1. 
I WOULD LIKE TO FIRST ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOOD
WORK
OF
LAWENFORCEMENT IN THIS CASE. THE FBI, THE VERMONT STATE POLICE AND THEESSEX POLICE DEPARTMENT SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR THEIR WORK
IN
THISCASE.
2. 
THE DISAPPEARANCE OF BILL AND LORRAINE CURRlER HAS TOUCHED THEHEARTS OF MANY
IN
THIS COMMUNITY. THE CURRIERS WERE ACTIVE MEMBERSOF OUR
COMMuNITY
AND THEY WILL BE MISSED BY MANY.3. THEIR MURDERS WERE A RANDOM ACT
OF
VIOLENCE THAT OCCURRED
IN
OURCOMMUNITY.
4.
THERE
IS
NOTHING THE CURRIERS DID
IN
THEIR PERSONAL LIVES THATCONTRIBUTED TO THEIR DEATHS. TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, THERE
IS
NO PRIOR
CO:t\TNECTION
BETWEEN THE CURRlERS AND THE INDIVIDUAL
IN
CUSTODY.5 . INVESTIGATION BEGAN ON
6/
9111
WHEN FAMIL Y MEMBERS
OF
'BILL ANDLORRAINE CURRlER ASKED THE ESSEX POLICE DEPT, TO CHECK ON BILL ANDLORRAINE AS NEITHER HAD APPEARED FOR WORK THAT DAY, FAMILY MEMBERSINDICA TED THEY HAD TRIED TO CALL THE HOUSE AND RECEIVED NO ANSWERAND \\lERE ALSO UNABLE TO LEAVE A MESSAGE.
6. 
EPD WENT
TO
THEIR HOME, LOCATED AT 8 COLBERT STREET
IN
ESSEX, ANDFOUND THAT ALL OF THE DOORS TO THE RESIDENCE WERE LOCKED. UPONLOOKING INTO A WINDOW IN THE GARAGE, AN OFFICER
WAS
ABLE TO SEE THATTHERE WAS
NO
CAR THERE AND
TIM
T THE GLASS PORTION OF THE DOORLEADING FROM THE GARAGE TO THE"KlTCHEN WAS SHATTERED.7. AT THAT POINT OTHER OFFICERS WERE ASKED TO RESPOND TO THE RESIDENCE.LT. BEAULIEU OF THE EPD ARRIVED AND ENTERED THE GARAGE BY RAISING THELOWER PORTION OF A GARAGE WINDOW AND SLIPPING OUT THE SCREEN.OFFICERS NOTED THAT THE GLASS IN THE DOOR APPEARED TO HAVE BEENBROKEN BY AN OBJECT FROM THE DIRECTION OF THE GARAGE GOING INTO THEHOUSE.
8.
UPON INSPECTING THE HOME, THE CURRIERS WERE NOT FOUND, NOR WERETHERE ANY SIGNS OF STRUGGLE. OFFICERS OBSERVED THAT THERE WERE BIRDCAGES IN ONE OF THE ROOMS THAT HAD BEEN COVERED, WHICH WAS THECURRlERS' PRACTICE TO DO AT NIGHT.
9. 
OFFICERS FURTHER OBSERVED THAT LORRAINE'S CARDIAC MEDICATIONS ANDBILL'S DIABETES MEDICATIONS WERE STILL IN THE RESIDENCE. OFFICERS ALSO
 
SAW THAT LORRAINE'S
GLASSES AND CONTACT LENSES, WHICH
SHE
NEEDS
TOBEABLE TO
DRIVE,
WERE
IN
THE
RESIDENCE.
10.BILL'S
WALLET,
INCLUDING HIS IDENTIFICATION,
WERE
FOUND IN
THE
RESIDENCE.
HOWEVER,
NEITHER
LORRAINE'S
PURSE
NOR
HER
WALLET
WERELOCATED
IN
THE
HOME.
11.
ALSO
MISSING FROM THE HOME
WAS LORRAJNE'S GUN, DESCRIBED AS A
RUGERSNUB-NOSED
.38
CALIBER,
THAT
SHE KEPT
FOR
PROTECTION WHEN SHE
WENT TOTHEIR CAMP
IN NORTON, VT.
12.BOTH
FAMILY
MEMBERS AND POLICE OFFICERS
OBSERVED
THAT A PHONE LINE
RUNNING
INTO
THE
SOUTH SIDE OF
THE CURRIER HOME
HAD BEEN SEVERED.
13.FAMILY
MEMBERS TOLD
POLICE
THAT
BILL AND
LORRAINE
WERE
"HOMEBODIES"
WTTH
NO
CHILDREN
AND
ARE NOT
IN THE
BEST
OF HEALTH. F AMIL Y MEMBERS
FURTHER
REP
OR
TED
THAT
BILL AND LORRAINE
HAD NO
ENEMIES AND
THEREWERE
NO
INTERNAL
FAMILY
DISPUTES.
THE FAMILY
ALSO TOLD
POLICE
THATBILLANDLORRAINEDO NOT TRA
VEL
OFTEN
AND,
WHEN
THEY DO, ONE
WTLL
LEAVE
AT A
TIME
SO
THAT THE OTHER
CAN
STAY HOME
AND
TAKE
CARE OF
THEIR
PETS.
14.UPON CHECKING WITH THE BANK
WITH WHICH
THE
CURRIERS
HELD
THEIR
ACCOUNTS,
IT WAS LEARNED
THAT
THERE
HAD BEENNO
ACTIVITY ON
THEIRACCOUNTS
SINCE
JUNE 7,2011.
THESE ACCOUNTS
HAVE BEEN
MONITORED
BY
LA
W
ENFORCEMENT
OFFICERS SINCE
THEDAY
OF BILL AND
LORRAINE'SDISAPPEARANCE AND NO
ACTIVITY HAS
EVER BEEN
REPORTED.
1S.IN
APRIL, 2012,
POLICE
RECEIVED AN INVESTIGATIVE LEAD IN
THE
CASE OF
THE
CURRIERS.
SINCE RECEIVING THIS INVESTIGATIVE LEAD, SUBSTANTIAL ASPECTS
OF THE
LEAD
HAVE
BEEN
CORROBORATED
BY BOTH
STATE AND
FEDERAL LAWENFORCEMENT
OFFICIALS.
16.
THE
EVIDENCE
NOW
ESTABLISHES THAT,
ON THE NIGHT
OF JUNE 8 -
JUNE
9, 2011,
BILL AND LORRAINE CURRIER WERE ABDUCTED FROM THEIR HOME
AND
MURDERED BY THE PERSON
WHO HAD
ABDUCTED
THEM.
17. 
THIS
CONFIRMATION TODAY THAT THE
CURRIERS
WERE MURDERED
IS
A
DECLARATION THAT
HOPEFULLY WILL
SERVE AT LEAST TWO
PURPOSES. ONE,
THAT SOMEONE
IN
CUSTODY
WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE
FOR THEIR
MURDERS.
SECONDL
Y,
THE
PROCESS OF GRIEVjJ\JG CAN CONTINUE TO
THE
NEXT
STAGE
FORALL THOSE THAT KNEWAND
LOVED BILL AND LORRAINE CURRlER.2 
