Murder-suicide dredges up horrors of the past

By Josh Resnek

Frank Trombetta was shot and killed by his brother-in-law William McFeeley while he was working at a Saugus gas station last Friday.

McFeeley left the scene of the crime – a Mobil station located at Essex Street and Lincoln Avenue in Saugus – drove to Woodlawn Cemetery, pulled out a gun while he sat in his car, apparently put it to his head and committed suicide.

Trombetta was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and then pronounced dead.

McFeeley was found seated inside a white Mini Cooper.

He was dead when Everett Police found him there. Both men, Everett residents, were 63.

State Police have yet to release a motive for the murder-suicide. No information has been forthcoming during this time when an official investigation is underway by the District Attorney’s office.
