MEDIA ADVISORY: Major Development in the Case of the Boston Strangler

WHO: Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, members of the Boston Police Cold Case Squad & Crime Lab

WHAT: Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, and Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis will brief the media at 11:00 this morning at Boston Police Headquarters on a major development in the investigation into the Jan. 4, 1964, homicide of Mary Sullivan in her Charles Street apartment. Sullivan, 19, was the last of 11 women whose deaths were popularly attributed to the “Boston Strangler.” One man, Albert DeSalvo, confessed to those homicides and others but was never charged with or convicted of them; he died in 1973 after being sentenced to life in prison on unrelated convictions for armed robbery and sexual assault in a separate series of non-fatal attacks on women. The briefing will be held in the Boston Police Media Room at One Schroeder Plaza.
