Nathan Carman charged with 2016 ‘high seas murder’ of mother

Federal prosecutors have charged Nathan Carman, 28, of Vernon, Vermont, with the 2016 murder of his mother on the high seas as well as related fraud to obtain family and insurance funds. Carman has previously been at the center of an estate dispute that contributed to the 2016 sinking of his 31ft fishing boat, The Chicken Pox. The vessel sank during a fishing trip in 2016, leaving Carman’s mother, Linda Carman, missing and presumed dead. According to federal prosecutors in Vermont, according to the unsealed indictment, in 2013 Nathan Carman shot and killed his grandfather John Chakalos at his home in Windsor, Connecticut. The unsealed indictment says that in 2016 he killed his mother Linda Carman and sank his boat while on a fishing trip off Rhode Island. The federal indictment alleges the two murders were part of a scheme to obtain money and property from the estate of John Chakalos and related family trusts. Chakalos, a wealthy real estate developer, was gunned down in 2013 as part of a scheme to inherit $7 million Chakalos left to Linda Carman. Carman told the Coast Guard in 2016 that when the boat quickly filled with water, he swam to the life raft and called his mother but never saw her again. He was found floating in the raft off Martha’s Vineyard by the crew of a freighter eight days after the boat went missing. In 2019, a U.S. District Judge found, among other things, that shortly before the fishing trip, Carman made improper repairs to the boat. Witnesses said he removed two stabilizing trim tabs from the stern, near the ship’s waterline, leaving holes which he attempted to seal with an epoxy stick. Relatives have previously accused Carman of killing his mother and grandfather. Federal authorities say that if convicted of murder on the high seas, Carman faces mandatory life imprisonment. The fraud charges each carry a penalty of up to 30 years in prison.
