‘Working tirelessly’: Authorities investigating ‘suspicious’ death in Framingham

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Authorities are investigating a suspicious death after a man was found dead inside a home with apparent trauma to his body, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Thursday afternoon.

At approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a residence on Fenwick Street after receiving an anonymous 911 call.

When police officers arrived, they found a dead male inside the home with apparent trauma to his body. A search warrant was later executed at the residence, Ryan said.

“At this time, there is no reason to believe there is any danger to the public,” Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker said in a videotaped message on social media on Wednesday.

Baker said his department is working closely with the state police and Ryan’s office to investigate.

“Please know that with every case of this nature, the Bureau of Investigative Services is working tirelessly to bring this case to a close,” Baker said.

Neighbors described the unusual scene Wednesday night.

“Late last night, there were still some cruisers over there with their lights on,” said neighbor Angelina Portuense. “They put up some crime scene tape and early morning, I want to say about 1 a.m., there were some vans, lights lit up and people walking around outside.”

Janet Kennedy, who lives down the street, says she never sees people going in or out of the Fenwick Street residence.

“It was always the same type of cars that were in the driveway, they didn’t move,” she said. “Here, you see it’s only three houses, but a lot of traffic,” she said. “Nobody notices. They’re all trying to get home, pick up their kids.”

An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is pending to identify the victim and to determine the cause of death.

State Police detectives assigned to Ryan’s office and Framingham Police are investigating.
