Famous folks from Belmont
The author of "The Perfect Storm'' is from Belmont. He can recall exploring the forests of Belmont Hill with a slingshot in hand.
Junger's odder connection to Belmont is with Albert Desalvo, also known as The Boston Strangler. Junger, as a toddler, was photographed with Desalvo.
Junger, as an adult, turned his nonfiction narrative skills to "A Death in Belmont'' in 2006, which told the story of Bessie Goldberg and Desalvo and the town the crime occurred in.
