A recent police affidavit reveals that a New Hampshire man, Adam Montgomery, who stands accused of murdering his 5-year-old daughter, Harmony Montgomery, allegedly spent several months concealing and transporting her body before disposing of it, Your Content has learned.
Montgomery, 33, had previously pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder, falsifying physical evidence, and abuse of a corpse.
The tragic incident occurred in Manchester, and the young girl was reported missing in November 2021, almost two years after her presumed death. Despite ongoing efforts, Harmony’s remains have yet to be discovered.
Initially, prosecutors sought to keep details of the case confidential. However, a judge made the affidavit available in response to a public.
The document heavily relies on interviews with Kayla Montgomery, Adam Montgomery’s estranged wife, who cooperated with prosecutors after reaching a plea agreement in an unrelated perjury case.
Kayla Montgomery informed the police that Harmony was killed by Adam Montgomery on December 7, 2019, while the family was living in their car.
Kayla, Harmony’s stepmother, recounted that Adam became infuriated by the child’s bathroom accidents in the vehicle, leading him to repeatedly punch her in the face and head. Allegedly, Adam expressed remorse, stating, “I think I really hurt her this time. I think I did something.”
The tragic revelation of Harmony’s death came to light hours later when their car broke down.
At that point, Adam placed her lifeless body into a duffel bag, as disclosed by Kayla Montgomery.
Over the following three months, investigators claim that Adam Montgomery continuously moved Harmony’s body from one location to another.
Alleged temporary storage sites included a friend’s car trunk, a cooler in his mother-in-law’s apartment building hallway, a ceiling vent at a homeless shelter, and an apartment freezer.
Shockingly, the remains were even kept in a tote bag from a hospital maternity ward.
Kayla Montgomery confessed that she placed the bag between her own young children in a stroller and brought it to her husband’s workplace.
An employee at the now-closed restaurant admitted to seeing it but never questioned Montgomery, assuming it contained his own children’s belongings.
Toll data indicates that the truck crossed the Tobin Bridge in Boston multiple times, but the affidavit lacks further information regarding the exact location where Harmony’s body was disposed.
In April, law enforcement conducted a search in a marshy area in Revere, Massachusetts.
As of now, Adam Montgomery’s attorney has not responded to requests for comment.
In November, Kayla Montgomery received a prison sentence of at least 18 months after pleading guilty to lying to a grand jury about her employment at a doughnut shop on the day she claimed to have last seen Harmony.
As part of her plea deal, Kayla agreed to assist prosecutors, resulting in dropped charges related to welfare benefit fraud and possession of stolen firearms.
Earlier this month, Adam Montgomery was found guilty of six felony weapons charges by a Hillsborough County jury in a separate case, potentially leading to a prison term of at least two decades, according to New York Post.
