    MA - Amy Lord, 24, abducted & murdered, Boston, 23 July 2013

    HYDE PARK, Mass. (WHDH) -- Sources told 7News 24-year-old Amy Lord of South Boston woman, whose body was found in Hyde Park Tuesday afternoon, was kidnapped at knifepoint and forced to withdraw money from an ATM before she was killed.

    Investigators have been on the scene nonstop since Tuesday afternoon after a man riding a bicycle came across the victim’s body in a thickly-wooded area of the Stony Brook Reservation.

    7News is awaiting confirmation that a car fire in South Boston is related to this case.

    Thanks for the links.
    I'm surprised there isn't more information and more interest in this case.

    Once more, this is so scarey and so very sad..........

    I offer my heartfelt sympathies to Amy's family

    From your Boston CBS link Surfie (thanks for posting):

    "The attack was just one of three in the same South Boston neighborhood within a 24-hour period. Boston police say another woman was stabbed and a third punched in the hours leading up to Lord’s kidnapping and murder. Both managed to escape. A man was in custody and facing charges for one of those attacks. Boston police were looking into the incidents, but said they were not willing to say whether there was a connection."

    my niece lives down the street from the Lord family and is friendly with one of the younger sisters, such a tragedy. by all accounts Amy was a true standout type of person, a kind girl that excelled at so many things.

    i hope this "edwin alemany" that they have in custody is the sole perpetrator, but the local news this morning leaves me unsure, there was one report yesterday that implied two suspects.

    hopefully since they went to 5 banks there are plenty of images to help them figure these things out.

    they held a vigil in town last night and it was the worst i have ever felt, just overwhelming despair and anger. i have felt sick to my stomach and actually sore in my entire body since and for just the second time in my life my mind wandered earlier and i thought it wouldnt be the worst idea to attend a hearing for this man and try to get my hands around his neck.

    the only other time i felt like that was when the story came out regarding what happened to brooke bennett. dont worry, it was a fleeting thing and i have no intention of doing anything of the sort.

    RIP

    oh, to be clear - this edwin alemany person has been charged in a separate attack, and is suspected in a third attack, but has not been officially charged in this case yet. (all 3 attacks were on women and in that general area)

    hopefully it is just a matter of being thorough and that will happen soon.

    the new information is that she was initially assaulted inside her apartment;

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/201...hYP/story.html

    i had wondered why the security image of her they had been showing had her face partially blocked out, thinking now it was probably to hide injuries.

    every time i see that security image of her getting out of the car i keep thinking "RUN please RUN!" , but i had to answer that question from my niece this morning and it isnt hard to come up with a scenario where she would could be fooled into thinking it is in her best interest not to try to run.

    still no arrest, the suspect in the other attacks is to be arraigned for those charges sometime today.

    also new information is that the police have said there is just one suspect involved in this crime, which bolsters my hopes that they know they have their man and are just locking down the details.

    looks like the suspect they have in custody is no stranger to stealing cars, or the BPD:

    Oh I'm so sorry. She sounds like such a lovely girl. I'm also surprised this isn't getting more coverage.

    that robbery story is from april 2010... won't let me edit my post for some reason

    truly this is one of the saddest stories i have read about in a while, especially on the heels of the brenna machus abduction/murder... how is it that in 2013 young women cannot even go about their daily business in daylight hours and be safe?

    alemany has had a psych eval ordered after his lawyer claims he does not appear competent. im not feeling very sympathetic this morning...

    competent enough to know how to get the most out of his crime by going to several ATM's...

    competent enough to know he was committing crimes as evidenced by his multiple attempts to hide his actions...

    my guess is that he grabber her on her way out of her building heading to the gym. i am surprised that he took her back inside to beat her, seems riskier than just gettingh er in the car and going. did he luck out that she happened to be leaving when he walked by or did he learn her routine?

    i am also surprised she lives alone (guessing thats the case since she was assaulted in her apartment and no one else was reported attacked there). i live in the same city, am nearly 30 and have a professional job and if i wasnt married, i'd certainly still have roommates. i couldnt afford to live alone in any place i would have felt safe doing so. wondering where in Southie her place was. There are some areas that are safer than others...
