Vermont Man Potentially Involved in Murder of Chelmsford Woman
22-year-old Michael Norrie of Sheffield, Vermont was "confessing" to the murder of Chelmsford resident Mary O'Hagan in 2010 before ending cooperation with the authorities according to the Burlington Free Press.
The Burlington Free Press reports that sworn remarks in a gun prosecution against a Vermont man may hold clues to the murder of a Chelmsford resident.
Michael Norrie, 22, of Sheffield, Vermont had been "confessing to the murder" of 78-year-old Chelmsford resident Mary "Pat" O'Hagan he recanted his testimony, said Vermont State Police Detective Sgt. Jason Letourneau.
That near testimony came in Oct. 2010, shortly after O'Hagan's body was found in the woods 10 miles from Norrie's home.
This revelation came during proceedings in an unrelated gun prosecution against Norrie, who has been in custody since 2011 and has suffered from neurological disabilities according sources mentioned in the Free Press story.
Norrie has not been formally charged in the O'Hagan case according to Vermont State Police spokespeople.
