A mutilated body was found in an upscale Milton neighborhood on Monday night. Police told the Boston Globe that the mutilation was extensive and gruesome. Residents are shocked that the body was found in their neighborhood, and police are looking into the possibility that the body was dumped there.
The victim was apparently a five-foot-five black man with an athletic build. He has not been identified and his fingerprints don’t match any of those in the state’s criminal record database. He wasn’t wearing a shirt or shoes when his body was found, and he had no wallet on him.
As the homicide count continues to rise, pressure will mount on law enforcement, especially when horrific crimes start happening in upscale suburbs where people think they are safe. When this kind of pressure mounts, it increases the urgency of investigations and injustice can result.
