Henry Bedard was 15 years old in December 1974 when he was found murdered just off a main road, up on a rocky ridge, in Swampscott, MA. It was a spot kids gathered at during warmer months. It was not on his route home. He had left school for the day, had done several errands in town, was waved to by a police officer as he crossed the street in a hurry; he greeted several DPW workers as he cut across the Public Works yard to a ridgetop just above their offices. His body was later found there along with the murder weapon, a baseball bat with unusual markings. Investigators think he was hurrying there to meet someone and that the person who murdered him may have been within a close circle of friends. The proximity of the railroad tracks also left open the possibility of a vicious random act, but that did not seem as likely. Here's a link for an article from the Boston Globe: http://www.boston.com/news/globe/living/articles/2004/12/16/regarding_henry This really seems to be a crime worth re-opening. I wish a crime writer would get involved here.
