Crime Wire Investigates! Suspicious Deaths of William Walker and Wendy Towle

Crime Wire Investigates!

Tuesday, August 16, 9pm ET

Listen LIVE:

The Crime Wire Team will present two cases of unsolved suspicious deaths. Our guests will be William Walker’s grand daughter, Heather Reeves, and a family friend of Wendy Towle, Karen Beaudin, and Wendy’s sister, Beth Clark.

Wendy Towle

Wendy Towle was found dead in her Stratham NH home on August 22, 2009. Her death was initially classified as suspicious and sent to the state Attorney General’s office for review and later ruled an accidental overdose. The case was then sent back to the Stratham Police Department and Rockingham County Attorney’s office for further review. The death certificate states the cause of death as a result of “administered non-prescribed drugs.” It has been nearly two years since Wendy died and her family still seeks answers about her death. Wendy was 38 years old.

The family wants people to know that she had a serious, LONG TERM relationship with Dr. Cornelius “Neil” Sullivan who apparently had other girl friends and a wife. He and Wendy had a safety deposit box that he emptied out after her death. He went in the house after her death and collected “personal belongings”. He had a needle and partial vial of Succyinocholine in the trunk of his car; he also lied to the police. Dr. Sullivan was a surgeon and at the time of Wendy’s death was in school to become an anesthesiologist, however after her death he quit school.

Shortly before Wendy’s murder, her sister Beth went to visit her. Beth noticed that Neil never called during her visit, this was very unusual, and that his clothes were missing from the closet.

William Walker

On August 2, 2008 William, age 69, was killed by a pipe bomb in his own shop at his home where he sustained very violent injuries to his neck and chest. The police thought it was a horrible accident. Hours later, a neighbor passing by told us of the explosion heard throughout the neighborhood.

Later that evening there was another pipe bombing in Moses Lake that killed another man. It has been three years since he was killed and we still to this day have no answers as to what happened. The family of William A Walker would like to know what happened to their Father, Grandfather and friend. We want to know who could have done something this violent to a very loving, and caring man who would do anything for anyone who would give you the shirt off his own back if you had asked for it. He was always there to lend a helping hand for anyone even if it was a complete stranger. William is greatly missed every single day by everyone and anyone that ever knew him and they want answers to who did this. Anyone with and information should contact the Grant county Sherriff’s office at (509)762-1160.

    The difference between a “drug user” and a “junkie” ?

    A “drug user” will steal your money, go get their fix (get high/low whatever) and worry about their next “fix” later.
    A “junkie” will steal your money, go get their fix and then come and try to help you find your wallet.

    It’s time that someone start asking a few direct questions to the eldest sister of Wendy as there appears to be somewhat of an “enabler” history as well as a 30 year history of alcohol and (Prescription Drug Abuse) which, from what another comment made, leads one to have to consider that her (possible) Bipolar Disorder (or personality) might explain why she is so adamently trying to find someone to “blame” for her sister’s untimely death and just won’t accept the possibility that it could have been anything more than an accidental overdose.

    Coincidentally, she is (or was) still married to a “Chip Carrying” member of AA that still has an occasional alcoholic beverage from time to time, but still goes to AA Meetings to make sure that everyone knows that he doesn’t have a problem with alcohol anymore. His wife, however, still has a long history with alcohol abuse as well as taking, acquiring, asking for and even stealing prescription drugs from her former employers as well as having her sister Wendy “provide” her with an occasional sedative or two when she was having a really bad day dealing with her emotions, which could, did and have been the reason she has been physically and verbally abusive to those around her and has done this for over 30 years and is also a major part of the reason she LOST CUSTODY OF HER CHILD a few years ago (about a year before her sister Wendy passed away). Her son, an exemplary student, absolutely thrived once he was outside of the “Control” that his mother Beth forced upon him at all times (he’s now working on his second Engineering Degree, became an Eagle Scout and made the National Honors Society AFTER moving away from and having virtually no contact with his mother).

    The following was posted on Topix

    What is even more “bizarre” is that there was a REPORT MADE back in early January (or very late December – after Christmas) of a complaint trying to be filed asking for an investigation into Ms. Wendy Towle having “access” to and “giving out” prescription medication to others. Specifically, there was a complaint filed with the Office of Judge Cyr in Woodsville, NH requesting that this matter be looked into as Wendy had been reported for providing some sort of a prescription drug(s) to her sister (who was going through a LOT of stress at the time due to just losing custody of her son to her ex-husband) and when Wendy’s sister (the day after Christmas) showed up to visit her son – she was literally “stoned” half-out of her mind and could barely speak/function and could not hold a conversation for about 2hrs (until whatever drug started to wear off).

    Attorney Pat Hayes in Lebanon, NH was ALSO told all about this and was provided a Motion to File in the Courts (Drug Test Request for the Sister)- but REFUSED to carry the Motion forward as requested by the ex-husband of Wendy’s sister (the father of child that her sister had just lost custody of).

    Maybe, just maybe had Judge Cyr, Atty Hayes or the Dept of Child Services in New Hampshire and Connecticut HAD LISTENED to the complaint being made (of her sister being “stoned”) then MAYBE Wendy would have been investigated and would NOT have continued to have “access” to the medications/prescriptions that she overdosed on?

    Nobody would listen – nobody cared – now she’s dead from an overdose and nobody wants to admit that they had been TOLD way before this ever happened.

    There is also evidence pointing that Beth has “stolen” (refused to return) well over $10k in Savings Bonds to her own son that made that money while working on the farm for Doug Erb for a number of years.

    Not to mention that Beth owes almost $100k in Child Support that she either refused to pay (never did and never has paid a penny for child support of her son and was Court Ordered “Overpaid” excess child support when she did previously have custody and before her son was old enough to just “Leave” without her permission.

    The Exeter, NH (Stratham) Police (Detective) was also told about all of this way back right after it first happened (Wendy’s passing) and maybe they did investigate the information given them, but by then it was just too late to do any good.

    Maybe if someone started investigating Beth, then Beth might realize that her own (drug seeking) and (alcoholic) and (physically abusive) behavior and personality was very likely a huge influence on her younger sister Wendy and had anyone done anything about Beth, well, then Wendy would have been investigated and may have not, on that night, been in posession of any vials of drugs taken from the hospital that she worked at.

    Maybe, just maybe, right?
