Adam Montgomery, Father Of Harmony, Found Guilty Of Murder

( – A New Hampshire man has been convicted of the 2019 murder of his young daughter. Harmony Montgomery’s mother reported her missing in 2021, when she’d already been dead for two years. Her body has never been found.

Five-year-old Harmony Montgomery didn’t live in the best of environments. Her parents were separated, and Harmony lived with her violent father and his new wife in a car. On December 7, 2019, she wet the bed, and Adam Montgomery beat her viciously, then took drugs and ate fast food as she lay dying in the back seat. Then he stuffed her corpse in a cooler and covered it with lime. Eventually, he rented a U-Haul and dumped her body somewhere near Boston; despite repeated searches, her remains are still lost.

It’s unclear why Montgomery had custody of Harmony in the first place. When he was given custody, he’d recently been released from prison after shooting a drug dealer, and he didn’t have a stable home. His chaotic lifestyle seems to have made it easy for him to conceal his daughter’s death. Her mother, Crystal Sorey, didn’t realize anything was wrong until she found Harmony had never been enrolled in a school, and it was November 2021 before she was declared missing.

Finally, in June 2022, Montgomery’s second wife, Kayla, told investigators what had happened in exchange for a plea deal. On February 22, after deliberating for two days, a jury found Montgomery guilty of Harmony’s second-degree murder. As he’s already serving at least 32.5 years in prison on firearms charges for a separate offense, he’s likely to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

The decision to give Montgomery custody of his daughter has been slammed by a Massachusetts regulatory agency. It found that state welfare organizations had let Harmony down by letting her live with a violent career criminal. It was a mistake that cost the little girl her life.
