    State Police hope for break in old homicide


    In the late '80s, the remains of at least six young women had been dumped beside back roads along Interstate 91 in a stretch that straddled Vermont and New Hampshire. A killer had slit throats and stabbed victims repeatedly in the lower abdomen.

    The cases came to be known as the Connecticut River Valley slayings.

    In "Shadow of Death," the author identifies a local boy, a marine home on leave and later discharged for emotional disturbances, who fell under suspicion for this murder. Since he uses a pseudonym, it's kind of difficult to track what happened to him after the case went cold but he definitely sounded like a promising lead. Does anyone know more about this?

    In addition to the disturbed young marine, there was another POI in the Lynda Moore murder, a local man who claimed to have psychic abilities and "saw" the crime happen. There was a similar figure who popped up in the Heidi Martin case. Does anyone know if these two men are the same person?

    Ive read the Shadow of Death and through "old-timers" have been told names of who the book was about. I don't recall the local guy who had visions of the murder although Im pretty local to this case. I went to school with Lynda's son and remember the murder well. There was always some speculation that the killer was not a stranger to Lyndia.
