What Happened at 31 High Street?

WatervilleMaineUnited States

  • March 8th, 1954

    On March 8, 1954, Carl Fisher arrived from work to his house at 31 High Street, Waterville, Maine, and found his son, David, age 4, lying dead on the sofa. His 11-month-old daughter was dead in her crib, and Richard, age 6, was still in the tub. Carl's wife, Constance Fisher, suffering from what would today likely be diagnosed as postpartum psychosis, had drowned their children. Carl finally found his wife hiding underneath a bed, where she had drank a bottle of Selsun Blue shampoo, believing it was poisonous and would kill her. Mrs. Fisher was diagnosed as mentally ill and therefore not responsible for her actions. She was committed to the asylum in Augusta. After five years of treatment, Mrs. Fisher was released and came back home to 31 High St. She and Carl had three more children. All seemed to be going well until June 30, 1966, when Carl again came home from work and discovered Constance had again drowned all three of their children, Kathleen, 6, Michael, 4, and Natalie, 9 months, in the bathtub. Constance was again committed to the asylum at Augusta, but on the night of October 1, 1973, she walked off the hospital grounds and either fell or jumped into the Kennebec River. Her body was carried down river by the current and was found days later in South Gardiner. Carl, Constance and their six children are all buried at Saint Francis Catholic Cemetery in Waterville.
