Hadden Irving Clark (born July 31, 1952)[1] is an American murderer and suspected serial killer, currently serving two 30-year sentences at Western Correctional Institution in Maryland for the murders of 6-year-old Michelle Dorr in 1986 and 23-year-old Laura Houghteling in 1992.[2][3][4][5][6]He was also given a 10-year sentence for robbery.[3] He is the second of four children, and was born and raised in Troy, New York.[3]

Clark's brother, Bradfield Clark, strangled a woman in California; his father, Hadden Sr., committed suicide.[7][8][9][10]

In 2004, Clark sent a letter claiming he had killed an unidentified woman on Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 1974. Clark explained that he had buried evidence from the crime in his grandfather's garden and that he knew the woman's identity but was not going to tell authorities because he claimed they mistreated him. Because he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, police doubt this confession.[11]
