BOSTON (CBS) – A young woman was kidnapped from South Boston in broad daylight Tuesday morning and forced to take out money from five different ATMs before she was taken to Stony Brook Reservation in Hyde Park and stabbed to death, the District Attorney said on Wednesday.
The body of the victim, identified as 24-year-old Amy Lord, was discovered Tuesday afternoon. Police believe she was in her car when she was abducted around 6 a.m. Her car was later returned to South Boston, where it was set on fire.
Officials released a surveillance photo from one of the ATMs to see if anyone might recall seeing Lord. Police are asking anyone with who may have seen Lord to contact them. They also said no one has been charged in the case.
Lord’s account was accessed at the following ATMs:
- East Boston Savings Bank at 501 Southampton Street
- Metro Credit Union at 1071 Massachusetts Ave
- Bank of America at 555 Columbia Road
- Sovereign Bank at 585 Columbia Road
- Citizen’s Bank at 217 Adams Street
The attack was just one of three in the same South Boston neighborhood within a 24-hour period. Boston police say in the hours after Lord’s kidnapping and murder, another woman was stabbed and a third was punched. Both managed to escape their attacker. A man was taken into custody and faces charges for one of those attacks. Boston police were looking into the incidents, but were not willing to say whether there was a connection.
