My husband knew the killer. This haunts him to this day. The night this murder occurred, he and a group of friends were hanging at the quary near the killer's work while the killer was doing his worst. He said that he disapperred for awhile, then came back a couple of hours later like nothing had happened. He even drove his friends home WITH A DEAD BODY IN HIS TRUNK!!! Police later pulled him in for questioning and told him details of the murder. Not only did Dana Daggett, the killer, stab this woman, but he tortured her by hooking jumper cables up to her nipples and raping/sodomizing her with broom sticks and and metal rods. My husband said that Dana was just one of the guys and never appeared to be so inhumane toward women or anyone. It goes to show that you never know what evil lurks in people...even in your best friends!

Referring to the original post in this thread, I believe I know of the case you are thinking of. It was in 1988 and the person convicted of the killing is Dana Daggett. I don't know anything about the victim but I remember the case because I had previously worked with Daggett at a computer company in Needham, where he was in the maintenance dept.

This murder haunts me to this day. I lived close to the murder scene and had heard screaming, but it sounded like a wild animal and couldn't fathom a scream like that to be human, but it was. Also, her murderer lived in an apartment bld my father owned years earlier, he made life very miserable for us all.
remember this well. The killers name was Dana Dagget rhymed with maggot and he hooked up this poor young gal to a battery jumper amongst other things during the torture which was at a water treatment plant of sorts in Ply. County. The perp. I believe was sent initially to Bridgewater to have his head examined and I do believe he is incarcerated in Ply. Ma. This I do recall as I thought the prison was not for lifers which I do hope he is getting.

COMMONWEALTH vs. DANA A. DAGGETT.
416 Mass. 347
May 6, 1993 - November 8, 1993
Plymouth County
Present: LIACOS, C.J., WILKINS, ABRAMS, NOLAN, & LYNCH, JJ.
At a murder trial, any error in the admission of evidence of tests performed on the victim's deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and on DNA extracted from blood found in the trunk of the defendant's automobile and at the defendant's workplace was harmless where this evidence was merely cumulative of other overwhelming evidence linking the defendant to the victim.[352-353] LIACOS, C.J., and NOLAN, J., were of opinion that the evidence of DNA testing, although not prejudicial, was improperly admitted. WILKINS, J., concurring, agreed that the defendant was not prejudiced by the admission of this evidence, but expressed no view on its admissibility. ABRAMS, J., with whom LYNCH, J., joined, was of opinion that the admission of this evidence was proper.
There was no error in the denial of a criminal defendant's motions to suppress his statement to police, and to suppress as well certain items seized by police in a search of his automobile and his apartment to which the defendant had consented.[353-354]
At a murder trial, evidence of the defendant's prior illegal conduct was properly admitted as tending to show that he had the ability, opportunity, and knowledge to commit the crime with which he was charged.[354] At a criminal trial, the defendant was not prejudiced by the prosecutor's reference, in closing argument, to certain evidence which, even if improperly admitted, was not prejudicial.[354-355] At a criminal trial, the prosecutor's reference, in closing argument, to the defendant's prior arrest for soliciting a prostitute did not invite an improper inference from evidence of prior illegal conduct but, rather, viewed in context, was a reference to the defendant's opportunity, knowledge, and ability to commit the crime.[355]
Page 348
INDICTMENT found and returned in the Superior Court Department on December 30, 1988.
Pretrial motions to permit the introduction of evidence of scientific tests, and to suppress evidence, were heard by Suzanne V. DelVecchio, J., and William H. Carey, J., respectively. The case was tried before Cortland A. Mathers, J.
Juliane Balliro for the defendant.
Robert C. Thompson, Assistant District Attorney, for the Commonwealth.
LIACOS, C.J. The defendant, Dana A. Daggett, was convicted of murder in the first degree by reason of extreme atrocity or cruelty. The principal claim of error the defendant makes is that evidence of tests performed on the victim's deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and DNA extracted from blood in the trunk of the defendant's automobile and blood found at the plant where defendant worked was improperly admitted at trial. The defendant contends that the error committed requires a new trial. The author of this opinion and Justice Nolan conclude that the evidence was not properly admitted; a majority of the quorum concludes that any error was not prejudicial. Therefore, we affirm.

Since the original post I have been racking my brain, or what is left of it, to recall all of these murders. There is talk of the police knowing who killed the elderly woman on West St, but for some reason, no arrest. As for the couple on Four Winds Drive, they were killed by a woman who later shot and wounded a man on the shore of Stetson Pond on Plymouth St. Bullistics matched the gun to the murders. Around the same time, a man killed two (?) women in Plymouth and buried one of them in his yard on Gorham Ave in Bryantville. If I recall, there was a murder / suicide in North Pembroke. All murders occurred around the same time. Shocking for such a small bedroom community.
Can anyone fill in some details? I don't know why this is bugging me. Thanks.

The murder on West St, was that near Bryantville Elementary School in the early 80's? I remember a murder taking place in a yellow house near the school when i was a kid.

If you have information that he was framed, why hasn't something been done about it? DNA wasn't in widespread use back then, maybe you can catch the real killer by raising a ruckus? DNA is really the only thing that could free him, IF he's innocent, as you affirm here.

the only thing the law cares about is a conviction and back then there DNA testing wasn't as advanced as it is today and how many other peaple had access to where he work.

There is still evidence available to test, no doubt. I'm surprised that they haven't gone back to test, if there's a possibility that he can be cleared. I read an article about old cases being tested for DNA evidence, and it said that all the old cases that could be cleared are done already, and the rest of them don't want to investigate because they are either guilty, or don't want to be linked to other crimes that could lengthen they sentences.

If I was serving a life sentence for something I didn't do, I'd NEVER give up. I don't think others would either.

Most "life" sentences mean about ten years in the real world, parole or not. We recently had a "lifer" kill too men at a golf course, so much for Life in prison. Last I heard he's out on bail.
