52 year old male was murdered on 7-11-79 while working at his liquor store at 82 Millbury Street by three unknown suspects. The perpetrators were not caught and the case went unsolved. In 2003 while reviewing the evidence in this case, Lieutenant David Grady located latent prints, which were developed from a carton of cigarettes that were dropped by the killer during the shooting. These latent prints were not mentioned in the written narratives.

In 1979, neither the WPD nor Massachusetts had an AFIS computer. One of these latent prints was searched in the State AFIS computer by Grady, and after 24 years, a suspect was identified. Further investigation determined that the suspect himself had been murdered in Puerto Rico in the 1990s.
