Murder kept a secret for 42 years

Odd News-Lowell, Massachusetts - The gruesome death in 1969 of 15-year-old John McCabe in a smallMassachusetts town was for many years presumed to be linked to an unknown criminal gang, perhaps one involved in drugs. The teenager had been found strangled, with his hands and throat bound with rope and his eyes and mouth taped shut. His body had been abandoned in a vacant lot in the poor town of Lowell, setting for the recent hit film The Fighter. It was a gruesome crime and one that remained unsolved for more than four decades. Until police made three arrests. What they revealed has caught the imagination of America. Instead of being a random crime, police now believe McCabe was murdered by three of his fellow teenagers, who kept their grim secret between themselves for 42 years.  More
