WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — All court documents pertaining to the Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott case are sealed, but a motion was filed to Dover District Court Wednesday to make them available to the public.
Seth Mazzaglia, 29, of Dover, was arraigned Monday on a charge of second-degree murder and was held without bail. He was arrested and charged in conjunction with Marriott being confirmed dead over the weekend.
A search is ongoing off the coast of Peirce Island in Portsmouth, where "credible information" has led investigators to believe the body of the University of New Hampshire student will be found there, according to New Hampshire attorney general Jane Young.
A probable cause hearing was scheduled for Oct. 29 at 10 a.m., but the motion to unseal court records is expected to be decided upon by Friday. The attorney general's office must respond within 10 days.
Judge Stephen Morrison disclosed at Monday's arraignment that the cause of death was suffocation or strangulation, and published reports, using anonymous sources, have alleged a sexual encounter is associated with the murder.
Mazzaglia was also identified on multiple bondage websites, under the username "darkKaiser," where he identified himself as "a master seeking a slave."
