HUDON, N.H. (AP) — The parents of a Hudson man who died of a suspected drug overdose have been arrested on charges of withholding and tampering with evidence in the investigation of their son’s death.
WMUR-TV reports that police say they were investigating Bryan Rando’s death for three months before they found out that his parents, Robert and Pauline Rando, were withholding information that led to the source of the drugs.
The Randos have been charged with falsifying physical evidence and obstructing government administration.
Robert Rando said Saturday that he withheld his son’s cell phone to protect him and his wife from drug dealers who might be identified by police from the phone. He says he and his wife tried to help their son and should not be charged.
