BOSTON (AP) – The bodies of two infants who died while in the care of an Attleboro sect remain unclaimed in a Boston morgue more than three years after they were exhumed from a makeshift grave in Maine’s Baxter State Park.

The remains of Samuel Robidoux and Jeremiah Corneau were found after investigators were led to the park by Jeremiah’s father, David Corneau, in 2000.

Both boys’ remains are held at the state medical examiner’s office because no one from either family has tried to claim them, Bristol Assistant District Attorney Walter Shea told the Boston Herald.

Slain student remembered

EAST MILLINOCKET (AP) – Hundreds of people turned out Friday to pay respects to slain Colby College student Dawn Rossignol at a funeral Mass at St. Peter’s Catholic Church.

Rossignol, 21, was abducted last week from a Colby parking lot and murdered. Her body was found Sept. 17 in Oakland near a stream. Edward Hackett, a parolee from the Utah prison system, has been charged with her murder.

The Rev. Richard Malo said Rossignol’s death has profoundly affected people who live in the Millinocket area, where Rossignol grew up. But residents will get through the ordeal with the help of God and friends, Malo said

Following the service, friends remembered Rossignol as a fun friend, a popular baby sitter and an “awesome person.”

Outside the church, U.S. Rep. Michael Michaud said, “Dawn was a sweetheart. She touched a lot of people in this area.”
