November 07, 2018OSSIPEE — On Wednesday, Oct. 31, Kevin Moran, age 41, of Ossipee, messaged family members and then shot and killed himself in a vehicle outside his home with a single shot.
An official statement from the Attorney General's Office, the New Hampshire State Police and Wolfeboro Police Chief Dean Rondeau released on Nov. 2, states that they are confident that Moran, based on physical evidence collected during the investigation, phone records and interviews, is guilty of the shooting deaths of Kris Dube and Kathy Moran, both age 36.
Dube was found dead of multiple gun shot wounds on Sunday evening, Oct. 21, in a single family home in Wolfeboro. Kathy Moran, Kevin's estranged wife, was hospitalized in critical condition following a single gun shot that evening in the same incident, but succumbed to her injuries days later.
According to the statement, the investigation revealed that Mr. Moran had been unhappy with his wife's recent relationship with Dube, and had threatened them both. The day after the shootings, he checked himself into a hospital and remained hospitalized until Tuesday, Oct. 30.
"During that time, Mr. Moran was aware that the homicide investigation had made significant progress and was focused on him as the suspect," reads the statement.
The deaths leave the Dube and Moran families reeling from the tragic succession of events and the Wolfeboro and Ossipee communities stunned at the violence in their midst.
