Lorne J. Acquin (March 21, 1950 – June 2015) was an American mass murderer who killed his foster brother's wife, her seven children, and their niece in their home at Cedar Hill Drive in Prospect, Connecticut, on July 22, 1977, by beating them to death with a tire iron. He afterward set fire to the building and escaped, but was arrested the following day and sentenced to 105 years in prison two years later. It was the largest mass murder in Connecticut history until the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
