BOSTON (AP/WHDH) — Boston police have made an arrest in the 2015 killing of a Framingham man at a hospital.
Police say Hameen Edwards, of Dorchester, was taken into custody Friday on an active murder warrant for the death of 50-year-old John Duggie.
Police say staff members at Arbour Hospital in the city’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood found Edwards kneeling over Duggie, who had suffered a head wound, on July 2, 2015. Duggie died of his injuries a month later.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said in a release sent out Saturday, “This shows that my detectives never forget a single victim. Whether it takes two days or two years, they work extremely hard every day to bring justice for the victims and their families.”
Edwards is due in court on Monday. It couldn’t be determined Saturday if he has an attorney.
