Murdered N.H. EMT nominated for Carnegie Hero Award

Paul Frontiero, 27, was stabbed trying to save two women being attacked; the prestigious award is given to those who risk their own lives for another person

Nashua Patch

NASHUA, N.H. — In his own quiet way, Paul Frontiero III lived the life of a hero every day, serving the public as an EMT, and volunteering his services as a medical missionary in the Dominican Republic.

Two years after his violent stabbing death just outside his Spruce Street home, Frontiero's name has been added to a short list of nominees for the Carnegie Hero Fund Medal, a prestigious award given out to those "who knowingly risk his or her own life to an extraordinary degree while saving or attempting to save the life of another person."

Frontiero, 27, was killed after suffering a stab wound to the heart in the act of trying to save two women who were beingattacked by Matthew Packer. Packer was sentenced earlier this year to serve 52 years in prison for the October 2011 murder.
