Berwick mother identifies NH standoff victim | News
BERWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The mother of 26-year old Brittany Tibbetts of Berwick says police told her Friday morning that her daughter was the woman found at Cullen Mutrie's Greenland, NH home.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's office says Mutrie shot and killed Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney, and shot 4 other officers Thursday evening. Mutrie and a woman, who the Attorney General's office still is not identifying publicly, were found dead in the home at 2 a.m. Friday.
Donna Tibbets says her daughter had been dating Mutrie and had been living at his home at 517 Post Road on and off, but that they had broken up a couple of weeks ago. She says Brittany returned to the home a few days ago because she was worried that something was very wrong with Mutrie. Tibbetts said, "She was the type of person who liked to help people. Sometimes she was attracted to people who were bad for her."
Brittany Tibbetts was the Gatorade Softball Player of the year in Maine for the 2003-2004 season. She was a pitcher for Noble High School. Her mother said she also loved to sing karaoke.
Donna Tibbetts said she waited at the middle school in Greenland for hours Thursday night after she learned there was a standoff at Mutrie's home. She said police didn't tell her that her daughter was dead until 4:30 Friday morning, and the family had not been able to see Brittany's body as of Friday evening. "It's like a nightmare," she said.
