So, did they kill her and then "find" her out of guilt? There is so little to this story and it's quite a big deal....strange.

Remember a year or two ago when they found that boy dead in the forest? Was there ever any conclusion to that death? If I recall, it was deemed homicide although I wasn't sure if it turned out to be murder. Anybody know?

Where is the followup on this story ???? This is hardly the first person to turn up dead in October Mountain under suspicious circumstances.

Anthony Collucci? I thought it said he was murdered but no resolve ever came of it.

It is strange how there is still NO followup.

The real storie was on T.V. where they do produce news sometimes.They say she was a ladie of the night and are investigating her death along with many other ladies of the night. Presumably murdered..They don't like to have big expensive murder investigations when murders like these happen.. For two reasons.#1 They were poor and unimportant to athorities.Not much to go on, plus they don't want to cause mass hysteria.So they keep it vauge like the Berkshire Eagle.

The one you people were talking about that happened was a friend of my nephew and I heard alot of inside information about the case. He had some sort of wierdo friend a man much older than the boy.He was suspect No. #1 but no evidense and no charges. Cold case. It seems the only cases the local police solve are the ones that fall into thier lap.

Remember the other murder in Pittsfield where the plumer was found frozen to death in his van on Circular Ave. Duck taped up & beat up he died of natural causes he froze to death. No crime. Good investigating.

Collucci was molested and mutilated. Supposedly he was either lured there by an acquaintance for what turned out to be S&M/Bondadge style homosexual sex.
As well there were signs of a ritualistic killing again related to BDSM or some sort of cult activity.

I think there have been a couple more "odd finds" in the various parks. Recently there has been some significant gang activity, including an attempted murder that has gone unreported due to fear and intimidation. There has been a substantial increase in local parks being used as drop off points for large drug trafficking. This happened in Pittsfield State Forrest and October Mountain as well as some side areas in Graylock.

As the Drug task force moves into the cities to thwart drugs, the dealers move to the various parks to continue operations. The State Forests are perfect because of lack of policing, secluded locations and relative privacy, and the commoness of out of staters'.
Be VERY careful when using the parks, you might find yourself in the middle of a drug turf war.

The berkshire buzzard is too busy "investigating" what will on Spice's new menu too worry about journalism.

I believe that one was solved. Drug dealer kid, he's now doing other time I believe. It wasn't his fault per se, the guy froze to death or something after getting too high (or possible roughed up as well). I think the kid is doing time for drug dealing, not sure if it is related to the van crime though. Also, not sure if the duct tape part was a rumor or actually true.

Well, I can say for sure that the hikers that found the body did not kill "her" since I am one of them...

Where exactly is October Mountain State Park? I frequently hike in the area and now I'm thinking twice about returning. Is it in Lenox? Near Kripalu?

Hmm, Do you think there was foul play and the police are trying to cover it up?

And to think I was worried about running into a bear....

How do you know so much about this? You say you "think there has been a couple more 'odd finds'" Curious to know where you are getting your information from.

Well, I am left feeling a little bit like the wool has been pulled over our eyes. I searched yesterday's online edition of this paper for the update article and could not find it. The paper edition has a very vague and short article placed in a very inconspicuous section of the paper revealing that the DA has ruled it a suicide and no further information will be given. No name, details, or even where the person is from.

Is this because it is a "suicide" or is it because there is more to the story and officials have no desire to create a mass hysteria? I can't seem to get over the fact that the number of unexplained deaths and/or homicides in the last couple of years is a bit disturbing.
