I remember when JoAnne Pecheone (sp?) was killed. That was 1972 I believe. She was walking home from DeSales & cut through that wooded area by MVCC to get to Nob Rd. You've got a point there, Long Time Utican.
Just interested

Yes, she was Mary Rose Turner. She and her husband, Bill had 5 children (1 girl, 4 boys (twin boys)and 2 other boys. The kids were brought up in Waterville in the last 40s' early 50s'. Three sons have passed away - one remaining lives in Florida (Clyde) and girl(Mary Ann) the last I knew lived in Syracuse. Mary Turner and her husband were divorced when this all happened. Hatch went with an Andrea Rooney in high school. They married and I have been told but don't know for sure that Andrea committed
suicide after Hatch was convicted.
It has always been rumored that Hatch also murdered that Pacchone(?) girl in south east Utica.

please post if anyone hears there is a parole hearing. I will be the first one there ! Lucky me, I even had gotten in an argument with him at the gas station. Never dreaming he would have killed me for it !!! Speaking of Rogers Coffee Sho. That is where he looked for his victims ! My mom being one of them, then Poor Mrs. Turner. If it only hadn't been raining that day.

You may be interested in reading that new book written about Hatch & his exploits. It's by Dr. Blanchfield who was a professor at UC.

Back in 1975 (after Hatch had been arrested), I went on a motorcyle ride with my son when something happened and the bike just quit running. We were on the Road where Potatoe Hill Road is and there was a house that sat back off the road. My son (who was 17 years old at the time) told me to stay by the bike while he went to the house and ask if he could borrow a tool to get the bike working again.

This was back in the days of the "Hippy" style haircut. When he knocked on the door of the house, 2 men and a woman came charging out all ready beat my son up!!!!! When he explained to them what happened to the bike, and his Mother was standing by the bike, they still didn't believe him.

They all marched up the road to where I was and asked who I was. When I told them I was his mother, they still didn't believe me as they said I didn't look "old enough" to be his mother!!!! I explained I was 18 years older than him, and I also had a daughter that was 2 years older than my son - then they believed I was telling the truth.

Once they realized we were not "Killers", they helped my son get the bike started and explained how leary everyone was in that part of the country - all because of what Hatch had done.

We ended up thanking them for their help and left. That was the last time I ever went on a motorcyle ride with my son - LOL!

All kidding aside, all the people that lived near or around Potatoe Hill Road were frightened out of their wits all because of what Hatch had done.

Please refer to the above link. Hatch is at Auburn State Prison and it shows his next Parole Hearing will be in June 2010. I'm sure if you call Auburn Prison, they will tell you the actual date of his Parole Hearing and whether or not you could be present.

Just a little FYI...I just stopped at Barnes and Noble to pick up the book and they are ordering them for people. The girl at the counter said they've had about 25 people come in and ask for it. It's being printed and distributed on a per request basis according to her. It should take about a week to come in. It's called A Killer Named Hatch Massacre On Potato Hill.

Does anyone know the exact spot that she was dragged,
I know someone posted a google map, but between what two streets did this happen, the two streets would
give the best reference, because this road is really
really long.
