Update: Boston police to charge Boston Strangler in Mary Sullivan’s death
UPDATE: Boston Police just announced on their website that Albert DeSalvo, known as the Boston Strangler, was in fact responsible for the death of Mary Sullivan.
“Now, some 50 years later, the miracle of science and DNA evidence has put law enforcement officers in a position to formally charge the Boston Strangler with the murder of Mary Sullivan,” BPDNews.com reports.
Earlier today, police said significant developments in the case of the Boston Strangler are on the horizon.
WBZ-TV is reporting that authorities found significant new evidence in the case, which saw 13 murders of women ranging in ages from 19 to 65 in the early 1960′s.
The Boston Police and Suffolk County DA will hold a presser at 11 a. m. Thursday to discuss the “new developments.”
Relatives of multiple victims were called to meet with authorities this morning.
More to come.
