Case History
The victims' headless remains were found on the grounds of the Soldiers' Home in Chelsea, Massachusetts on November 12, 2000. In January of 2004, police located the victims' head and hands buried in a container on a beach in the North Shore town of Nahant, Massachusetts. The victim was a prostitute in the Boston area.

Surveillance footage captured Eugene McCollom dumping the body, which was wrapped in a blanket. McCollom allegedly stated that the victim had identified herself as “Lisa” and that she was from “Philly”. He also told investigators that he picked up the prostitute in Boston and drove her to his room at the YMCA in Lynn, Massachusetts. They then argued over money and he strangled her.

Eugene McCollom pleaded guilty to this homicide in February 2005.
