Federal, state and local agencies investigating Nathan Carman case


BOSTON — Nathan Carman, the man who was rescued from a life raft after seven days on the Atlantic said suspicions about his account of the sinking of his boat are compounding his grief over the apparent drowning of his mother, Linda Carman.

The twenty-two-year-old was picked up by a passing freighter Sunday about 100 miles off the coast of Massachusetts after what he said was a week adrift that began when his aluminum fishing boat sank during a mother-and-son fishing trip.

The South Kingstown Police, of Rhode Island, in conjunction with state and federal law enforcement agencies in Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut are currently jointly investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding Linda Carman’s disappearance.
