WORCESTER, Mass. – A group of teenagers on an assignment from their art teacher made their way to the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts soon after school let out.

It was May 17, 1972. The Doherty Memorial High School juniors – Beth Ellen T. Hurowitz, 16; Kathy Kartiganer, 17; Beth Dara Silver, 16 – were researching an essay on one of the paintings. A friend, Geri Wolfson, 17, went along.
