Former town workers arraigned in deer case

Rowley: Well could reopen today, after no contamination found


After speaking to Rezza about the alleged incident, police interviewed Kneeland and Masse at the Rowley police station on Dec. 8. During the interview, Kneeland said he was hired on Nov. 27 by a Georgetown resident named Robert to butcher a deer he had killed.

The transaction took place in the parking lot of Skip’s Convenience Store off Route 133 and Kneeland then drove the deer to the pumping station, where he and Masse butchered them at the pump house lot. Kneeland added that he was teaching Masse how to butcher deer. The same hunter called Kneeland days later and said he had two more carcasses he’d like have butchered. This time the deer were butchered inside the pump house because the weather had turned warmer that week, according to court documents.
