Victims’ family members express outrage at verdict in Mattapan massacre case
Family members of the victims in the Mattapan massacre were outraged after the jury’s acquittal today of Edward Washington and failure to reach verdicts on the murder charges against Dwayne Moore. As the verdicts were being read, Ebony Flonory, the sister of Eyanna Flonory, began screaming, cursing the outcome. She lunged forward and had to be restrained by court officers who dragged her out. Several minutes later, a stream of family members emerged from the courthouse and screamed at the two defense attorneys, who were being interviewed by reporters.
