STATE OF VERMONT

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

VERMONT STATE POLICE

 

****UPDATE*****

Death Investigation - Maidstone, VT

 

Major Glenn Hall - Criminal Division Commander

 

07/27/17 - Waterbury, VT - The Vermont State Police Crime Scene Search Team concluded the documentation and processing of the crime scene on Thursday evening, 07/27/17.  A truck belonging to Jason McLain was found and processed located off the side of VT Route 102 just north of the McLain residence.   Evidence obtained will be further analyzed at the Vermont Forensic Laboratory.  Detectives with the Major Crime Unit and Bureau of Criminal Investigations continue to conduct interviews related to this investigation. 

 

Autopsies on both Jason and Molly McLain are complete.  Final official cause and manner of death will be pending completion of toxicology reports.  At this time the investigation, crime scene analysis and preliminary autopsy results are consistent with a murder/suicide.  Jason McLain was found to have a single gunshot wound to the head.  A semi-automatic handgun was found with him.  Molly McLain was found to have a gunshot wound to the torso, an incised wound to the torso and multiple incised wounds to the head and neck area.  A knife was recovered at the scene where Molly McLain’s body was found.  Investigators with the Vermont State Police would like to thank members of the New Hampshire State Police and New Hampshire Medical Examiner’s office for their assistance in this investigation. 

 

Commissioner of Public Safety Thomas D. Anderson issued the following statement on the death of Molly McClain in Maidstone, Vermont:

 

“The murder of Molly McClain by her estranged husband, Jason, is another stark and tragic reminder of the toll domestic violence takes on all Vermonters.  It touches all corners of Vermont, from our cities to rural and bucolic Maidstone, and cuts across all socioeconomic classes.  While Vermont has made great strides in combating domestic violence, Molly’s murder underscores that we must do more.   This includes reviewing our laws, including our bail statutes, to ensure that law enforcement, prosecutors, and the courts have the proper tools to fully protect victims of domestic violence.”

 

**ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE***

 

On Wednesday evening, July 26th, the Vermont State Police received numerous 911 calls related to an ongoing incident in the area of 5545 Route 102 in the town of Maidstone, VT.  One of the callers reported a male chasing a female with a knife on foot.  Another caller reported hearing a gunshot and that a neighbor reported a male, identified as Jason McLain dropped off his two children at the neighbor’s house.  The neighbor reported that McLain had blood on him and then left on foot. 

 

Law enforcement officers from multiple agencies responded to the scene.  First responding officers were from the Essex County Sheriff's Department and were joined by the Vermont State Police, U.S. Border Patrol and New Hampshire State Police.  Responding officers located Jason McLain alive but with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the residence at 5545 Route 102.  Rescue responded and transported McLain to Weeks Memorial Hospital in Lancaster, NH and he was later transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.  His condition is unknown at this time. 

 

Responding officers located the two children at the neighbor's house unharmed.  Officers continued to search for McLain's estranged wife, Molly McLain, and eventually located her injured across the road from the residence.  Molly McLain had sustained apparent serious injuries to her head and torso to include a stab wound.  Molly McLain was transported by rescue to Weeks Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced deceased.  Her body was transported to the New Hampshire Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Concord, NH for autopsy in order to determine cause and manner of death. 

 

Vermont State Police detectives from the Major Crime Unit and Bureau of Criminal Investigations responded to investigate.  A portion of VT Route 102 near the scene will remain closed until members of the Crime Scene Search Team can process the scene and collect evidence. 

 

Preliminary investigation has revealed that Molly and Jason McLain are married with two children, ages 4 and 2.  Detectives learned that on 06/16/17 Jason McLain was arrested for domestic assault on Molly McLain and interference with emergency services.  He was arraigned and released on conditions set by the court.  On 06/23/17, Jason McLain was served a Final Order For Relief From Abuse that prohibited him from having any contact with the plaintiff, Molly McLain and that she have sole custody of the residence located at 5545 Route 102.  This order is filed at the Essex County Superior Court, Family Division and can be referenced for specific stipulations included in this order. 

 

This investigation is in its early stages and is ongoing.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Major Crime Unit detectives at 802-748-3111.  No other information is available at this time.
