Officials Ask for Help in Finding Next of Kin in Massachusetts Remains Case

Investigators have not been able to locate the next of kin for three sets of remains that were recovered from a Weymouth, Massachusetts, storage unit and are asking for the public's help.

The three sets of remains have been identified as: William J. McDougall, 67-years-old at time of death, from Kelso, Washington, was a resident of St. Joseph Nursing Center in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood; Maggie Moore, 65-years-old at time of death, from Alabama, was a resident of Annemark Nursing Home in Revere, Massachusetts. Said Waddy, 90-years-old at time of death, from Virginia, was a resident of Bay Pointe Rehab in Brockton, Massachusetts.

The remains of McDougall, Moore, and Waddy are three of the 12 bodies discovered in July during an investigation into O'Donnell and Mulry Funeral Home in Boston's Dochester neighborhood. All of the bodies have since been identified.

A Suffolk County grand jury returned the 278-count indictment against 56-year-old Joseph O'Donnell of Mattapan last month. Charges against him include improperly storing bodies and stealing thousands of dollars in pre-payment funds.
