New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald provided new details in the investigation into the suspicious death of Margaret “Peggy” Clarke of Newport, saying an autopsy shows she was shot to death.

The autopsy was performed Wednesday and showed the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest and the manner of death is homicide.
