2 bodies found in Vermont were missing Massachusetts men and were shot in the head, police say

Eden, Vt. — Autopsies have confirmed that two bodies found in a wooded area off a rural road in northern Vermont are those of two missing Massachusetts men who were shot to death, Vermont State Police said Thursday.

Police found the bodies of 21-year-olds Jahim Solomon, of Pittsfield, and Eric White, of Chicopee, on Wednesday in a wooded area in Eden. Autopsies performed Thursday determined that Solomon died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head and White died of a single gunshot wound to the head, police said.

State police said they continue to follow up on leads in the case and said tips from the public are an important part of the investigation. Maj. Dan Trudeau, commander of the Vermont State Police’s criminal division, said Wednesday that police have a number of suspects and people of interest in mind.

Police haven’t released any information about what the two were doing in Vermont or possible motives for their murders, reports CBS Burlington, Vt. affiliate WCAX-TV.  

But state police said Saturday that Solomon and White disappeared under “suspicious circumstances” while traveling through several communities.

They were reported missing on Oct. 15 after falling out of touch with their families for several days, authorities said. They’d previously been in Burlington, Lowell, Morrisville and Stowe, officials said.

Police said when the bodies were discovered that they believed it was an isolated incident and the public wasn’t in danger, according to WCAX.
