Authorities have identified a 57-year-old Northborough, Mass., woman found dead along with a 34-year-old Portland, Ore., man off the Cascade Trail in Franconia Notch State Park, May 1.
The woman, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General\'s Office and New Hampshire State Police, is said to be Madeline Gutkowski.
Gutkowski was found dead with Festass Dalecourt, also known as Stephen Chadsey, in a wooded area of the Cascade Trail.
Assistant Attorney General Jeff Strelzin has said the couple committed suicide, and it was not a case of a murder-suicide.
They were found about 300 feet off the trail near the Basin by a hiker walking in the woods. Gutkowski and Dalecourt\'s bodies had been out in the woods awhile before being found, Strelzin has said.
Authorities have not revealed how they know the couple committed suicide, though they have said the deaths were not caused by guns.
Now, authorities are asking for the public\'s help in locating any of Gutkowski\'s relatives.
People with any information as to the name or location of Gutkowski\'s next-of-kin, they are asked to contact Sgt. Charles West of the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit at (603) 271-2663.
Gutkowski was born in Illinois in September 1946, according to a press release from Attorney General Peter Heed\'s office. She also was known as Dalaina T. Garren.
She was last known to have been living in Northborough, Mass.
Along with the bodies, police also found a car with out-of-state plates, believed to belong to the couple, in a parking area near the Basin.
Along with the homicide division of the Attorney General\'s Office, Sgt. Charles West from State Police Troop F has been involved in the investigation as has Lincoln Police Chief Ted Smith.
Strelzin and West could not be reached for comment Friday.
