Jeffrey Mailhot's house

This is Jeffrey Mailhot's former house.

It is located at 221 Cato Street in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

Mailhot lived at this address until his arrest in July 2004.

The serial killer murdered three sex workers between 2003 and 2004. Afterwards, he dismembered their remains, wrapped them in plastic bags, and threw them into dumpsters.

At the time of the murders, there were four apartments in this house. Mailhot and an elderly lady occupied two of them, while the other two lay vacant.

When his neighbor passed away, he was the only tenant left.

Those who knew him said he was polite, quiet, and generous. In fact, he was so soft-spoken that the police initially doubted that he was capable of being a serial killer.

His killing spree came to an end after a tipster contacted the police and told them that a sex worker named Jocelyn Martel had escaped from a man who attacked her at his apartment.

When investigators spoke to Martel, she was able to identify both Mailhot and this property on Cato Street.

During questioning, he quickly folded under pressure and confessed to attacking more than a dozen sex workers. In most cases, he brought his victims back to his apartment and then choked them from behind.

He picked up his first victim, Audrey Harris, while he was driving home drunk from a local strip club.

Although his original intention was to have intercourse with Harris, he ended up choking her from behind until she fell to the floor. After realizing that she was dying, he decided to speed up the process by suffocating her with a pillow.

The next morning, he woke up and saw Harris lying in his bathtub.

Panicked, he wrapped the body in a carpet, loaded it into his vehicle, and then drove around Woonsocket looking for a suitable location to dump it.

However, after driving around for a while, he got cold feet and decided that it was too risky. Consequently, he returned to his apartment with Harris' remains.

After two days of deliberating about what to do, he reasoned that the safest way to get rid of the body was to dismember it with a hacksaw and then dump it in different dumpsters.

In February 2006, Mailhot pleaded guilty to three counts of murder and was sentenced to two terms of life imprisonment plus ten years.
