Haverhill police say divers found a Glock semiautomatic pistol Wednesday in the Merrimack River. It was near the spot where the body of 30-year-old Matthew Bleistein of Lancaster, Pa., was found suspended by a rope around his waist on Saturday.
Investigators think Bleistein used with the rope and pulley to hoist himself over a wall.
Police tell The Eagle-Tribune they think he may have dropped the gun in the river at some point and later tried to retrieve it.
Bleistein was in Haverhill to visit his grandmother.
The death remains under investigation.
Holsters....... they can do many things, like holding a gun. Don't drown trying to save your firearms. They can hold their breath alot longer than you. - RRC
