At 4 a.m. August 20, 1990 Tina Hosmer Smith was shot and killed on Goodale Street, on a street just behind Watertown police headquarters. Police said that Tina had earlier been seen at the Jack in the Box Tavern on Arcade Street. Smith, an unemployed 20-year-old, was estranged from her husband at the time but police ruled him out; due to his strong alibi.

There is a reward from the family for information on this case.

The murderer has yet to be found.



For supernatural buffs - some say Gooddale Street is haunted by the ghost of Tina Hosmer Smith.
