It's wasn't Kenny Murray who threw the girl in the river. it was his brother John who did it, then hung himself in jail.
Kenny hung himself in his bedroom because of a very abusive father.

Take your gripe with a c/o somewhere else and please get his name right next time. It has been 10 yrs since that horrible night apparently you must be a "BAD" kid yourself if you have dealings with rat c/o's.

I remember that, too. It happened in Dunstable, the guy was peeing in the woman's yard. When she rebuked him, he took a large rock and smashed in her head. The defense tried to say it was the chemicals that affected him and caused him to react like that. That's BS. What other people working that same profession have done something like that. Awful tragedy.

Yes it was David Garabedian who killed Eileen Muldoon. I just googled him and something came up about the case on masscases.com and its a lot of legal mumbo jumbo but it had the outline of what happened-so very sad!

Does anyone remember the crazy crazy drive-by shooting that happened at the Morey School back in like 1991/1992. TRG vs TG. My cousins lived on the street abutting the school and they said it was the loudest scariest thing they had ever heard!! I think the perpetraitors used an AK-47. I think 2 or 3 people died. It made national news!!
August 1991. No one was killed, but two kids (TG) were wounded. This was the catalyst behind LPD’s crackdown on gang activity in the city during the 1990s, the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. The TG leadership planned a massive offensive against TRG, but their rank and file could not keep their mouths shut and word reached LPD. LPD rounded up scores upon scores of TG members and arrested the leaders of Lowell’s TRG set who, at the time, were also wanted out of California. Their quick efforts prevented the city from being burned down to ashes.

Can I tell a lawrence story?

I was reading the Eagle Tribune years ago and there was an article titled "Arm robbery in Lawrence" I still have the news story somewhere. It seems that the police caught a guy holding another guy on the ground and trying to saw off his arm with a hacksaw.

Her name was Linda Holzworth. The two guys, John Murray and Roland Sylvester raped and tied her up, throwing her in the river. John Murray killed himself before trial. The trial was televised live which had the Acre on parade. From what I understand Sylvester lost an eye by having it poked out in a fight while in Walpole. He's still alive. Heres hoping he lives a hell on earth.
I was very young (6 or 7) when Linda was killed. I overhearing the details about her being hog tied and thrown in the river alive, but no one in my family will discuss it to this day. Are there any articles out there with more info? I have been looking for as long as I can remember

how about the spanish mother standing at the bus stop across from st.joseph high that was gunned down by her ex
That sounds like Annie Glenn. She was black though. She was gunned down at a school bus stop in front of her 3 kids in 1997 by her ex, Richard Kenney. I went to GLTVTS with her. She graduated in '92

I went to school with Linda and had many friends who were out with her on that awful night. It was one of the most heinous crimes ever.
She was dancing all night with John Murray, while his friend stayed out in the car, waiting for their prey. He convinced her to go out to the car with him, she acutally left her purse with her girlfriends, and said I'll be right back. She never came back. They took her to their apartment and raped her. Then they didn't want he to go to the police. So they tied her up and discussed what they were going to do with her. She was fully conscience. They taped her mouth shut and hog tied her and through her off the bridge and watched her bob up and down, until she didn't come up anymore. They then went to the club diner and ate breakfast.
John Murry killed himself but Roland Sylvester is still serving time somewhere.
All those lives lost and destroyed for a piece of ass...
Who could do such a thing a beautiful young woman...?

Linda went to the Apartment shared by Roland Sylvester and Kenneth Murry....Bad things happened there that night. Autopsy showed she was alive when thrown into the river. My tear ducts are swelling just thinking about it. Judge Robert Barton sentenced Sylvester to three consecutive life sentences to :assure the community that he never sees the light of Day again." Kenneth Murray avoided trial by hanging himself in the Cambridge jail.
His Name was John Murray. He hung himself in jail. Kenneth Murray was actually John's younger brother, who incidentally also hung himself when he was a teenager, long before this happened.

Very sad I agree.

I suggest that you read the jumbo jumbo because it sheds important information about the case. I encourage you to do your own homework on organophosphates. A substances now banned in this country. This is what I dislike so much about our country. The government hides the truth about chemicals while an individual spends the rest of his/her life behind bars. This chemical was banned in other countries prior to being banned here. If it was safe, why did we ban it?

This gentleman had a clean record up until the day of the event. He never got in trouble. He worked at the company for one month and was exposed to these chemicals. That is when the trouble started; when he was exposed to the chemicals.

There is a lot of research out there now on the dangerous products.

David came from a great family. He was a great neighbor friend to all that knew him and someone that took me fishing when I was a kid. He was 10 years older than me but someone that was trusted by everyone around him. Very sad for the two families involved.
