Her body had been dismembered. Four years later her feet, head and hands were found buried at Nahant Beach inside plastic containers.
Eugene McCollom, who was convicted of killing Chelsea Jane Doe, told investigators Jane Doe was a prostitute he had picked up in Boston’s Theater District.
“He was claiming self-defense. He was claiming the victim in this case got a hold of a knife that he had in the room and tried to attack him,” said Kyes. “He gave some account that he’s living in a small room. He had to dispose of the body so in his own wisdom decided the only way (he) could do that was to take her out in pieces,” Boston 25 news reports.
