The tony resort community of Sand Lake in Upstate New York roasted in 90-degree heat for the third straight day on July 7, 1908, when 20-year old Hazel Irene Drew walked along a remote section of Taborton Road. Heavily wooded, this stretch out by Teal’s Pond was popular with squirrel hunters, campers and fishermen looking for bait, but it was risky business for a young woman like Hazel to be alone at night.
"Hazel's Brutal Murder Was All but Forgotten. Until She Inspired 'Twin Peaks.'" is from the May 11, 2017 Entertainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by David Bushman and Mark Givens and narrated by Sam Scholl.
