    MA - Bridgewater, Human remains found burned, Nov'13 - Dennis Jackson

    From today's Globe:

    http://www.boston.com/metrodesk/2013...UBK/story.html

    "Authorities are investigating whether there is a connection between burned human remains found in Hyde Park this morning and partial human remains found on fire in a barrel on the grounds of the Department of Correction complex in Bridgewater.

    The two crime scenes are roughly 16 miles apart."

    Wow, lots of stuff happening lately in my stomping grounds!

    This is nuts. bridgewater State is where a lot of nasty criminals are held. Sex offenders, etc. The real nasty ones. That's on the grounds of the complex they're talking about. But other than that, this is a quiet area. Suburban to ..well, not exactly rural, but quiet. Nearby is the Titicut reservation, site of a historic settlement and wetland preserves and trails that I've hiked with my kids many times (in fact, there's a geocache in there, or used to be).

    How in the heck, thou, would someone get on the grounds of the corrections complex with a body and burn it? I've never been that close to the place, but I imagine there's a fence of some kind? Security?

    Brockton Enterprise has this article. Which seems to indicate the remains were in a barrel in the woods *behind* the correctional center grounds?

    Also references our Brockton UID from last week.

    NECN also describes the location as woods behind the facility, off Titicut St.

    And speaking of that Brockton UID, this really isn't all that far from that. Probably unrelated, as the Brockton remains are described as bones, and so are probably older, but still. creepy.

    It's super creepy. Here is the area of HP that they're talking about:

    https://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-...ed=0CCwQxB0wAA

    Also:

    Workers for a landscaping and street repair business that leases space on the property arrived around 7 a.m. today and were surprised to smell what they thought was the odor of an early morning barbecue.

    “But after a while it was a foul smell,’’ said a company employee who asked not to be identified by name because of the ongoing homicide investigation.

    Prompted by the odor, the employee said, workers went to the rear of the one-story building, where they saw a smoldering human torso; the legs, arms and head had been removed.


    AND, possible human remains were found literally around the corner from my house back in September. No updates since then, but the house used to be a funeral parlor and is supposedly now a residence, although it has been boarded up for some time.

    Ok, who dismembers like that HP body is described?! Then sets it on fire! Cripes, that's horrible. A serial killed wouldnt leave the body burning where it would be easily found, IMO. Or someone who has killed in a rage, or heat of passion type thing. They'd hide it. This seems more like a message.

    I'd say it was to prevent identification, but I find that people who set bodies on fire seem to get caught faster because the burning body attracts attention. Who knows?

    Medical examiner works to identify charred remains

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

    By Wesley Lowery | GLOBE STAFF NOVEMBER 16, 2013

    The state medical examiner worked Friday to identify charred remains found earlier in the week in Bridgewater and Hyde Park and to establish cause of death.

    Those efforts were part of a larger investigation spanning two counties to determine if the remains belong to the same person.

    Looks like they're making some progress with this case.

    http://m.newburyportnews.com/TDNN/pm...tguid=uBc7AZPj

    SALISBURY - Three law enforcement officials confirmed that Friday's search of a murder suspect's Liberty Street residence is related to the recent gruesome discovery of burned body parts in Boston and Bridgewater.

    The three law enforcement sources told The Daily News of Newburyport that police are looking into the possibility that the victim, whose identity has not been released, was killed at the Liberty Street house, dismembered and then brought to the Hyde Park and Bridgewater locations.

    Liberty Street, located just off North End Boulevard (Route 1A) was scene of a police operation Friday when more than a dozen state police officers swarmed a three-story beach house hoping to arrest a local man wanted for murder, according to state police.

    Weird! Someone committed the murder up on the north shore, then what? Hopped on 95 to 24 and was dropping and burning body parts along the way??!! wonder if they are still headed south, whoever it is.

    I know nothing about Salisbury - but beach house and that area, I'm guessing pricey place?

    I'm not sure if it would have been weirder to find out the two sets of remains were UNrelated...

    WOW - ok, Fox 25 is claiming an exclusive on this, it has NOT been verified by officials... But they are naming both victim and possible perp here:

    Interesting. If he didn't want to get caught, he probably would have been better off not trying such an elaborate "disposal." If this is correct, at least the victim's family will know what happened to him.
