Box 13, Wilbraham, MA 01095-0013; or to The Friends of Mike Farrell, P.O. Box 963, Wilbraham, MA 01095.

Last week, police identified 28-year-old Edward Alemany as the only "person of interest" in Lord's murder.

Though Boston Police are not classifying Alemany as a suspect yet because they are waiting for DNA evidence, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said things are progressing.

"We are confident and comfortable that we're on the right track in this case," said Commissioner Davis.

Davis also said the Boston Police are moving full force at bringing Lord's killer to justice.

Alemany is undergoing a court-ordered 20-day psychiatric evaluation at Bridgewater State Hospital in Bridgewater, MA.
