Man Stops Confession In O'Hagan Murder Case
A Vermont State Police detective says a Sheffield man "was confessing to part of the murder" of a Sheffield woman in 2010 when he stopped cooperating with authorities.
The Burlington Free Press reports that the detective testified Wednesday that 22-year-old Michael Norrie, who was being investigated in a firearms case, talked to investigators several times after 78-year-old Mary "Pat" O'Hagan's body was found in the woods 10 miles from her Sheffield home.
Detective Jason Letourneau says Norrie made incriminating remarks.
Norrie is in custody awaiting trial on charges of being a convicted drug user in possession of a stolen gun and having and then selling or trading the gun.
