I'll bet good money that the person who killed her is known to police; most likely has a rap sheet longer than they are tall; and has received a series of slaps on the wrist up until this point.
I hate being right. I really do. Fresh off the BLNN comes this story.
Boston police 'confident' in probe of 24-year-old's murder
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis says a suspect arrested in connection with two other attacks on women in South Boston this week is a "person of interest" in the abduction and fatal stabbing of a 24-year-old woman.
Davis told reporters Friday that no arrests have been made in the killing of Wilbraham native Amy Lord, but said investigators are examining DNA and other evidence and are "confident and comfortable" they are on the right track.
And the person of interest in this story? Oh, this gets so much better. This may be my new gold standard for the "MA Miracle"...
Edwin Alemany -- who Davis said has a lengthy criminal record -- faces charges of stabbing one woman and punching another in separate incidents. He's currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation.
Davis also announced an internal review into a police detectives failure to arrest 28-year-old Alemany in connection to a Sept. 2012 assault, MyFoxBoston.com reported.
On Sept. 28, 2012, a woman was attacked and strangled on Parker Hill Avenue. The woman reportedly fought back and was able to get a hold of Alemany's wallet and identification, MyFoxBoston.com reported.
Yep. He attacked and tried to kill a woman who, during the attack, got his wallet from him, and yet the Boston PD was unable to even arrest him. Not that he was tried and found not guilty, but that they couldn't even arrest him. Now, silly me, she had his identification, so why not, oh, I don't know, pick him up and see if the victim identifies him?
Just wait. It gets better... From another article on this same story:
"It's incredibly frustrating that we're here today talking about a man that has 18 juvenile arraignments and 34 adult arraignments and is still not incarcerated," said Davis.
