Mischa Fay Death, Obituary – Mischa Fay, who was 17 years old at the time, was identified as the individual who had been shot by a police officer on Sunday evening thanks to the findings of an autopsy that was completed on Tuesday. The results of the autopsy permitted the Attorney General’s Office to make this determination. According to a press statement, it was determined that the individual went dead as a result of a single gunshot wound sustained to the chest, and it was determined that murder was the manner in which the individual passed away. Homicide is defined as “the killing of one person by another,” and this phrase is often used to explain what is meant by the term.
Fay’s father, Merrill Fay, is the owner of Fay’s Boat Yard in Gilford. Fay runs the family business. His son’s name is Fay. On January 1, just before 10 o’clock in the evening, officers from the Gilford Police Department responded to complaints of a resident at 5 Varney Point Road Left in Gilford who was armed with a knife. The complainants stated that the individual was acting erratically and was threatening other residents. This ultimately resulted in Mischa Fay losing her life. According to the press release, two law enforcement officials fired their weapons at Fay; the first officer used a taser, while the second officer used a revolver. It was confirmed that Fay had passed away once he arrived at Concord Hospital—Laconia after being transported there in an ambulance.
The identities of the police officers who were involved in the shooting have been kept secret pending “the conclusion of official interview,” as stated by the Attorney General’s Office. These officers have been placed on administrative leave. The investigation is being headed up by the state’s major crimes branch, which is currently in the process of going through the material that was acquired by body cameras during the incident in question. The claims state that both of the police officers had cameras concealed within their clothes. Outside of the residence where the inquiry was taking place on Monday morning, the state’s mobile crime lab started gathering evidence so that they could continue with the investigation.
The call that came into the Gilford police department at 9:52 p.m. was entered into the system as a “mental person,” which indicates that there was an urgent crisis regarding mental health. People who are experiencing a mental health crisis make up the majority of those who contact emergency services for police departments on both a national and local level. A report that was published in The Concord Monitor stated that more than sixty percent of the people who were killed by police in New Hampshire over the course of the preceding ten years suffered from a mental illness. This information was gleaned from an investigation that was conducted and the results of which were published in The Concord Monitor.
