Lawsuit alleges Nathan Carman killed grandfather, possibly mother

  • Nathan Carman home in Vernon Vermont

Linda is presumed dead.

Carman, who lives in Vernon, Vt., has not faced any charges and has denied killing his mother or grandfather. Nathan and Linda Carman were first reported missing September 18, 2016, after they failed to return from a fishing trip off the Rhode Island coast in his boat named "Chicken Pox".

The daughters of a wealthy man who was murdered in CT in 2013 are accusing their nephew of committing the bloody crime and later leaving his mother behind on a sinking boat, putting him in line to receive millions of dollars.

Linda's three sisters have now filed a lawsuit in New Hampshire's Cheshire County, asking a judge to block Nathan from collecting money from his grandfather's estate, which was divided among his four daughters.

But his aunts believe he carried out "this heinous act out of malice and greed" to get control of a portion of his grandfather's estate, along with another bank account with about $400,000 in it, the relatives said in court documents filed Monday. Since the law has a provision to stop this unjust inheritance, they have filed a so-called "slayer action' in New Hampshire State Court to block Nathan from collecting money from his murdered grandfather's estate".

Of the full estate, $4 million is set to go into a separate trust, the "Rita B. Chakalos New Hampshire Personal Residence Trust", according to John Chakalos' will, included as an exhibit accompanying the sisters' petition.

"Nathan also deliberately and intentionally accelerated the flow of assets from his grandfather's estate to his own benefit, and prevented his grandfather from changing his estate plan, had he desired to do so".

The Chakalos sisters did not undertake this action lightly.

The sisters don't need to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt because the proceedings will take place in civil court.

The sales growth rate for a stock is a measure of how the stock's sales per share (SPS) has grown over a specific period of time. A rating of less than 2 means buy, "hold" within the 3 range, "sell" within the 4 range, and "strong sell" within the 5 range.

In addition, a win for the sisters would not necessarily mean criminal liability for Carman. The legal action is known as a "slayer" petition.

In February, Nathan Carman told ABC's "20/20" that he's misunderstood and an easy target for police because he suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a condition on the autism spectrum.

His aunts "cannot stand idle while their father's killer, and perhaps their sister's killer also, profits from his actions", said attorney Dan Small, a partner at Holland & Knight, who filed the suit on behalf of the sisters. Less than three years later one of those sisters, Linda Carman, disappeared at sea under highly suspicious circumstances. "This is not about money, it is about justice". The details and evidence in the death of John and the disappearance of Linda all point to Nathan as the prime suspect. In December, a swarm of officials, including at least one Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, descended on an abandoned Spofford Lake property owned by Chakalos.

A CT search warrant from 2014 revealed that Windsor, Conn., police submitted an arrest warrant for Carman in 2014 for the death of his grandfather, the Courant reported.

The FBI and police from several New England states have been investigating the murder of John Chakalos and the disappearance of Linda Carman. Carman, of Vernon, Vermont, was a suspect in the death of Chakalos, who was 87, but no one was arrested.

They have obtained search warrants for Nathan Carman's vehicle, cellphone and Vermont home.

The pair were in this boat when it sank off the coast of Rhode Island.

After his rescue, Carman told the Courant that he and his grandfather had a close relationship and criticized the newspaper for reporting that he was once a suspect in the shooting death. "I was like a son to him; he was like a father to me".
