Ten years ago today, Dartmouth Professors Half and Susanne Zantop were murdered in their Etna, New Hampshire home. Two Chelsea teenagers were convicted in the deaths. Commentator Alexis Jetter was a friend of the Zantops and reflects on the anniversary.
Five years ago today Dartmouth Professors Half and Susanne Zantop were murdered in their Etna, New Hampshire home. In Chelsea and at Dartmouth College, today’s anniversary will pass quietly but not without notice.
More than a year of legal proceedings came to a swift conclusion Thursday when Robert Tulloch and James Parker were sentenced for the murders of two Dartmouth College professors. The random killings of the popular professors and the arrests of the two Chelsea, Vermont teenagers last year were a shock to the twin-state region.
Robert Tulloch plans to change his plea of innocent by reason of insanity in the murders of two Dartmouth professors. Tulloch is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the January 2001 stabbing deaths of Half and Susanne Zantop in their Hanover home. He’s expected to plead either guilty or no contest to the crimes.
