    I would think that in situations such as these it would be first come first served. I could understand postponing if there were others and cause of death was not known or highly suspected but in both of these cases police are saying one was stabbed and two were shot.

      I think it comes down to them having a better suspect in the shooting, so they want to get that one out of the way so it can get to court quicker.

    This building is a prime example of the sort of place that would be subject to the responsible landlord ordinance. Having the police visit an apartment building 22 times in a single year is outrageous, makes the property a blight on the neighborhood and obviously requires the landlord to be held accountable.

      Right, because the tenants have no responsibility. Where, may I ask, do you expect the people who are causing the 22 visits supposed to live? This landlord kicks them out and they become some other landlord’s “responsibility”.

        These tenants may enjoy moving to Brockton, Mass.
        I know I would enjoy it if they moved to Brockton.

        Maybe some time in a hospital or a jail?

        So then I ask…what did the original landlord do to deserve them being their problem forever?

    • Anonymous

      I’m assuming that you are a big supporter of the local ordinance that is taking hold in some southern Maine cities. So lets say that landlords are held accountable and then stop renting to people they see as a potential problem. Over a period of time how do you think that will affect the ever growing homeless population? Then how do you think that will affect crime. People who are homeless tend to get desperate. Desperate people with nothing to lose will resort to almost anything. I know so then we can lock them up in an already overpopulated correctional system. So then what happens to all those children these people may have? You have this all figured out don’t you?

        But they can not stop renting to them that would be discrimination and under various State and Federal laws illegal, and State and Federal law trumps local ordinance.
        So sorry, won’t work.

      if you would force every landlord to evict every tenant that causes problems, you better plan on converting the Cross Center into a homeless shelter

    Can’t the Corronors office handle two cases at one time? Ducky gets 3 or 4 done in under an hour.

  • A woman no longer has her husband but all people want to do is make stupid comments. I’m starting to agree with the person who said they should disable comments on this site.

    I don’t do the prayer thing but I hope the woman and her family can find peace.

    Edit: I’m disappointed to read this story did involve drugs, which her husband was using as well but it still doesn’t mean horrible things need to be said. A child will be born never knowing their father which is a tragedy all by itself.

      Thank you Kevin that woman is my cousin

      Sadly, the chain of events that led to his death was the result of his own actions. Allegedly they moved to Bangor to escape crack, their “drug of choice”. She contradicted herself in the 2 stories that quoted her. I agree about the crude comments that some posters make; there’s no constructive value in them. At the same time, many folks are just so sick of the drug problem that they have become hardened to it. And many share my opinion that in this case as in many others, the only compassion we feel is for the next door neighbors, trying to bring up a family next to a drug house. I am sorry for the loss of life, and I abhor some of the comments made. Someone lost a son, brother, husband, friend etc. We make our own luck in life. And if we take the path of drug use and abuse, we can expect an early and untimely demise. That’s a given.

    Something tells me it is either drugs or alcohol .

      If you only knew what goes on down in that section of town, you’d instantly become a neocon republican. Bath salts abuse, alcoholics, methadone patients, section 8 housing tenets, TANF, SNAP, landlords who spend rent money on beer and cigarettes who themselves are alcoholics and can’t pay for heating oil, overpriced, delapidated apartments that haven’t seen a code enforcement officer in decades…well you get the picture.

      Good research on your part! I wondered why his name sounded so familiar.

  • Thank You Kevin!! He was a great man and would have done anything for anyone. He always put people first and never thought of himself!! Thank you everyone for the prayers

    I knew Jeff Leblanc. He has a twin brother. I went to elementary school with them in boxborough and they got kicked out of high school in acton. They were both wicked bad kids, always committing crimes and beating people up. I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner.
