandfather’s estate. They also said that he had a history of hitting her and being angry with her.
Nathan Carman was arrested in May 2022 and charged with mur*der, fraud, and other c*rimes related to the de*ath of his mother. He said he wasn’t gu*ilty and had nothing to do with her disappearance. He was kept in federal prison until he died.
He Died in Custody
Nathan Carman died in federal prison on June 15, 2023, while he was waiting to be tried for ki*lling his mother. Around 9:30 a.m., he was found in his cell at the Cheshire County Jail in Keene, New Hampshire, not moving. After about 40 minutes, he was pronounced de*ad. The police said it wasn’t suspicious and had nothing to do with Covid-19, but they didn’t say what ki*lled him.
When Nathan Carman died, the case against him ended and all charges were dropped. His lawyers said he had always said he was innocent and was looking forward to proving it in court.
There are also a lot of unanswered questions about Nathan Carman’s role in the de*aths of his grandfather and mother. His family had sued him to stop him from inheriting their money, and they were upset that they would not get justice or closure for their losses.
