  • Case History

    The victim was found floating in Stump Pond, Smithfield, RI in 1987. His body was weighted down and riddled with 21 stab wounds. The man was festooned in chicken wire and ballasted by 90 pounds of rocks and barbell weights, all fastened by coaxial cable. He had 7 wounds on his head, 14 on his chest. The weapon was thought to have been an ice pick or similar instrument. Anchored by the weights, he had presumably lain out of sight on the floor of the pond for one to three weeks. There was neither wallet nor identification.

    Smithfield, Rhode Island is close to Massachusetts and Connecticut. The victim and the killer could be from anywhere in New England.
