New Hampshire investigators admit they got lucky in detecting school bus driver John Allen Wright's sex abuse of children. A woman visiting a friend near Wright's Milton home unwittingly latched onto his wireless Internet connection and found sexually graphic images.
But getting the evidence to convict him of abusing the disabled children he drove and taping the abuse on a hidden camera required nearly 100 hours of computer examination by New Hampshire's Internet Crimes Against Children unit.
In a press release from the N.H. Attorney General's office, new details surrounding the fatal police shooting of a Canterbury woman have been released. It describes the car chase that led to the shooting but not the specific circumstances that caused the state trooper to fire his weapon.
A New Hampshire high school was under lockdown after police got a report that a former student was on the grounds threatening several people with a firearm.

With any black market, it's impossible to track the full extent of its reach. One way to estimate the relative quantity of various drugs in the city is to track undercover drug buys and seizures by the police department. This system of measurement, however, is an imperfect science; large busts (see: cocaine, 2009) skew numbers for a particular year, throwing off the curve, and budgetary and tactical considerations can restrict potential drug buys.
James “Whitey” Bulger’s lawless run came to an end on Aug. 12 when a federal jury found him guilty on 31 of 32 counts including racketeering, extortion, money-laundering and participating in 11 of the 19 murders with which he was charged. Few people know his story better than Shelley Murphy. The Boston Globe reporter has covered Whitey Bulger and his criminal empire for 17 years. She and Globe columnist Kevin Cullen are authors of “Whitey Bulger: America's Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt That Brought Him to Justice”. We spoke to Shelley when the book came out about Whitey’s path from the housing projects of South Boston to career criminal…to FBI informant…to 16 years as a fugitive on the Lam. Shelley spoke with us about the mobster’s recent trial and convictions, and life after Whitey.
Recently, more New Hampshire police departments have been acquiring the controversial armored truck, called the BearCat, causing outrage among some groups concerned about civil liberties and what they see as an increasingly militarized police force.

Breaking Bad follows a high school science teacher who cooks up meth with a former student, kicking off a fast slide into murder, extortion and unsavory partnerships as a bona fide drug lord. Too crazy to be true…right? Well, maybe not. In 2011, police in California arrested Stephen Kinzey; professor by day, outlaw biker and meth distributor by night. Kinzey has been out on bail since his initial arrest. The preliminary hearing to determine whether or not the case against him is strong enough to go to trial was scheduled for June, it’s since been delayed.
