The criminal record of Edwin Alemany

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis called it “incredibly frustrating” that Edwin Alemany, the person of interest in the killing of 24-year-old Amy Lord, was a free man despite a long criminal record. Alemany, 28, has faced more than 30 criminal charges since his 18th birthday. Alemany was charged in two other violent attacks on the same day Lord was killed.
