If you read my comment you'd see I didn't say the murder of the 7-11 clerk was drug related. I don't know if the thugs were on drugs or selling them or what. The subject was about that area of the city being notorious for killings and being a bad place to be. So drop the attitude.
Tude? Get facts straight and dont insult whole area if u dont live there. Stop being snotty

I do have my facts straight. You do have an attitude problem, not I. Who's being snotty, I'm not at all. Your reply had a bad attitude that needed adjustment and obviously still does, and I pointed that out to you. I'm originally from Lowell, then Chelmsford. I go through that area every time I have appointments in Lowell, so I don't have to live in that specific spot to know what I'm talking about.Plus you're not there now, it says you're in NY. So, take care and have a nice day!:-)

I don't know why it says Middletown, CT under my user name. I've never even been there. It should say, Chelmsford, MA

Wow, this site is so mixed up, first it says I'm in Concord, MA, then in CT. That's all incorrect. I was in Chelmsford, MA, I recently moved to Westford. Plus it should say animal_lover03, not just plain animal lover. Hopefully, it'll get straightened out soon! LOL.

I am from Billerica and have wished many days her family could be blessed with closure. So sad. Did they ever find her car? I think not. How people can go through life and not come forward is a scary thing. I was a bartender back then and have always wonderd about some who were at that party.
So, you think someone at that party could have been involved with her disappearance and most likely, her death?

Scott Murray was one of the perpetrators ... and I forget the other guy's name; it was so long ago (I was about 14). I'm not sure it was Chevy's at the time, though; Dillon's Raft I believe the name of the bar was -- it became Chevy's after Dillon's was closed down subsequent to the woman's murder. She was tied and thrown in the river to drown, wasn't she? Good Lord!

I'm confused. Who is Debbie? I thought the topic was about a little girls' named Erica and Janice? I was actually very close to Erica's sister and from Princeton Village 1976 through 1987. If there is any help I can give, I am very familiar with the brutal murder of Erica, but not so much as with Janice. I am curious as to who George is?

About the George Edgerly case when he murdered his wife, Elizabeth. First her torso was found in the river,then eventually arms and legs. But if memory serves me they never found her head. He passed a lie detector test and they weren't able to prove he did it so he got away with it. Because of double jeopardy there was nothing the authorities could do after it was a known fact that he admitted to others that he did it, but he never would say what he did to her head. Well, many years later when he was a mechanic at a Lowell car dealership(either Halliseys or Bournivals) he murdered a GM insurance investigator who came to the dealership to investigate bogus claims for repairs,etc. that Edgerly was involved in. There was an eyewitness that Edgerly had kidnapped just before the witness was to testify at the murder trial who managed to get away and did testify against Edgerly which the sob wasn't going to get away with this time. He was sent to prison. Then ironically in the late '70's Edgerly's daughter from his marriage to murdered wife whose name was also Elizabeth after her murdered mother was also murdered
by her much older boyfriend Tavoularis (co-owner of that scum bucket bar the "Laconia" in Lowell). She was just 25 at the time and she was cheating on him with a guy closer to her age. Tavoularis had bought her a house,etc. and she had this guy there in the home cheating on Tavoulares. He caught them, but luckily the young guy got out of there with his life. Elizabeth wasn't so lucky. Tavoulares murdered her and sexually mutilated her body. I heard he went to the same prison Edgerly was in. I think Tavoulares eventually was released after serving some time. I think Edgerly died in prison but I'm not sure. Does anyone remember any of this and if so what is going on with Tavoulares and G.Edgerly? Dead or what? If they are I hope they're both in hell now and at each other's throats.
g. edgerly worked at al luneau chrevrolet. i remember my father talking about him murdering his wife

I don't believe it was a christmas party, I believe she was killed in April... she was out with some high school friends, I was supposed to go out with them. she had been dancing with him all night, left her pocket book with the girls at her table to go out and smoke a joint with John Murray... Roland Sylvester was in the car waiting they had it planned... I saw her mother just passed away, now she can be with her beautiful daughter again.. her murder has haunted me to this very day... i never let any friends go out to a car or leave with a stranger if we were out at a club.
