    Please get involved, Deanna's family is pleading for your help in drawing attention to her case. Please help us show Deanna is not going to be easily forgotton! This website will give you any information you may need http://deannacremin.bravehost.com

    Online Petition

    Official Website
    Deanna was a gentle,caring,giving young girl who was murdered 2 blocks from being safely in her home. Someone violently ripped her away and there is evidence and DNA. What we need is to pressure the DA's office, and the police to open the investigation. There is too much that was not done, that must be done. We don't care about the past mistakes, we jsut want them ammended and the investigation done right. The DA was confident in 2004, after 10 years, that they would finally make an arrest. They held a press conference and annonced as much, yet we have no answers.Please get involved and help to ease the pain, show then people do care. Thank You!!

    Here's the UM site with more information:

    On a side note, has anyone questioned the boyfriend's friends? I highly doubt that if he killed her he would keep it to himself. I think he would've told someone. And how about the place he got food from? He may have had receipts but that doens't mean he was there when the food was delivered. Maybe the food delivery person remembers something? How about the friend he went to see that night? Maybe they can be pressured into talking?

    His best friend Jay L was questioned along with him in front of a grand jury, we were told that they took the 5th by someone who worked in the courthouse.

    I cant even get the police, or DA to return phne calls, email, or letters. I wanted to go over everything, and also find out why they announced they woul have an arrest in 2004, but then left my Aunt and family hanging. They are either backed up, or totally ignoring me.It has been a month and a half.

    I just wanted to say Thank You to anyone who helped and/or signed the petition. I also wanted to update this it has been a while. I became very busy and lost track of some things. There was a march for Deanna in October of 2006. It was very succesful and hopefully we will have another this year. Maybe we will have answers by then. It will be 12 years in March and it has been too long. Someone needs to pay for this and Deanna's family and friends will not rest until that day comes. We know there is scientific evidence, possibly a witness, and people that Deanna's murderer confessed to. I highly doubt he covered Deanna's murder up by himself, it's not very likely. Someone out there knows something and hopefully they have a conscience and will come forward. How can anyone live with themselves knowing this information. I know the day will come, the only question is when it will come. Deanna would be turning 29 this March, God only knows what her life would have been like had she not been robbed of it. I wish those of you who never knew her got the chance. She was such a wonderful person, always smiling and sweet. Thanks for all your help.

    I read that deanna was found outside but I cannot find out anything else, how do you think it was covered up? Do you mean by getting rid of evidence or covering up by not saying anything to anyone? I am sorry I am confused.

    There was also an article in the 3/29/2015 Boston Herald...

    New clue found in unsolved 1995 slaying of Deanna Cremin

    Sunday, March 29, 2015
    Erica Moura

    A grieving Somerville mother’s hopes have been renewed after authorities said this week there’s a new clue in the case of her teenage daughter found murdered 20 years ago tomorrow.

    “Maybe this is the year,” said Katherine Cremin. “March is a very difficult time. We deal with it the best we can.”

    Deanna Cremin last spoke to her mother on March 29, 1995, over the phone. They ended the conversation with “I love you.”

    Her body was found the next day less than a block from her Jacques Street home, four days after her 17th birthday. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted.

    “The case is still an open and very active investigation,” said Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan, who added that within the past six months, “Let’s just say there’s been, very recently, there’s been some advances in the case.” Ryan would not comment further.

    i live in Somerville and saw a new reward sign up for information on Deanna's murder out on Temple St. made me very sad to think that her mom still doesn't know what happened to her daughter. so i thought i'd bump the thread. i'll try to look up some things later today hopefully and see if i can find anything interesting.

    She was sexually assaulted so I winder if they found DNA that didn't match her boyfriend and that's why he seems to be off the radar?

    yeah to be honest i'm still not even clear on whether they actually ever RAN the forensics. Coakley said they finally would a few years back but i still can't tell if they actually did. i'm using a hotspot right now but i'm hoping when i have wifi i can look through news articles and whatnot from 1995 and see what case details i can pull up.

    I tried looking for anything and I just pretty much got the same story with each one I found. Nothing! [emoji53]

    These kinds of cases suck when it seems like LE could care a little more.
