Robert and Constance Dion killed in New Hampshire blast
The bodies of two people found after an explosion in a New Hampshire home earlier this week have been identified.
Robert and Constance Dion, 71 and 67, of Manchester, were killed in the blast on Mooresville Road just after 2:30 p.m. Monday. The deputy chief medical examiner has further concluded that the manner of the two victims’ deaths was homicide, officials said Thursday.
Matthew T. Dion, 38, the couple’s son, who was living at the home at the time, was wanted in connection with the explosion.
Dion is described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighs about 200 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. Officials said he may be driving a white 2009 Nissan Altima with New Hampshire registration 3410587.
Relatives said the couple was supposed to be away on a vacation at the time of the blast.
Investigators said the explosion at the home on was not caused by natural gas because there is no gas line to the home.
Anyone with information about Dion or the Nissan Altima should contact the Manchester Police Department at 603-668-8711.
