MARBLEHEAD — The following is a statement from Marblehead Police Chief Dennis King:
“As the Marblehead community mourns the tragic death of James Galante with his family and friends, I would like to assure residents that our department’s investigation into this matter remains active and ongoing.
The members of the Marblehead Police Detective Division, with assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, are continuing their investigation to determine what factors may have led to this crash. Please understand that an investigation like this takes time and it may be weeks before a final report is complete.
Anyone who may have information about this incident is asked to please contact the Marblehead Police Department at 781-631-1212 and ask for Sgt. Brady or Detective Gay.
On a personal note, I have a daughter who is a senior in high school. My wife and I are heartbroken for the Galante Family as we reflect and head into the end of her high school years, just as they should be doing. I can only offer my family’s heartfelt condolences, and assurances that we will conduct a complete and thorough investigation.”
