reported events that occurred at 40 Schaeffer Street in 1975

Michael Woodmansee was a 16-year-old loner when he sexually abused and murdered his neighbor, 5-year-old Jason Foreman at Woodmansee's 40 Schaeffer St., Peacedale, home in 1975. He kept it a secret - and the boy's body wrapped in a trunk in the basement, with some of his bones cleaned and covered with shellac in his bedroom - for years. In 1982, when he was accused of trying to strangle a 14-year-old Peacedale paperboy he had lured into his house, police charged him with both crimes. Woodmansee took a plea agreement, and in 1983 was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the murder of Foreman, with 10 years suspended with probation, and 10 years, concurrent with the 40-year sentence, for assault on the 14-year-old boy. Due to Rhode Island laws governing credit for good behavior, Woodmansee was released in 2011, after serving 28 years. He was then voluntarily committed to a Rhode Island state mental hospital, where he resides today (2018).

While several news articles do state the address for Woodmansee as 34 Schaeffer Street, it seems that this was an error and the correct address is 40 Schaeffer Street, which is actually located right next door. This should be changed but this entry is archived so a moderator must change the information.
