    New Hampshire congressional delegation members have urged the federal government to investigate the death of a man who died in Saudi Arabia.

    The Telegraph of Nashua reports the body of 50-year-old Christopher Cramer of Milford was found in January beneath the third-floor balcony of his hotel.

    Kollsman Inc. of Merrimack sent Cramer to work with the Saudis on thermal optical devices, which are part of the country's missile systems.

    Just before he died, Cramer sent a text message to his roommate in Milford saying he thought something bad was going to happen to him and asked him to contact the state department.

    The death was first reported as a suicide. A retired medical examiner later ruled his death a homicide and suggested he was severely beaten before he fell or was pushed off the balcony.
