Episode Sixteen | Shaun Ouillette: Forever Fourteen, Canton, Massachusetts (part two)

The murder of 14-year-old Shaun Ouillette in the fall of 1986 remains one of the cruelest in our state's history. Shaun was the new kid at Canton High looking to make friends. He was an easy going boy whose only mistake was trusting the one kid in town with violent intentions. Part two delves into the the many warning signs given off by his teenaged killer, Rod Matthews, and how an entire town seemed to miss every single one of them.
