on Tuesday

The body of a young woman found Tuesday in a the Hyde Park Stony Reservation was identified as South Boston resident Amy Lord.  She was 24 years old.

According to Boston police reports, Lord left early Tuesday morning from her Dorchester Street apartment to go to the gym.  A man forced her into her car and made her to withdraw money from an ATM.  Lord was stabbed multiple times and her body left in Hyde Park.  Her car was found later on fire on Logan Way in South Boston. 

No one has been arrested yet. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Amy Lord.

Be safe Southie.

    Massachusetts requires residents to pay a $25 fee (and in some places an additional $20 ‘fingerprinting fee”) and get a special FID (Firearms Identification Card) card to purchase pepper spray legally. In Boston, you must go In person to Boston Police Headquarters during business hours to obtain this, then wait two to three weeks for processing.


    If you are not a legal resident of Massachusetts – which applies to many students – there is no provision in this law for a “non-resident FID”. You must apply for a non-resident license to carry firearms: which requires a training course and costs $100 per year for the license.

    It is legal in every other state in America. Some people are simply driving to RI or NH and buying it there. If you are thinking about this, realize that under the gun laws passed in 1998, pepper spray is treated as “ammunition. 

    Pepper spray is classified as ammunition under state gun laws passed in 1998. Penalties for possession without a license are: “Chapter 269, Section 10(h)(1) Whoever owns, possesses or transfers a firearm, rifle, shotgun or ammunition without complying with the provisions of section 129C of chapter 140 shall be punished by imprisonment in a jail or house of correction for not more than 2 years or by a fine of not more than $500.

    No one is taking your gun away or proposing to.

    A lot of these “newcomers” have no street smarts. Living in Southie is more than “Top 5”, “Weekend Picks”, parades and parties down the Seaport. Caught in Southie should stop the nonsense and tell cityliving  like it is. OK now, who wants to go out for some chicken and waffles?

    Um, yes, there are. More than a dozen legislators in the Massachusetts Legislature are proposing to do just that.

    Hey ,

    Can you explain your comment a bit more? What did CIS do wrong here?
    Also , because she was a “newcomer” that is why she was murdered?
    Are you stating murder only takes place in the city?
    How about you have so respect for this poor girl and her family . This
    Is not the time or place for you to be judging “newcomers” .
