***  Unsolved:

 

On Feb. 27, 1978, over 36 years ago, at approximately 12:45am near the Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA,  Julie campbell was stabbed multiple times and left to die in a snowbank.  Julie was only 23 years old at the time.  Julie’s family was originally from Lexington, MA.

 

Julie is the sister of my friend Clay Campbell, who I know from my Boy Scout days.  Clay is very close to my friend Larry Beafield, who I also know from my Boy Scout days.  In fact, Clay and I travelled from Colotadao and Virginia repectively to see Larry rceieve the Daniel Carter Beard award from the Newton Masonic Lodge for service to Scouting several weeks ago.

 

Julie’s murder has remained a Cold Case… just like so many that you see on TV reality shows nowadays.  But unlike TV – this one’s still unsolved and unfortunately, Clay’s parents and his younger brother have all passed on – never knowing.

 

Bob Ward, Boston’s FOX25 crime reporter, aired a story on this case last night:

 

http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/25353631/new-englands-unsolved-julie-campbell

 

Clay and Larry have formed “Committee” to bring attention to the case. “At this stage it’s relatively straightforward – we’d like to have the evidence file reopened by the Middlesex County DA’s Office and subjected to modern day forensic technologies,” says Larry.  “36 years is a long time – so who knows what may be uncovered.”

 

There is a website – JulieCampbellMurder.com – and a Facebook page  (Julie Campbell Unsolved Murder).

 

Tom Shamshak, Shamshak Investigative Services (http://www.shamshakpi.com/) is volunteering his professional services to look into the case.

 

Thanks to Larry for making this information available.
