Missing Woman Found Dead Inside Her Unit at Hillsboro, NH, Self-Storage Facility

A woman reported missing in April was found dead last weekend inside the unit she rented at Hillsboro Mini Storage in Hillsboro, N.H. Police were called to the property on West Main Street about 3 p.m. on Saturday after the owner of the self-storage business opened the unit and found the body of Linda J. Minery, 53.

The unit was equipped with roll-up doors on either end of the space. Both were locked at the time her body was discovered, according to reports. One entry had been locked after Minery entered the unit, according to police, though officials indicated there wasn’t any suspicious activity in connection to her death. She also didn’t die as a result of being locked inside, investigators said. No cause of death was reported.

Minery left the home she shared with her mother early on April 7. Her family told police they believed she had an undiagnosed mental-health issue. Prior to her disappearance, she had displayed “extreme paranoid behavior” and resorted to primarily communicating through written notes, police said.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. This is not the way you’d like to close a missing-person case,” Hillsboro Police Lt. Derek Brown told a source.
