Deputy Gross mysteriously disappeared when he went to Barre to collect $250 from a man found liable in a civil matter. The next day the deputies car was found in a wooded area east of Barre. The man who Deputy Gross was supposed to see was picked up for questioning by police in Concord, New Hampshire. While he was being transported to the police department he suddenly drew a gun and shot and killed himself. Deputy Gross' body was found two days later in an abandoned shack in East Brookfield, 12 miles from Barre. He had been shot to death.
