Three men are facing murder charges after police say they have recovered the bodies of David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell.

 

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The bodies of the three men who have been missing since Aug. 28 were found on Saturday and police have arrested and charged three others with their murder.

District Attorney David Capeless said Adam Lee Hall, 34, of Pittsfield, David Chalue, 44, of Springfield and 31-year-old Caivus Veiovis, also known as Roy Gutfinski, of Pittsfield each have been charged with three counts of murder, three counts of kidnapping and three counts of intimidation of a witness.

 

They will be arraigned in Central Berkshire District Court on Monday.

District Attorney David Capeless is asking anybody with information about the three men that were charged with murder to contact the Pittsfield Police Department.

Police have been searching for the three men — David Glasser, 44, Edward Frampton, 58, and Robert Chadwell, 47 — since the Sunday that Tropical Storm Irene blew through the Berkshires. Glasser was a witness in a pending case against Hall when the three went missing from their Linden Street apartment.

"Based on the information that we have at this point, I am confident that our worst fears for David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell have been realized," Capeless said at a press conference on Sunday. "This had to do with Glasser being a witness in a pending criminal case. Unfortunately we believe that Frampton and Chadwell were in the wrong place at the wrong time."

Police have obtained search warrants for five locations and two motor vehicles, Capeless said. The bodies were being recovered from a burial site within Berkshire County — Capeless would not reveal the exact location — on Sunday and will be sent to the chief medical examiner in Boston for autopsy.

Capeless is also asking the public to contact the Pittsfield Police Department with any information about the three men charged with the murders while police continue to dig for evidence.

"I say to the general public that you, too, can achieve justice. If you have any information about these three men who have been charged in connection with this crimes, please come forward," Capeless said.

Because of the ongoing investigation, Capeless was tight-lipped about the circumstances around the crimes. Law enforcement has been searching for the men for the last 12 days, including in the Pittsfield State Forest last week.

Glasser was scheduled to testify against Hall, a Hells Angel member, on kidnapping, assault, intimidation, extortion, and cocaine distribution charges this month.

That case started with a dispute between Hall and Glasser. Hall accused Glasser of stealing an automobile part from him in 2009 and then allegedly beat Glasser with a baseball bat. Later, Hall was accused of trying to frame Glasser for a robbery to prevent him from testifying against him. The case against Hall was postponed after Glasser went missing.

"We intend to prosecute it and I expect that we will join these cases involving the murder, kidnapping and intimidation along with all the other charges at are pending," Capeless said.

Shortly after the Glasser went missing, Hall was arrested and charged with extortion and child pornography charges and held on $1 million bail.

Veiovis and Chalue are not believed to be members of the Hells Angels, Capeless said.
