I found no mention of Karen Hammond any where on the forum so I wanted to make a thread. I've also searched the internet for anything about her but there is nothing except articles about her parents thinking her body may have been dumped in the Quincy Rail Quarry in Quincy, Ma. From what I've been able to find on the internet: Karen Hammond was a 21 yr. old mother of two from Dorchester, Ma.. There is talk about her maybe being a prostitute and maybe involved with drugs. On Jan. 3, 1995 she was out with her boyfriend until the late afternoon then he dropped her off at a convience store (Store-24) close by where she lived. That is the last time anyone seen her. In November 1994 the body of missing 17yr old Sonia Leal was found in the Quincy Quarry while divers were there looking for another missing person, irish student PJ McDonagh who was last seen there. Sonia Leal was put there by 3 men after they picked her up in the combat zone (place in Boston where prositutes are) raped and killed her. The 3 men were arrested in the spring of 1995. Between 1994 and 1997 police were still looking in the quarry for PJ McDonagh. In November 1997 police using sonar equipment seen two bodies in the quarry, one male and one female. They were able to bring up the male body who turned out to be PJ McDonagh but were never able to find the female body again. Karen Hammonds parents think it may be her. I don't know why they think it's her, I can't find anything that says why. I'm guessing that since the other woman found was a prostitute that maybe the same men killed Karen and dumped her body there as well. In one article I found it states that investigators DO NOT think it's Karen Hammond in the quarry. If it's not her then where is she and why aren't they looking for her? Since 1997 they have since filled up that quarry with the body still in it. Her family and children will never know for sure if it was her or not. One of the reasons I wanted to put this here is that there is nothing any where that I can find about Karen Hammond. It seems as though her disappearance is not that important to investigators......probably because of her lifestyle. The other reason I wanted to post about Karen is because as a child my family and her family lived in the same triple decker for a while in Dorchester. She lived on the first floor with her parents, two sisters and a brother. Karen and I were the same age and went to school together. My younger sister and I would play almost everyday with her and one of her younger sisters. We were very good friends until I moved away. I never talked to or heard anything about her again after that until I heard about the quarries in 1997. There is no missing person page for her anywhere.....if you know of one please let me know.
