MA - Patricia Gonyea, 17, killed near railroad tracks, Worcester 22 Oct 1984
Name Gonyea, Patricia Age 17 Race/Sex W/F Date of Incident 10/22/1984 Address of Incident 95 Grand Street Type of Incident Unsolved Homicide Cause of Death (if applicable) Massive Head Trauma/Rape Image(s) Synopsis 17 year old female was sexually assaulted and bludgeoned to death on the railroad tracks near Southgate Street on 10-22-1984. Gonyea was found outside the window well of the Branson Wire Company.
Miss Gonyea got off a bus at 11:15 p.m. Oct. 22 at Main Street across from Gates Street. She wasn’t far from her home, at 71 Southgate St. It was raining, and she took a shortcut near the former Crompton & Knowles complex to get home.“When I think back to the case, this girl was chased down a set of tracks in a rainstorm, beaten and her body was hidden,” Capt. McGinn said. “It was one of these cases where the victim was a true innocent.”Police found her nude body in a 6-foot-deep window well Oct. 23, 1984. Her clothes were discovered in an alley nearby. Authorities ruled she died from a skull fracture. Lt. Grady also found, through close scrutiny of crime scene photographs, that a wire was wrapped around her neck.
Others recalled her love of the color purple, roller skating and vacations at Old Orchard Beach in Maine.
“She was a good student, a good friend and just a good person,” L’Ecuyer said. “I looked up to her.”
She noted Gonyea worked three jobs, including as a waitress and a babysitter, and still found time to help take care of her younger siblings.
