I am best friends with tabitha potter's family. Tabitha was raped and murder when she was 13 back in 1999. I know her family still hurts now because of it. I wish i could've gotten to know her because I know her mother now and she is a beautiful person...I bet Tabitha would have been a wonderful person just like her.

Does anyone know the name of the three men invloved with this murder? I went to school with one of them in Tewksbury and it is driving me crazy that I can not remember his name. He was either from Tewksbury or living in a foster home there.
yes i remember that well...i dont know the other two but the one from tewksbury was steve ward...and he did live in a foster home...i lived across the street from the foster home...steve was a couple years older than me and was always nice to me...he used to walk with me to the school bus stop...guess i didnt know him well enough...i was shocked when i found out...he was a teenager when that happened and if remember correctly he was tripping out on acid at the time of the murder

RIP JOHN.

one time when I was around six yrs old I got mad and ran away from my mother down the path to the mahoneys. The tewks police started a manhunt and Mrs.mahoney called my mother and said that I was at the house. They brought me back to my house and my mother was relieved! Really nice people.

I stated upthread that I heard the Mahoney murders were not intentional, but a result of panic. That must have been the spin put on it by the defense.

I have since read more about the "scum" behind those murders, and they were far from panicked or inexperienced. Those s-heads started on an assault and robbery spree in New Hampshire during the summer of 1975.

They expected the Mahoneys to be home and even had one of the s-heads ask to use the phone in order to assess how much of a fight Dr. Mahoney might put up. They came armed with guns. They enjoyed the killing so much they had to do it again a few weeks later in Greenfield, MA. Robert Wilson slit a guy's throat to the bone; Michael Renz shot the other guy in the back of the head while he laid tied up on the floor.

Today, Robert Wilson is so pissed off that he's the only one remaining in prison that he is still filing motions to appeal based on technicalities; Google his name and you will find excerpts from them. His daughter protests that he deserves a second chance. The guy is only remorseful that he is still in jail; he and his daughter express no sorrow over the slaughter of half a family.

Natalie, I have no idea why you are commenting on this, you know absolutely nothing about it. Shut your mouth. Your father is a woman beater, abusive, athiest, bastard. He beat your own mother repeatedly...we're you aware of THAT? He kidnapped you as a baby and your mother (our mother) risked her own life to find you and get you back. Ask him a few questions. No matter, he will burn in Hell as he should for all of eternity. Think twice before you try to scam me and my family again. You were my little sister. We are English and Irish, so why do you have a Spanish accent?

Sorry..didn't mean to write the facts wrong. I never met Rolly...or Danny...it was a year or so after when I became friends with Mike and Kenny but it wasn't something talked about much...I just knew something happened involving a girl. I remember the Wish U here Rolly spray painted at Hudson Park. i was very young then but have many memories of my days back then,,hanging at kenny's until his dad would say enough..and we'd all go over to the Park, and what mostly touched my heart was the friendship between Kenny and Mike

In February of 2013 my family and i will once again relive the most horrendous time of our lives when the man who brutally beat, raped and then stabbed my grandmother Erika Thibeault to death almost 30 years ago on the top floor of the high risers then known as Post office Sq. comes up for parole again.His name is William B Veilette. He was 27 and my grandmother was 55.The brutality of the murder is the reason he has been denied parole at previous hearings. I hope and pray he is never released.

even the consideration of parole for this piece of crap should never happen... he should never see anything beyond his jail cell ever... good luck

I am Janices cousin and was very close to her older sister...at the time this was definately botched by the lowell pd...but why was the belief so strong (even by janices mother) that dennis baker did this? Is this possible that George could be Janices killer? Are you saying the older sister might know something?? I was around when this happened...
