ASHBURNHAM (CBS) – Police are searching a pond in Ashburnham in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old Westminster man in New Hampshire.

The body of Brandon Chicklis was found Friday by a jogger along Route 119 in Rindge, N.H. last week.

New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Agati told WBZ, “We’re trying to focus in more on June 23 and 24. We believe that his car did travel to Rindge, New Hampshire from the area of Westminster, Massachusetts sometime between those two dates. We’re hoping that somebody may have seen him, or may have had an interaction with Mr. Chicklis during those times.”
