The story on Westford Street initially got my attention because I've written about that area many times. It turns out, from what I'm hearing, that the shooting last night had nothing to do with the apartments at 75 Westford St., but it's still an address that might be worth a mention.

First there was Aug. 12, 2006. That's when 21-year-old man was shot to death at a birthday part just down the road on Royal Street. I covered the shooting. It was late at night, there were still birthday streamers hanging up around the Royal Street property, and a lot of people at the scene.
The following afternoon, Billeoum Phan, at just 14-years-old, was arrested for that gang-related murder. He was the youngest accused killer Lowell had seen in years, and he was arrested at 75 Westford St. I snapped a picture of him as he was driven from the scene in the back of Sgt. Joe Murray's cruiser.
Phan was convicted of voluntary manslaughter earlier this year. He'll be in prison until he is 21-years-old, and after that he'll have a 5-year suspended sentence hanging over him to keep him in line.

Now lets skip ahead to April 7, 2007, just a few minutes before midnight.
Vuthavy Phay was playing cards on the second floor of 168 Fletcher St., when a bullet came into the apartment and hit him in the back of the head.
Phay's 16th birthday was April 8, and he lived long enough to spend about four hours of it in the hospital before he died. I covered that murder too. I went to the scene that night. I remember being struck that Phay was probably unconscious for all four of the hours of his birthday that he managed to survive.
David Phin, 22, and his nephew Roth em, 21, were soon charged with Phay's murder. At the time, they both lived at 75 Westford St.
Last month, two more men were charged in that murder. Savong Moun, 23, and Pahath Pheap, 20. All are still awaiting trial.

Last week when the weather got nice, I noticed some kids hanging out on the porch at 75 Westford St. It's a white house across from Armory Park, the porch I'm talking about is set back down a short driveway. It's right next to Tech Heng Auto Body.

I can't remember whether it was late Tuesday or Wednesday night that I was listening to police radio and heard Sgt. David Peaslee, who commands the city's gang unit, call for another gang unit car to come meet him at 75 Westford St.
Peaslee didn't say why.

So then we have Friday night. A little before midnight, shots are fired on Westford Street, and a 17-year-old boy is shot in the adomen between 75 Westford St., and Tech Heng Auto Body. It sounds like he'll survive, but police haven't said much more at this point.
One thing they have said is that this latest shooting doesn't appear to be related to the residents of 75 Westford St. It's nice to hear that, for once.

It's funny how some of these addresses just keep on popping up, though.

According to city GIS listings, 75 Westford St., is owned by the 71/75 Westford St., Realty Trust. It's co-owner is trustee Markos G. Evangelos, of 3 Brentwood Drive, Peabody. The trust bought the property in 2005 for $470,000.

<quoted text>Donald Beaudry was murdered at the Colonial then. He was walking through the bar when he bumped into a pool cue being held by the murderer. Donald said "Excuse me, sorry..." as any polite person would do. But the Killer didn't care for his apology. He stabbed Donald to death. Some two weeks later, the killer was fished out of the Merrimack river up by the Tyngsboro Bridge. With his shirt pulled up over his head. Donald left behing two very angry, vengeful brothers. Roland and Emiol. End of story.

The story I got from my brother who was incarcerated and worked in the prison kitchen with Louis was that Louis was an old, lonely guy who befriended a young pretty girl who was basically "lost in life". He gave her everything and anything she wanted and he helped her out alot, so he wanted to take it to the next level-but she didn't want anything to do with him "like that". So when she was going to call it quits to the "friendship", he lost it-and when he realized what he had done, he tried to commit suicide.Yeah...good 'ole Laconia..and when he got out, he and Telly ruled the "round table" in the corner and Telly made sure Louie didn't get himself into trouble...lol

A few years back they found skeletal remains by the Chelmsford Car Wash, which reopened an old missing persons report. Poor girl was murdered and her killer had moved down south, when they were able to ID her, the guy killed himself. There's a detailed website about the case, http://home.att.net/~nlaunt/

There was a young woman named Catherine Rice I think, She was found dead in her bathtub by her landlady in the Upper Highlands (Upham St maybe??) Her two sons were missing and later found dead the their fathers footlocker at otis air base. Turned out he was living a double life married living in a boston suburb, and a girlfriend with two kids in Lowell.
That was such a tragedy. I lived right down the street from were that happened. My children were the same age as her two sons. Although I did not know Catherine or her family I was very upset by this tragedy.

I used to hang out with him (Another very strange dude). I can't remember his last name or the poor woman that got murdered.
Joe Hoffman is his name. My boyfriend back in the 80's used to be friends with Joe and we hung out with him at his parents house. And witnessed first hand Joe's temper. I always knew he wasn't all there.I truly feel bad for the woman he murdered and her family. I am so sorry for there loss.

Two men have been charged in the murder-rape of a 29-year-old woman who was found strangled in her home Friday morning.

Police said one of the men is the victim's former live-in boyfriend.

Oscar Hoffman and Norman Bettencourt, both 20-year-old Lowell residents, were arrested Friday and charged with murder, armed robbery and aggravated rape, said Lowell Police Inspector David Durkin. Both were being held without bail pending arraignment in Lowell District Court tomorrow morning, Durkin said.

Linda Rossi Montgrain, a mother of two young boys, was found by a friend at 10 ...
