Jared Remy, accused murderer and son of famed Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, dictated two letters from prison and had them sent to Boston Herald writers, according to the paper.
The Herald reported that columnist Margery Eagan received a letter on Wednesday in which Jared Remy lashed out against her for publishing “slander” about his family. The letter was reportedly dictated by Remy and penned by an inmate who goes by “BIG E.” In a letter riddled with errors, Remy allegedly told Eagan to “leave my mom & DaD and Doughter out of this.”
On April 1, Eagan wrote a column for the Herald in which she criticized Jerry Remy’s parenting, as well as his decision to return to NESN as the Red Sox’ color analyst. Remy’s letter was an apparent response to that column.
The Boston Herald reported:
"I did expect you to talk all kinds of unfactful negitiveity, about me. but it was below the belt to include my family, in my aleged duing" the heavily misspelled April 21 letter states. "one they have 1) no crimanal history, 2) and are not crimanals."
Eagan also objected to the Remys’ attempts to gain custody of Jared Remy’s daughter Arianna, despite the fact that their son had been charged in the murder his girlfriend and Arianna’s mother, Jennifer Martel.
"Go (expletive) yourself ... at least thay dident have to (expletive) and (expletive) to hold the jobe you have now," the letter states. "whats the next thing your gonna say about me I was verberly ausalting you in this letter only 30 day time served ......"
Eagan responded to the letter in her column on Friday:
... this sad, bizarre, obscenity-laced letter gave me a firsthand perspective on how Jared Remy treats women who make him angry -- like the four women he beat and the fifth he allegedly slaughtered. He demeans, insults and bullies them.
A letter was also sent to Herald reporter Laurel Sweet, who interviewed Remy back in October. In it, Remy claims that Sweet only got “one side to the story,” and offers additional information “for a price.”
The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office verified that the letters were transcribed on Remy’s behalf, but “declined to say how Jared Remy dictated the letter, or why he did not write it himself,” according to the Herald.
The Boston Herald published full-text scans of both letters, which reportedly contain “at least 55 spelling errors.”Reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow me @josephdussault.
