Five Things You Need To Know Today, March 27
Catch up on Woburn Police's busy weekend.
Here are five things you need to know today:
1) Cast your fate to the wind: It’s going to be another windy one out there today! According to the National Weather Service, Woburn will have winds of 13 to 20 miles per hour and could see gusts as high as 30 mph. Sunshine and temperatures in the low 40s rounds out the forecast.
2) Shop for free: Learn how to carefully use coupons to lighten your shopping bills. The St. Charles School is hosting a night with coupon expert Kathy Spencer from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is geared toward men and women—anyone who loves a bargain!
4) In case you missed it: Several Woburn Police-related stories were posted yesterday. Catch up with these three stories: an intoxicated man “annoying” Horn Pond visitors, a woman allegedly pointing a gun at an acquaintance and a girl escaping the grip of a stranger.
5) Scotland Yard breakthrough: On this day in 1905, the investigators at Scotland Yard use the newest technology—fingerprinting—to identify the murderers of a South London couple. A pair of shopkeepers were killed and their cash box stolen; but the thieves left behind a solid thumbprint. After learning that a witness saw two young men near the shop the day of the murders, Scotland Yard began looking for the killers. Alfred Stratton’s thumbprint matched the one on the cash box, and he and his brother, Albert, were convicted and later hanged for the crime.
