Jaffrey Detective Chris Anderson said Monday afternoon that the investigation began in August and that there was a Jaffrey connection in the case, although he would not comment further. Anderson said he could not speak in much detail as the affidavit for the case had been sealed. 

Anderson said the warrant was issued a couple days before Vaillancourt turned himself in.

Valliancourt was released on $25,000 personal recognizance and was given a Feb. 8 court date at the Cheshire Superior Court.
