The 1988 murder of Melissa Tremblay shook the world of those that knew her in the town of Lawrence, Massachusetts. The sixth grader had gone with her mother and boyfriend (of the mothers) to the blue collar city so that they could go to a social club. Melissa played outside and would later be found stabbed to death. Marvin “Skip” McClendon Jr., 74, of Breman, Alabama, was arrested for the murder and had ties to the city where Tremblay was killed. He was also a former Massachusetts Department of Corrections employee.
