On Monday August 2, 2021, MBTA Transit Police and Boston Police Officers responded to a makeshift shelter hidden in the rafters of the Back Bay MBTA Station for reports of a woman’s body that had been discovered. When Officers arrived they found the body of 30-year-old Jessica Lynch, of South Boston, who Police have still not publicly identified but has been confirmed to us by friends and family.
Her body was found, according to sources, in what can only be described as a makeshift studio, up a 20 foot ladder, complete with electricity, air conditioning and bedding. Many questions remained unanswered regarding how she died, prompting the Boston Police Homicide Unit and Crime Scene Response Unit being called in to investigate.
Boston Firefighters were also called in due to the hazardous nature of where the body was located. Wearing full Tyvek bodysuits, firefighters had to complete a difficult technical removal of the body down the almost 30 foot ledge in order for the medical examiners office to take possession of the corpse. It took nearly five hours to finish the daunting task of safely removing the body as well as carefully processing the scene and surrounding evidence.
Although the Boston Police Department could only confirm that the Transit Police were handling the investigation, Transit Officers and detectives were seen the following week taking at least one man into custody in relation to her death, and have been actively searching for another female who is also believed to be related. Nothing further has been released or confirmed, however family and friends who reached out to Live Boston are worried that justice will not be served.
