"Lowell murdered his wife on a country road near Lewiston, Maine, in June, 1870; the body was not found for more than three years, when the headless skeleton was discovered. Despite the lapse of time, Lowell was convicted. The victim's mother had a dream about the time of the murder which foretold the circumstances of her death" - McDade. McDADE 633.
