Detective in Alemany case ignored calls, says Davis

Crime lab got no answers in ’12 assault case

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said he took the rare step of stripping an officer of his detective badge after learning that the officer had failed to return phone calls and e-mails from the crime lab testing evidence in the case of a woman who was choked until she passed out.

The suspect in that September 2012 case, Edwin Alemany, is now being investigated in the brutal stabbing of Amy E. Lord, 24, who was mourned at a funeral Mass in Wilbraham Tuesday, one week after she was killed. Alemany has been arrested in assaults on two other women in South Boston in the same 24-hour period.
