(NECN) – There are new details about the investigation into the person of interest in the Amy Lord murder.
According to the Boston Globe, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said he demoted Jerome Hall-Brewster after learning he failed to return phone calls and e-mails to the crime lab testing evidence in a September case involving Edwin Alemany.
Boston Police said last week Brewster did not believe he had probable cause to arrest Alemany.
That's even though a woman who was attacked grabbed the perpetrator's wallet, which contained Alemany's identification card.
