Police: 3 people ransacked US businessman's grave looking for his 'real will'

COLEBROOK, N.H. - Three people, including a daughter, are accused of ransacking the grave of a U.S. businessman in search of his "real will," only to find a pack of cigarettes in his hand.

Eddie Nash died of a heart attack in 2004 at age 68. His cemetery vault in New Hampshire was found cracked last month, the casket opened and his remains searched. The body was left intact.

An arrest affidavit names Ginette Dowse, 71; Michael Day, 37; and Nash's daughter, Melanie Lynch, 52.

Lynch had made comments about her father being buried with "the real will," a police affidavit said.

Day was arrested Tuesday and jailed on charges of interference with a cemetery and criminal mischief. His lawyer didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment Thursday.

It was not immediately known whether Dowse and Lynch, who are out on bail, had lawyers.
