A Vermont man denied in court papers Wednesday allegations that he killed his millionaire grandfather in 2013 and claims he doesn’t know the whereabouts of his mother who disappeared after a boat they were on sank off Rhode Island. Nathan Carman has been called a suspect in the shooting death of 87-year-old real estate developer John Chakalos in ConnecticutNo one’s been arrested. He has also been questioned about the day his boat sank with his mother, Linda Carman, on itShe’s presumed deadHe said he doesn’t know if anyone has seen his mother since their fishing trip in 2016. In July, the three sisters of Linda Carman filed a lawsuit in New Hampshire accusing Nathan Carman of killing Chakalos and possibly his motherThey’ve asked a judge to block Nathan Carman from collecting money from his grandfather’s estateChakalos left more than $29 million to his four daughters, including Linda Carman, and $7 million of that money could go to Nathan Carman. The sisters’ attorney, Dan Small, has said all the evidence points to Nathan Carman as the killerIf the family wins the lawsuit, Small has said any money that would have gone to Carman would go to investigate the death of John Chakalos and Linda Carman. Nathan Carman on Wednesday moved to dismiss the lawsuit, saying Chakalos wasn’t a resident of New Hampshire at the time of his death. The family on Wednesday insisted in a statement that Chakalos was a “long time resident of Chesterfield, New Hampshire, and a well-known, active member of the community.” “The groundless claims and denials contained in Nathan Carman’s response filing do not reflect reality, and we are confident the legal process will recognize this,” Small said. In the sisters’ lawsuit, lawyers for the family said that no has seen Linda Carman since she boarded the boat, the Chicken Pox, with Nathan CarmanIn their motion to dismiss, lawyers for Nathan Carman said he “lacks sufficient information to either admit or deny” that he was the last to see his mother. Nathan Carman has acknowledged that he patched some holes on the 31-foot-long boat with marine putty before going fishing with his mother but insisted the boat was seaworthyInsurance companies claimed in court earlier this year that “incomplete, improper, and faulty repairs” were made the day before the boat sank. A federal magistrate judge on Friday ordered Nathan Carman to turn over the information about a Sig Sauer .308-caliber semi-automatic rifle he ownedThat weapon is now missing, according to documents filed in a different lawsuit in New HampshireThe documents say the same caliber weapon was used to kill Carman’s grandfather in Connecticut in 2013. The judge rejected requests to get information about other guns Carman may have owned.
