Boston police are “real close” to determining who kidnapped and fatally stabbed 24-year-old South Boston resident Amy Lord, Boston Police Superintendent William Evans said Sunday, as officials prepared to hold a community meeting Monday evening to address citizens’ fears.
“It’s progressing very well . . . I’m confident we’re headed in the right direction,” Evans said in a phone interview.
Among the evidence being gathered is footage from surveillance cameras, he said, with additional clues sought from DNA evidence, fingerprints, and Lord’s car, which was discovered burning on a South Boston street hours before she was found dead in a wooded area Tuesday.
Evans said he and other officials will discuss the case’s latest details and try to alleviate residents’ fears at the meeting tonight.
