Officer Paul Stone was only 22 years old. He had just
graduated from the Police Academy. His assignment was to spend
the afternoons on foot patrols along the piers of the edge of South

There was nothing much happening on weekends. The Boston World
Trade Center was deserted.
Officer Stone walked
halfway across the abandoned Northern Avenue Bridge at 7:00
