Fueled by mystery, Hazel’s murder became front page news attracting journalists from all over the country. They reported daily on the “Teal Pond Mystery.” Every day police and detectives made new discoveries. And, with every new discovery came another suspect, more questions and even more mystery.
“Drew – a blond bombshell with a ‘well-formed figure’ – was last seen picking raspberries by the side of Taborton Road at 7 pm on July 7, 1908.” An autopsy report described her as being a “well-formed figure,”
“Hazel Drew was one of those women that other women admired. Her blonde, thick hair, was always immaculately styled. Her blue eyes were serious yet charming, and she had a small, upturned mouth, which in hindsight, made it appear as though she was always hiding a secret.”
