BERLIN — The death of George Cross has been deemed not suspicious although the N.H. Medical Examiner’s office said the manner and cause of death is undetermined at this time.

A joint Berlin and N.H. State Police press release said an autopsy performed last Friday positively identified the body found in a wooded area Thursday as that of the 65-year old Cross.

The release said a missing person’s report was filed for Cross with the Berlin police on Sept. 7, 2019. Searches of the area were undertaken by police and N.H. Fish and Game and K-9 units were used. In the months that followed, police said they followed up on a multitude of tips and his disappearance was publicized on social, state and local media. But the effort was unsuccessful.

Last Thursday shortly before 7 p.m., Berlin police received a report that human remains had been found in a wooded area off Kent Street, a hilly walk from Cross’ apartment at 424 Goebel on Berlin’s East Side. Berlin and State police recovered the body and sent it to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
