BOSTON (CBS) – The family of a young woman who was murdered is thanking the South Boston community for their support.

Investigators say last month, Edwin Alemany kidnapped 24-year-old Amy Lord, forced her to take out money from ATMs, then stabbed and strangled her.

Her body was found in Hyde Park.

In a letter to South Boston Online, the Lord family wrote in part:

“We know your hearts are breaking right now for Amy and our family. Amy grew up in a wonderful, small community town. When she moved to Boston she was looking for the same feeling and she found it in Southie.”

“Thank you so much for your show of solidarity and connection to us. But most importantly thank you for embracing Amy. We are sure she is smiling in the vibrant, infectious and loving way that only Amy can.”
