    3 men two who were friends of John's have been arrested and charged with his 1969 Lowell,MA murder after the case was recently reopened and one of the men confessed and cooperated with police. They are Michael Ferreira, now 57, Walter Shelley,60 and Allan Edward Brown, 59 who confessed. Ferreira and Shelley are in jail on half a million dollars bond. Brown is out because he cooperated with police. John's elderly parents are happy that there will finally be justice for their son who was killed for flirting with Shelley's girlfriend. He was beaten and hog tied. When the boys returned to him hours later they found him dead. He had been strangled by the hog tie rope when he tried to escape. They kept their deadly secret for 41 and 1/2 years. His parents found that both brown and Ferreira had signed the book at John's wake. http://***************/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474979238787

    What a sad case, these men are all grown and have lived their lives, while John never got that chance.

    'Cold case' slaying trial set to open

    By Lisa Redmond,

    LOWELL -- <modsnip>

    The McCabe family's lengthy legal trek through the courts, which began more than a year ago with arrests in this "cold case," will culminate with the first of three men accused of killing their son on the night of Sept. 26, 1969 going on trial, possibly as early as this week.

    Michael Ferreira, 57, of Salem, N.H., was scheduled to go on trial for first-degree and perjury on Monday. His trial is now set to start immediately after the completion of the murder trial of The Ngoc Tran, which is currently being heard in Lowell Superior Court.

    The other two men charged in the case -- Walter Shelley, 61, of Tewksbury, is charged with murder and intimidation of a witness, and Edward Allen Brown, 60, of Londonderry, N.H. is charged with manslaughter -- will be tried at a later date.
