MA- Leigh Savoie- April 1978

Ten year old Leigh Savoie was last seen at a Beachmont Square restaurant in Revere, Massachusetts on April 7, 1974. That day he was on his way to Suffolk Downs, a racing track in Revere where he regularly worked as a shoeshiner to earn money for candy and other treats. The owner of the restaurant reported that Savoie ate a sandwich before asking the him if he could watch Savoie's shoeshine kit for a few minutes. Savoie then left the restaurant never to be seen again.

Hundreds of jockeys, security guards, and other personnel at Suffolk Downs were questioned along with all of Savoie's friends and neighbors. Police were unable to obtain any leads pertaining to where Savoie might have gone and the case eventually went cold. Now though officials hope Savoie's case will be reignited by a new $5,000 reward as well as an age progressed photo of the boy. At a press conference on Thursday, Suffolk DA, Daniel Conley, announced that thanks to the newly granted reward money and a renewed interest in missing persons cases after the finding of Jaycee Lee Dugard the Suffolk County DA is reopening the search for the long missing boy.

Leigh Savoie was 4 feet 4 inches tall and weighted 60 pounds when he disappeared. He had brown hair and brown eyes. When last seen, he was wearing blue pants, a white shirt bearing the words, "try it, you'll like it," and a blue sweater. He would now be forty-five. Anyone with information about the disappearance of Leigh Savoie is encouraged to call Lt. Det. Jack Lannon at 617-727-8817.

New lead in Leigh Savoie case: http://www.myfoxboston.com/dpp/news/...f-leigh-savoie

Another little boy, the same age as Leigh, was beaten and sexually assaulted while working at Suffolk Downs in 1974. Police are investigating whether this incident could be related to the case of Leigh Savoie.

If he was a regular over there, with his shoeshining, you'd think that somebody somewhere would recall seeing him or talking to him...funny that they talked to all those people and got no leads...?
