Woonsocket Call - - Region/obituaries -

CON­CORD, N.H. (AP) — A Ver­mont man de­nied in court pa­pers Wed­nes­day al­le­ga­tions that he killed his mil­lion­aire grand­fa­ther in 2013 and claims he doesn't know the where­abouts of his mother who dis­ap­peared af­ter a boat they were on sank off Rhode Is­land.

Nathan Car­man has been called a sus­pect in the shooting death of 87-year-old real es­tate de­vel­oper John Chaka­los in Con­necti­cut. No one's been ar­rested.

He has also been ques­tioned about the day his boat sank with his mother, Linda Car­man, on it. She's pre­sumed dead. He said he doesn't know if any­one has seen his mother since their fish­ing trip in 2016.

In July, the three sis­ters of Linda Car­man filed a law­suit in New Hamp­shire ac­cus­ing Nathan Car­man of killing Chaka­los and pos­si­bly his mother. They've asked a judge to block Nathan Car­man from col­lect­ing money from his grand­fa­ther's es­tate. Chaka­los left more than $29 mil­lion to his four daugh­ters, in­clud­ing Linda Car­man, and $7 mil­lion of that money could go to Nathan Car­man.

The sis­ters' at­tor­ney, Dan Small, has said all the ev­i­dence points to Nathan Car­man as the killer. If the fam­ily wins the law­suit, Small has said any money that would have gone to Car­man would go to in­ves­ti­gate the death of John Chaka­los and Linda Car­man. Nathan Car­man on Wed­nes­day moved to dis­miss the law­suit, say­ing Chaka­los wasn't a res­i­dent of New Hamp­shire at the time of his death.

The fam­ily on Wed­nes­day in­sisted in a state­ment that Chaka­los was a "long time res­i­dent of Ch­ester­field, New Hamp­shire, and a well­known, ac­tive mem­ber of the com­mu­nity."
