We take you to the crime scene: a motel room in Groton where Desiree was strangled to death. You also can listen to the recreation of a woman under hypnosis who police believe heard the murder.
Desiree Michaud was an 18-year-old prostitute in New London. She hoped her painting ability would help her walk away from the streets for good. New London in the '80s, too, had big dreams: That artists and musicians could bring new life to the old port city. In 1984, Desiree's chances for a better life ended tragically, and her unsolved murder, some say, represented a sense of dashed hope for New London.
The story of Desiree Michaud runs three episodes. Episodes on other unsolved murders will follow, beginning June 20 with the case of William Spicer Jr., who was murdered on his Christmas tree farm in Groton in 1995.
