State police won't reopen an investigation into the 1993 death of the wife of a former minister, who authorities say killed his daughter in a murder-suicide in Maine last month.
Investigators say Daniel Randall on Dec. 8 drove to his estranged family's the home in Hebron, Maine, and killed his daughter, 27-year-old Claire Randall, before turning the gun on himself.
The Portland Press Herald reports state public safety officials said Wednesday night they reviewed investigative records and concluded Greta Randall, Daniel's first wife, died accidentally when she fell off a cliff at Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth. The 32-year-old woman was six months pregnant.
