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 view the latest case spotlighted in our Search for Justice Video Series. The video you’re about to view highlights the case of Amin Bell, 18, who was murdered in July of 1995 outside the Orchard Park Housing Development in Roxbury. In the video, Amin’s sister, Nichole Bell, and BPD Homicide Detective Kevin Pumphret discuss the facts and circumstances surrounding Amin’s death culminating in an appeal to those who have information which, if shared, could help investigators solve this case. 

Said Police Commissioner William Evans, “As always, we encourage anyone with information to call our investigators with the understanding that it’s never too late to help. For the families impacted by violence, like the family of Amin Bell, we believe this project gives them 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 strong desire to find the person responsible for the murder of their loved one.” 

Community members with any information relative to Amin Bell’s homicide 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 those who wish to remain anonymous.
