Boston Herald Reports Incorrect Information

“The story appearing in the Boston Herald today under the headline, "Police Nab Two, Break in Massacre Mystery," is absolutely incorrect. The "sources" are not credible. THE STORY IS NOT TRUE.While homicide investigators, working around the clock, try not to be distracted by rumors and speculation, a story of this nature is very damaging. Commanders and detectives must now spend the next several hours contacting the victims' families and other witnesses to set the record straight rather than following important leads in this case. This type of false story could undermine the good progress made in this investigation. The Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office will continue to release accurate, official information in this case as quickly as possible, as occurred yesterday following the discovery of the vehicle. Detectives are proceeding in a professional and methodical way. We urge our partners in the media not to be distracted by the "sources" who could potentially jeopardize such an important investigation with grossly inaccurate information. Such reporting is hurtful and irresponsible. It is particularly unfair to victims' loved ones who are already devastated by this tragedy.” Sergeant Detective Thomas Sexton, Commander Office of Media Relations
