Dartmouth College stunned by murder of professors

HANOVER, N.H. (AP).- The humanity that
Susanne and Half Zantop brought to Dartmouth
College has made it difficult for colleagues to
accept how the couple's lives could have ended
in a double homicide.
The Zantops, both longtime professors at the
Ivy League school, were found slain in their
secluded house about three miles from campus.
"They were wonderful people. They were spe-
cial - intellectually, humanly, everything," said
Dartmouth languages instructor Roxanne
Verona.

Verona told neighbors she stumbled upon the
Zantops' bodies when she arrived at the house
for dinner Saturday evening and found the door
unlocked.
Police have since cautioned Verona not to dis-
cuss the discovery, but some details about the
slayings have seeped out.
"She went in and called out. There was no
answer," neighbor and friend Audrey McCollum
said. "She turned and saw Susanne on the floor
with blood around her."
Verona rushed to McCollum's home to call

police while McCollum's husband Robert, a doc-
tor, went over to the Zantops' home. According
to his wife, Robert McCollum said he saw
enough to know for certain the couple had been
dead for several hours and it was not a murder-
suicide.
Attorney General Philip McLaughlin on Sun-
day refused to discuss a possible motive, sus-
pects, the cause of the deaths or the condition of
the house, saying he did not want to jeopardize
the investigation.
Susanne Zantop, 55, was chairwoman of the

German Studies Department. Her 62-year-old
husband taught Earth sciences. They had taught
at Dartmouth for at least 25 years and had two
adult daughters.
Classes were held as scheduled yesterday. Col-
lege President James Wright and his wife in,. ited
students and staff to their home yesterday after-
noon, to "come together in this difficult time to
comfort one another."
About 50 faculty members, administrators and
students held a somber meeting on campus Sun-
day night and agreed to set up a support network

with a campus hot line.
Many embraced, somwere tearful, and most,
including Dean Jim Lanore, were trying to
come to terms with the wd "homicide."
"Words like this don't +me easily in a place
like this," he said. "Whate have to acknowl-
edge is that this is a niglnare, but we won't
wake up.
A picturesque town ofist under 10,000,
Hanover is lively, but consired safe. The last
murder was in 1991, when o female students
from Ethiopia were killed witan ax.
