Crimes, Cover-ups and Fringe Science
Secret Sun - Feb 15, 2010
By now I shouldn’t be surprised by these kinds of things, but I was a bit stunned to find out that I attended high school in Braintree, Mass. with the accused shooter at the University of Alabama. Not only that but I also attended high school with the brother she mowed down with a shotgun in 1986.
I left Braintree as soon as I could and never went back. It was a normal enough town, on the surface at least. But there was a very weird undercurrent at work there, particularly in East Braintree where I grew up. And I wasn’t the only one who sensed it. A friend of mine from the same part of town used to call it “Twin Peaks East.” Appropriately enough, this is the place where I had my leprechaun ‘encounter’, and there’s been other weirdness in EB as well, such as a dying dolphin showing up in a river behind an apartment complex I once had a paper route in. A fresh water river, I might add.
