Case Unsolved: The Murder of William Spicer, Episode 2
William Spicer Jr. was stabbed to death on March 15, 1995, on his Christmas tree farm in Groton. He was found dead inside his tan Ford Taurus on a dirt road at the 27-acre Sparkle Lake Christmas Tree Farm. He had been stabbed multiple times in the neck and abdomen. Episode 2 of "Case Unsolved" will be available beginning today.
In the days after his murder, a helicopter flew overhead and police dogs ran through the trees. Police looked in storm drains and trash bins nearby for a murder weapon and stopped motorists on Thomas Road seeking tips. Five days after the murder, divers searched an irrigation pond near the 13th hole of the Trumbull Golf Course.
You can listen to the first two episodes at www.caseunsolvedpodcast.com or on any podcast app. Four episodes on the murder of Desiree Michaud, in 1984 in Groton, also are available for listening.
