BPD Spotlights New Case in its ‘Search for Justice’ Video Series, Seeks Public’s Help in Ongoing Efforts to Solve Unsolved Homicides

Today, in the BPD’s ongoing efforts to solve unsolved homicides, the department is asking community members to take a few seconds to view the latest video in the department’s ‘Search for Justice’ video series. The video you’re about to watch highlights the case of Kenneth Rackley who was murdered in July of 2010. In the video, Kenneth’s grandmother and BPD Homicide Detective Josh Cummings discuss the circumstances surrounding Kenneth’s murder culminating in a compelling plea to those who may have information which could help investigators crack this case. Said Commissioner Evans, “For the families impacted by violence, we’re gratified to know that this project gives them a voice, a platform and an opportunity to remind people that the pain of losing a loved one lives with them every day as does an equally intense desire to find the person responsible for the murder of their loved one. If someone’s has information, sharing that information could make all the difference in securing justice for the family.”

Community members with any information are asked to call the Homicide Unit at (617) 343-4470. Those who wish to remain anonymous can share information by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1 (800) 494-TIPS (8477) or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463). The Boston Police Department will stringently guard and protect the identity of all those who wish to help this case in an anonymous manner.
