      27 October 1844

      A horrible murder was perpetrated in a narrow street running between Cedar and Charles Streets, on the person of a Mrs. Bickford, late of Bangor, ME, by one Albert J. Tirrell, of Weymouth, MA, by cutting her throat from ear to ear. He then attempted burning the house to conceal his awful crime; the alarm was seasonable, and the threatened conflagration prevented. The body was awfully disfigured by the fire, as it was evident that Tirrell had tried to burn her upon the grate, or rather, leave the impression that she came accidentally by her death. Tirrell made his escape.
