Man accused in Amy Lord’s murder indicted

The man charged with the kidnapping and murder of a young South Boston woman last summer was indicted Friday in that killing, as well as attacks on three other women, including a 2012 assault that police have acknowledged might have led to an earlier arrest if it had been investigated more thoroughly.

Nearly 10 months before Edwin J. Alemany allegedly killed Amy Lord, a 24-year-old digital marketer who was kidnapped on her way to a gym, Alemany assaulted a Mission Hill woman and left behind his wallet and a baseball hat, police said. The hat had traces of DNA that was “strongly consistent” with Alemany’s DNA, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said Friday.
