N.H. investigators close case in Haverhill woman’s 1972 murder

Arlene Clevesy, 48, was found dead in Hume Brook in Newton, N.H., in the late morning of June 4, 1972.


New Hampshire authorities said Wednesday they’ve closed a 50-year-old case in the murder of a Haverhill woman and that her killer died in 2019 while serving a life sentence in Massachusetts for a separate murder

Arlene Clevesy, 48, was found dead in Hume Brook in Newton, N.H., in the late morning of June 4, 1972. Investigators say she was last seen the night prior leaving a Haverhill bar with Albert Francis Moore, Jr., who was later convicted in the murder of a Salem, Mass., lawyer about two months after Clevesy was killed.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Cold Case Unit reopened the investigation into Clevesy’s death in 2015 after her grand-niece had asked authorities for an update on the case, according to a report released by the attorney general’s office Wednesday.
