Eagle Tribune Employee Terminated after Police Seize Child Porn
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police in Salem along with officers from various seacoast law
enforcement agencies assigned to the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children task force (ICAC) executed a search warrant last week at the home of Troy Thompson, 66, of Salem. Police seized computers, hard drives, thumb drives, other related computer equipment and a handgun last Thursday. When police arrived at the home around 5:30 p.m. with
the warrant based on information obtained during a child pornography investigation Thompson became visibly upset and threatened to commit suicide according to Salem Deputy Chief of Police Shawn Patten. “While detectives searched the residence last Thursday
Thompson became very despondent and threatened to harm himself or put the detectives in a position to do so. He was put into protective custody and taken to Parkland Medical Center in Derry by Salem Fire Department for a mental evaluation by the Center For Life Management,” Deputy Chief Patten said. Later that evening Troy Thompson was released from the hospital. He has not yet been charged with a crime. “The evidence seized will be forensically looked into in the near future,” Deputy Chief Patten stated. Last Friday, Thompson was terminated from the Eagle Tribune, according to reports in the daily newspaper. Those reports state that according to the publisher, Al Getler, Thompson was immediately terminated and that the company took swift action to secure their building and employees and cooperate fully with the police. Thompson had been a systems technician for the Eagle Tribune’s information technology department for 16 years. At this time it is unknown if the warrant to search Thompson’s home has been sealed. It was unavailable to the press last week. “The investigation remains extremely active at this time and criminal charges are expected following the forensic examination of the items seized from Thompson’s home,” Deputy Chief Patten said.

On Friday, December 23, the Faro family and their staff visited the Club to hand deliver each gift. This year, the Club has made some major cutbacks and has found it difficult to replace some of the old equipment and furniture. “The Faro family exemplifies community spirit and generosity. We are so happy and thankful to be recipients of their gifts” says Denise Dolloff, Special Events Coordinator at the Boys & Girls Club of Salem.

Romney- continued from front page
With experience in business, Romney felt he could work to balance the budget as he did in Massachusetts. “I’ve got it down,” he said adding he would cut some programs back, eliminate others, and eliminate ObamaCare. “We can’t afford it, it’s bad medicine.” He said he would create an America encouraging to entrepreneurs. “I want to keep America the hope of the earth,
the strong nation it’s always been.” McCain stressed the upcoming election.
“This is a most crucial election,” he said adding national security interests and the rise of China needed to be handled. He said the president is abusing his position and that the country needed to be restored. Taxes being an issue of concern, Romney said he wanted to provide relief for middle-
income citizens. He also said he didn’t want to crush the wealthy either. “The income in America is fifty percent higher then that of an average European,” he said crediting education and attractiveness to entrepreneurs. Romney wrapped up saying, “We have to make this the best place to live.”

• At the time, October 13, 1989, was the second largest drop of the Dow in history. Nicknamed the Friday-the-13th mini-crash, these days it’s not even in the top 10. That might be the scariest fact of all. The popular Website, Snopes, states, “There are still those who still allow their trepidation over particular days or dates to prevent them from engaging in their choice of activities. We make jokes about Friday the 13 and only kiddingly instruct loved ones to exercise greater care on that day, but those who suffer from a fear of the number 13 or fear of Friday the 13th may genially feel limited by the rumored potential for all luck connected with the date.”

said. Upon obtaining a license, Millennium Gaming will purchase the facility, demolish the building, and rebuild a state of the art racino. He said the company could invest up to $500 million on the facility, and would construct a temporary building until the main casino was finished. Azarian also said Millennium Gaming would revive horse racing at the track. With Massachusetts on the verge of passing an expanded gaming bill of their own, the state representative expressed the urgency of this

bill. “The great giveaway would be for New Hampshire to do nothing,” he said. We are going to give away between $80 and $100 million of our revenue to the state of Massachusetts.” Azarian said the bill would be good for the state and the town, where it is projected to generate $10 million for the town annually plus additional property taxes from increased values. Representative Azarian said New Hampshire still has time to beat Massachusetts to the punch.
Shooting Suspect Faces More Charges

activated in the very early hours of Tuesday, January 3, as the apprehension of Ferrer was considered high-risk in light of the crimes he is accused of committing and due to the information given to police that he remained armed. Ferrer’s residence was cleared safely and he was apprehended without incident around 3 a.m. last Wednesday morning. The shooting, which happened around 10 p.m. last Monday in Saugus, occurred after an apparent drug-deal-gone-bad took place. Upon authorities in Massachusetts conducting an investigation into the shooting in Saugus, it was learned that Ferrer was also the suspect in an incident that occurred in Stoneham. No details have been revealed into as what exactly occurred in Stoneham. Steven Ferrer was also presented with a fugitive from justice
warrant by Salem police late last week on behalf of the charges against him in Massachusetts. The fugitive from justice warrant begins the extradition process to Massachusetts and also keeps him behind bars without bail.
