Police Still Seek Information On 15-year-old Murder Case
Dean Webster of Rochester was found dead 15 years and two months ago. How he died is still a mystery. A Facebook page has been created in Webster's name for anyone to share information. The following appeared in the Herald of Randolph Nov. 24, 2011.
State police issued a release noting that Thursday, Nov. 17 marks the 10-year anniversary of the murder of Dean Webster of Rochester.
Webster, then 28, was found on November 17, 2001 by state police at his residence on Sky Hollow Road. The initial assessment at the scene suggested that this was a suspicious death and additional investigators were brought in from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, as well as the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Through the course of the investigation, and after the autopsy, detectives ruled the case a homicide.
State police “continue to explore any and all investigative strategies in an attempt to uncover information,” emphasized Det. Sgt. Eric Hudson, BCI investigator at the Royalton barracks.
“Vermont State Police, along with the Webster family, cannot overemphasize the importance of individuals coming forward with information,” the sergeant continued.
“The Vermont State Police is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the resolution of this case and/or information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.”
State police continue to investigate other unsolved homicides and the detectives assigned to these cases continue to pursue justice for the victims and their families.
“We encourage everyone to be a part of this process and help the detectives solve these cases,” Det. Sgt. Hudson said.
