Police search Sutton Street home in Mattapan
BOSTON -- Police are searching a home belonging to one of the victims in the Mattapan murders on Friday.
After guarding the home for two days, Boston Police finally entered the Sutton Street home around 11 a.m. with a search warrant. They were looking for evidence to find who’s responsible for the murders of four people, including a toddler and his mother who were shot dead.
Police are searching the home of Simba Martin, who was one of the murder victims.
“They're in house today and gathering some information they need to go forward with this case,” said Mayor Tom Menino.
At least two of the men were found naked when they were shot, and it was believed that their clothes and other vital pieces of evidence could have been in that home.
Mayor Menino briefed Governor Deval Patrick over lunch in Mattapan Square to update him on the case, saying that the public has been forthcoming with information, but they still need more.
“It's community work with police to solve the crime. Police can't do it alone,” said Mayor Menino.
In return, the governor offered the full support of the state.
“Police have been working hard on it. I know that because I’m in regular touch with the mayor and the commissioner. The state police are right at their side as is the FBI,” said Governor Deval Patrick.
After searching the home on Sutton Street, police have made an arrest in Manchester, New Hampshire.
