Date: February 3, 1964
Details: Rena Paquette was a New Hampshire wife and mother in Manchester, New Hampshire. On January 13, 1964, a fourteen year old babysitter named Pamela Mason vanished and was later found murdered. Rena began telling people that she knew who the killer was, a local man named Edward Coolidge. However, before she was able to tell the police, she was found burned to death on a barn on her property on February 3, 1964. The authorities ruled her death a suicide. Coolidge was later arrested and convicted of Pamela's murder, but was eventually released from prison on a technicality. Years later, in 1985, Rena's son, Danny, was shot to death while working and his killer has yet to be found. Some believe that Danny may have been silenced for information he knew about his mother's death.
