In a surprising turn of events, Nathan Carman, the Vermont man indicted for murdering his mother during a 2016 fishing expedition, died under uncertain circumstances while awaiting trial. His death, confirmed by federal authorities, brought an abrupt halt to a trial mired in a web of deception, murder, and inheritance fraud.
Nathan Carman : Awaiting Justice Amid Allegations of Murder and Deceit
Nathan Carman, a 29-year-old Vernon resident, was due to stand trial this October. The charge sheet was laden with claims of deceit, first-degree murder, and fraud.
Authorities accused Carman of orchestrating his mother, Linda Carman’s death on the high seas, with the aim of inheriting millions.
The sudden nature of Carman’s death added a layer of complexity to the already perplexing case. Martin Minnella, one of Carman’s defense attorneys, said the news came to him via the U.S.
Marshals Service on Thursday. He had been in regular contact with Carman, having spoken to him just the previous day, expressing confidence in their readiness for the impending trial.
