BOSTON (CBS) – A man accused of attacking two women in South Boston this week is a person of interest in the murder of Amy Lord, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said Friday.
Edwin Alemany, 28, was arrested Wednesday in the attacks and was taken to Bridgewater State Hospital for an evaluation.
Authorities say Lord, 24, was forced to take out money from five different ATMs before she was taken to Stony Brook Reservation in Hyde Park and stabbed to death on Tuesday.
“We are confident and comfortable that we are on the right track in this case,” said Davis. “Scientific and DNA testing takes time. We want to proceed with all appropriate caution.”
