Justice Served: More than 30 Years after Dora Brimage’s Murder, the Man Responsible is Found Guilty of First Degree Murder

Justice Served: More than thirty years after Dora Brimage’s murder, the man responsible is found guilty of First Degree Murder

More than thirty years after the murder of 19-year-old Dora Jean Brimage, the man responsible for her death will spend the remainder of his life behind bars. Today, March 16, 2018, a Suffolk Superior Court jury found James Paige, 51, guilty of First-Degree Murder in Dora Brimage’s 1987 slaying. Paige faces a mandatory term of life in prison without the possibility of parole. In September of 1987, officers responded to a Warren Street construction site where Brimage’s body was located. For years after the crime, investigators were unable to identify a suspect. That all changed in 2013 when investigators assigned to the Boston Police Cold Case Squad asked for new testing of DNA evidence collected from Brimage’s body. Armed with the new sample, Criminalists at the Boston Police Crime Lab were able to produce a DNA profile of the man responsible for Brimage’s murder. After the new information was entered into the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, the killer’s DNA profile was matched to James Paige who had been required to submit a DNA sample as a result of a felony conviction in an unrelated incident. That led to a renewed investigation by Boston Police Cold Case Detectives and prosecutors assigned to the Suffolk DA's Homicide Unit which them led to Paige's indictment in 2016. 

Per Commissioner William Evans: “A conviction more than three decades after the original crime was committed should send a strong, clear message that no victim is ever forgotten by the men and women of the Boston Police Department. In the case of Dora Brimage, our Homicide detectives, working closely with our Crime Lab, never stopped searching for her killer so that justice could be served in her name. For their hard work, long hours, and never-quit approach to this case, I am especially grateful. And to those who knew and loved Dora, it is my sincere hope that news of today’s conviction provides for them some small measure of comfort and closure.”
