‘Beautiful in every way’: Friend describes Millbury man found dead in home as suspect faces judge

MILLBURY, Mass. – An investigation is underway in Millbury after a man was found dead inside a home at 303 Millbury Ave.

“Dare I say he was like a big brother to me,” said Madison Adams, who stopped by the house Monday morning to leave flowers. “Amazing, musical, beautiful in every way. That was him.”

Police were called to the home around 3 p.m. Saturday. Another man inside the house, 33-year-old Kevin Donnellan, called 911, according to court documents.

Donnellan was found suffering from apparent self-inflicted stab wounds and was taken to UMass Memorial Hospital, the documents indicated.

Donnellan was arraigned Monday in Worcester Central District Court on a charge of aggravated assault and battery.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was found suffering from “obvious trauma to the neck region” with “red brown stains” on his body, investigators said.

Early said Donnellan and the victim knew each other, but he would not elaborate on their relationship.

A text message the victim sent to another person is said to have shown that he feared Donnellan would kill him

“It’s so much of a shock,” Adams added. “I hope they find out what really went down and I hope he gets the charges that fit the bill.”

An investigation remains ongoing.
