The four children involved in this situation were taken into the custody of the Department of Children and Families. According to the Boston Herald, Gov. Maura Healy said, “We’ll do everything we can to provide them support and services. The matter is being investigated, obviously. I will do, and our administration will do, whatever we can to lend support with any investigation.”

City Councilor Erin Murphy to the Herald she filed a hearing order to address what happened and will be discussed on June 28th.

Original Post:

Over the weekend, rumors circulated on social media involving a bizarre case at the Mary Ellen McCormack Housing Development.  On Monday night, the Boston Herald reported that BPD and BFD were called to Old Colony Ave around 11am on Saturday for a person in cardiac arrest.  In addition, to a man found dead in the apartment, first responders also discovered alcohol, drugs, sex toys, and four children, ages 5 to 10, living in deplorable conditions – initially being hidden from police and fire.

The report created by the BFD who responded found the following:

“The apartment was in extremely unsanitary conditions. Approximately 6 adults, who appeared to be males, were seen in the apartment,” they wrote, saying they subsequently found “four children in the back bedroom being hidden by an adult male from first responders.”

The report went on the state the adults were unhelpful to first responders and initially denied that children were in the apartment.

BFD filed a 51A form –  a form via the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families that allows one to Report of Child(ren) Alleged to be Suffering from Abuse or Neglect.

City Councilor Michael Flaherty, Public Safety chairman on the council, told the Herald the man found on the floor was “from an apparent overdose.” Many sources also told the Herald that some of the adults were dressed as women when BPD and BFD arrived on the scene.

As of Tuesday morning, no charges or identities of the people in the apartment have been provided.  It is unclear if the children found in the apartment were related to any of the men.

    Just a thought… this title is kind of misleading when you consider that there are four children involved. That’s the reality here. It’s not “strange” and intriguing… it’s horrible and sad.

    so where the children removed? There’s no mention of anything more than a report being taken.

    The 6 slime bags in the apartment should be all thrown in jail for this crime. Who has 4 small kids in this situation unless they were going to do bad things to them.

    Why isn’t the news media banging down the doors of Mayor Wu, Kenzie Bok, Boston Police, and every other elected official that has chosen to remain silent? I don’t know if the bigger question is what was going on in this apartment or why the mayor and Kenzie Bok have gone silent about it.

      …names started with a 0’ or a Mc you could bet your bottom dollar they’d be cameras from ALL OVER THE WORLD descending on us. But…obviously not the case . Which, in my estimation, is EXACTLY why this was allowed to continue. NOBODY wants to get involved anymore for fear of being “cancelled “. Or sued. Or incarcerated. “NYC Subway Vigilante”, anyone?

      We’re all done as a country.

      We’re all done.

        I am guessing you mean that the trannies were all black? Protected, sainted victims of oppression, every last one of them. They know they were just reading bedtime stories to those children. And that’s why we will never get details of this case…from the American press. Whatever the facts, I guarantee you it is likely to be much more sordid than anyone can imagine. Try the Daily Mirror or other London based conservative tabloid if you want to know any of the facts in this case.

    “Strange case” is one way to phrase it. Absolutely disgusting

    The six adults who appeared to be male. Say what it was. Trans drug attacks with sex toys and children. Whose children were they anyway? We’re the children abused? Where is the bigger headline for this story and why is there no mention of arrests? Horribly written story. We can’t report crime during Pride month with a gay Governor?

      It was mentioned originally that the 6 men were cross-dressers. Why has thus been removed?

    Mayor Wu has to step up and fund phase one, the community center of Mary Ellen McCormack, The BBPA and BHA has to sign off on the commencement of construction by Winn Development. In the interim the city should fund Winn management to assume property management. Go to Mission Main to observe how Winn turned that disaster around. Mixed income developments, including work force housing is the answer. The BHA has proven under resourced and incompetent at managing real estate,

      If there’s anything the left has taught me since 2016, it’s that some groups DESERVE to be oppressed, and the more we see stories like this, the more I’m convinced that I know which groups deserve to be oppressed. It’s democrat voters, democrat politicians, and any member of the transgender “community” which, let’s be honest, they’re all just psychotic, drug-addicted PEDOPHILES. We used to KILL pedophiles in this country. Not judicially or in an execution room, I mean we used to simply find out where they lived, dragged them into the street, and killed them right then and there. What lines need to be crossed for society to return to killing pedophiles? I’m not fucking around, I’m seriously asking. When do we start killing these people?

        Is there a place for a few good ol’ southie guys to take care of the creeps ?
        No violence, they just won’t be seen again.
        As an original southie guy I can tell you that violence was at a minimum amongst our own, when an idiot got out of line he lost some blood and some teeth, that usually took care of the issue.
        These days,. without the real guys around,…taking creeps off the streets is gonna be a challenge obviously.,
        Ain’t this so WU ?
        The town (Southie) can’t save itself since it was gentrified.
        Boys with tattoos, earrings and beards need to become men now,…right now !
        GET THEM OUT !!!

      This has absolutely NOTHING to do with a construction company. It has to do with investigating the applicants backgrounds before allowed into a housing devopment. It has to do with neighbors speaking up when they see or hear anything out of the usual. It has to do with BHA monitoring what is going on in each and every development, each and every unit. I raised my girls in Mary Ellen McCormick housing. It was a great place. The City of Boston representatives have let our town, especially housing, be run into the ground. The city workers are not doing their jobs. Anyplace they think they can make money off of by selling they allow the disrepair and let go to pot. If they cannot handle the amount of units now how are they going to handle double the amount? It is time for our supposed representatives to stop stealing the public housing from the Lower middle class / poor and handing it over to the rich-like Old Colony! Mary Ellen McCormick has a fantastic setting, beautiful trees, nice housing- when it was taken care of. It is time for our government officials to put some effort into the jobs they were voted to do, NOT sell out public property to the lowest bidder ( or buddy). Clean up and oust the the undesirable elements, of which there are many. D St Project’s also need to be cleaned out. Changing the name to “West Broadway ” Development does not change what is going on there. Putting a bow on it doesn’t work..Wake up and start getting our City representatives to do their job, not sellout to Winn

    Get the two city councilors that live in housing REMOVED NOW ! This is what happens to a beloved community like ours that has turned ignorant whether it be in the projects or in condos where people can’t be bothered to be involved or care about their neighbors . I think we used to call it southie pride where we took care of each other !

    headline should read “5 men in drag found with 1 dead man and 4 male young children hidden in back room with drugs, alcohol and sex toys everywhere during Pride Month!”

    Remember the days before rabid capitalism, ie. Gentrification.?
    It would’ve been “take a creep for a ride night”…done, no more problems .
    Sorry but I’m in my 60’s now and was priced out of my home town 30+ years ago ..sad stuff to hear that Southie ain’t ever coming back.
    The families who have remained I feel for you, it’s a sad, sad story.
    I have always held faith that we could move back in someday, to retire with the best friends, neighbors and families on the face of Gods good earth.
    To walk the beach, bump into anyone from anywhere in Southie, and roar with laughter at stories about folks from days passed and present.
    Along Broadway, down the side streets, from A st. to the Farragut statue., there was always someone.
    Sad, pain in my heart, and I’m not alone by any stretch… especially hearing all this bad news.
    It’s gone, all gone.
    Boy this really hurts in my pure Southie heart.
    You new folks are going to have your work cut out for you with these kinds of issues, … you just don’t have the spirit to develop a tight knit community like Southie.
    I believe some of you wish there were more true southie people around when things like this happen…I’m I wrong ?
