HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — First, police thought Nathan Carman murdered his grandfather in Windsor back in 2013. Now, News 8 has learned law enforcement from all over New England, local, state and federal, will be meeting at the Coast Guard Academy in New London to discuss Nathan Carman and his missing mother lost at sea when his boat sank 100 miles off shore.
Kathleen Mullin Esq. Director of Criminal Justice at University of St. Joseph says law enforcement will be looking at both cases from all angles.

“In terms of having no crime scene, it is devastating to an investigation. I do think our law enforcement folks, especially when they combined their powers, can really make some headway on what seems like an impossible case, but it is very difficult,” said Mullin.
When you take a look at a map it shows the scope of the investigation and the depth of law enforcement involved:
Block Canyon – 115 miles out to sea
Boston – Coast Guard Base
Point Judith, RI – Marina
Middletown, CT – Mother’s home
Windsor, CT – Grandfather’s murder
Vernon, VT – Carman’s home
We don’t know exactly which agencies will be at the meeting because many of them don’t want to comment about it, but Mullin believes it’s a pretty high-level meeting because of all the secrecy.

“I’m sure they are going to do everything they can, use every piece of technology, and collaborate with the Coast Guard and really bring in the muscle of law enforcement to try and develop a case against him that they believe they can make stick,” said Mullin.
Right now, the search warrant says they’re investigating Carman for reckless endangerment resulting in death, something he maintains was an accident.
“I would not have brought my mom out finishing with me had I thought the boat wasn’t sea worthy,” said Carman.
The high-level law enforcement meeting is expected to take place on Monday.
