Gov. Richard Snelling, who returned for a fifth term in January with hopes of getting Vermont's finances in order, was found dead Wednesday. Snelling was found by the side of his swimming pool at his home in Shelburne, a town on Lake Champlain about 30 miles west of Montpelier, the capital. He was 64.
