  1. I’m trying to picture how someone gets their head into a kettle bell, must have had a small head.

  2. Has there been any updates on this or is it being swept under the rug like everything else that happens in Southie. The developers of these million dollar condos don’t want this is in the news!

    • Suicides are almost always swept under the rug. What murderer goes through the trouble of getting a kettle bell around someones neck to sink the evidence….in the fort point channel for that matter? It’s a suicide.

  3. Sounds like another cover-up. Rumors are this was a murder, and the residients have a right to know for sure.
