I have been watching this story for that last 5 days and wonder what the heck is going on. There is no info, only that it is an ongoing investigation.


Authorities are continuing to search at a home in Georgetown in what they will only say is an ongoing investigation.

The FBI and Massachusetts State Police began the search Friday at the home of Peter Haskell, who died at age 85 last month.


I wonder when we are going to hear something about this. The authorities are in the house, dug up the yard and of course the house is surrounded with police tape.


Neighbors say Haskell lived alone. His next-door neighbor told The Daily News of Newburyport that investigators searched his house five years ago with K-9 units.

The home is surrounded by police tape. Investigators have dug up part of the yard and are also looking inside the house.

According to his obituary, Haskell was involved with youth sports as a coach for 67 years in Georgetown, Beverly and Bradford.

They put a tarp over something they dug up in his back yard? I wonder if he had some buried bodies.

They are looking for Russia hacking proof,

Just been sarcastic, perhaps is something that is believe to be under the ground in his back yard.

I mean why that house and why after the tenant is death.

It could be many things,

Does anybody knows anything about the background of the death man

It could be some allegations of child molestation either that or they are looking for somebody that went missing when he was coaching.

They have had the property since the 9th, as far as I can tell. This is not just a once over they are doing, they are expending some man power. I will have to keep an eye on this.

I don't know how good of a source this is but I just found an article that says they found bones in the basement.

WCVB source says 'remains' found at Georgetown home


Remains have been discovered at a Georgetown property where FBI and other law enforcement agencies have been at work since Friday, WCVB's 5 Investigates team is reporting. According to Wicked Local news partner WCVB, "a source" told 5 Investigates that bones have been found in the basement of the Chestnut Street home, but it is not yet known whether the remains are human. Investigators returned to the property on Monday with heavy equipment and were working inside the home of Peter Haskell, who died last month at the age of 85. The Essex County district attorney's office is leading the investigation, but no specific information has been released about what they are seeking. According to his obituary, Haskell was involved with youth sports as a coach for 67 years in Georgetown, Beverly and Bradford.

Oh, well I guess that the only way they found something is because somebody gave a tip that it was there.

I wonder why they are keeping this without much attention.

They don't mention that they are human, or is that implied? Thanks for the info. I hope they don't find what I am imagining they will.

Seriously? How long can it take to confirm that bones are human? Any competent ME can do this in a matter of minutes if the bones are intact. It's not rocket science.
Logic would tell us that if they are continuing to dig----it's not for pig or chicken bones....eh?

Well they probably know they're human but aren't confirming it for the public so as to avoid starting a media circus and having people interfering. The moment they say "Youth coach serial killer - buried children in basement and backyard" it'll cause a whole big s***storm. I doubt they'd swarm his property and start digging up his whole yard if all they found was a dead dog in his basement.

Good point, I'm sure they long for the days before instant news. I bet it was a lot quieter for them to do there work.

More effort into this dead man's property than was put in the San Bernardino killers place. ........

The police specialists that pulled the bones know already. They ain't going to say a word til they are given the go ahead.

Oh, sorry, I wasn't taking a hit at you---didn't mean to question you, but the ignorant statement in the story. I'm not a certified forensic anthropologist but it doesn't really take much training at all to be able to recognize and identify human vs. non-human bones if the bones are intact. Basic human anatomy classes usually cover this subject.
I could understand the authorities saying something along the lines of, "It is an on-going investigation" as a deflection to keep the info under wraps but such a statement as was contained in the story just makes them sound really, really dumb.
Yes, the bones of children aren't always as easy to identify as adults so if that's what they've found, I'm sure they would want to be absolutely certain before releasing the info. However, just refusing to say would have made far more sense than the statement they put out.

I agree with you. They have to wait. If it is a dead child the poor families who are missing children will be there, plus the freaky freaky odd ducks start to circle too.

I hope they are dog bones, but my mind is telling me 5 days is too long to pull Rover out of a hole.
