The husband of the woman killed two years ago in the frozen food aisle of the Shaw’s Supermarket in Saco has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court in Portland alleging the company needs to do more to protect customers.
Wendy Boudreau, 59, of Saco died Aug. 19, 2015, after she was attacked from behind by Connor S. MacCalister, who slit Boudreau’s throat.
MacCalister is currently serving a life sentence at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham.
The wrongful death suit filed states that Wendy was followed by MacCalister throughout the store until the two reached the frozen food section. The suit claims that the store (Shaw’s) didn’t appropriately monitor the store and failed to utilize existing surveillance equipment.
What do you think? Is this a case of poor security? Or is this a case of something sadly tragic can happen anywhere at anytime?
