Law enforcement officers raided the house of Cullen Mutrie for a drug investigation. This person shot five police officials at his home. One of them, the Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney, was killed; 4 police officers were wounded. The next morning this killer and a woman were found dead.
It is suggested that Cullen Mutrie was applying steroids at the time of the shootout. Jane Young, the New Hampshire Associate Attorney General, stated that toxicology reports were waiting in order to find out whether metabolites of steroids were in the body of this person.
Police officials reported that Cullen Mutrie had been a very muscular man. He worked at Genetix Fitness in Seabrook. It was noted that he was 6 feet 3 inches tall. Cullen Mutrie weighed 275 pounds. During a raid which was in July 2010 law enforcement officials discovered anabolic steroids at his home. The police officer Wayne Young found them in a coffee table. He said that he had observed a plastic bag with several vials. A vial was with powder; others contained solution. According to the labels, they were steroids.
The New Hampshire State Crime Lab analyzed the vials. It was reported that the vials contained such preparations, as Trenbolone Acetate, Sustanon 250, Boldenone Undecylenate and Nandrolone Decanoate.
John Miller, a professor of kinesiology, was asked whether a connection between the crime and aggressiveness due to anabolic steroids could present. The specialist confirmed that it was plausible. But according to him, it is impossible to conclude that there was a direct connection between usage of anabolic steroids and the crime.
John Miller suggested that steroids which were on the black market were provided from legal pharmaceutical companies. But he has been mistaken because the majority of steroids which are offered for sales on the black market are manufactured in underground labs. It is even suggested that Cullen Mutrie produced steroids.
Since a link between criminal actions and steroid use is a controversial issue, not only police officials but also correspondents investigate the case connected with this shootout.
