Large crowd, but few answers in Lord case SRO. Hundreds show up to get answers from officials. Hundreds of concerned residents packed into a stuffy South Boston elementary school cafeteria last night wanting answers about a grisly murder that happened one week earlier, just blocks away. Residents were so eager for information on whether an arrest had been made in the stabbing death of 24-year-old Amy Lord that they congregated outside, peering in. “There is a myriad of things that have to be properly processed. I’d love to stand here and say we are charging this individual tonight, but I can not do that,” said Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told crowd. Investigators said Lord was beaten, robbed and stabbed to death early Tuesday and dumped at the Stony Brook reservation in Hyde Park. Davis reassured the crowd that investigators are close to bringing formal charges in the matter, but did not outwardly state whether Edwin Alemany, 28, is who they believe is responsible for the murder. Alemany is the sole person of interest in the case. Last week Alemany was charged with assault with intent to murder in connection with a separate non-fatal stabbing of a woman in South Boston around the time of Lord’s murder. He was also charged with punching a second woman Tuesday. Suffolk County Dan Connolly said Alemany’s non-fatal attacks on women around the time of Lord’s murder show

Crime. Getaway car had 6-year-old girl inside A Lowell man attempted to rob a Manchester, N.H., convenience store on Sunday morning before taking off in a car with a 6-year-old in the backseat, according to police.

register, but another customer interrupted the robbery. Cunneen eventually was forced to stop at a Bedford toll booth, and was arrested with an accomplice — 17-year-old John Hickey, also of Lowell. A 6-year-old girl and her mother were removed from the car at gunpoint. METRO

Applause rang through the tiny cafeteria when he assured residents that Alemany “no longer poses any threat to the citizens of South Boston.” Alemany was brought to Bridgewater State Hospital for a mental health evaluation following his arrest. “In the case of Amy Lord, we can say with absolute certainty that she was an innocent victim,” Connolly said before pleading with anxious residents to be patient with investigators. “We need more time and more room to build the most compelling case possible. [Lord’s] family and friends deserve nothing less.” Suzanne Schlossberg, 23, works in the area, and attended

last night’s meeting to get a sense of how safe it was to walk around. “I’m concerned about the safety here,” said Schlossberg. “I felt fine before. I had no problem working late. … This is really about this recent spate of incidents and wanting to make sure that that’s taken care of.” She is not concerned that charges had not yet been brought as of last night: “I think law enforcement is doing their job. Some will bring charges forward when they think it’s appropriate, when they have evidence to prove that someone did it.”

Prosecution rips into Bulger’s first witness Whitey trial. The defense started presenting its case to the jury yesterday. The first witness called in the defense of alleged mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger was attacked by the prosecution who tried to create a question of credibility in the jurors’ minds. Bulger’s defense team had the chance to present its case yesterday and its first witness was Robert Fitzpatrick, a former assistant special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office. Quoted

“You’re a man who likes to make up stories.” Brian T. Kelly, Assistant U.S. Attorney

During direct questioning by Bulger attorney Hank Brennan, Fitzpatrick testified about being tasked with straightening out “major problems” in the Boston FBI office when he was assigned there in 1981. But Fitzpatrick’s credibility was immediately called into question when Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian T. Kelly asked his first question on cross-examination. “You’re a man who likes to make up stories,” Kelly said. “No,” Fitzpatrick said. Kelly quizzed Fitzpatrick on claims made in his book “Betrayal,” as well as his entire testimony about the actions of corrupt FBI agent John Connolly. Fitzpatrick’s testimony will continue today.

Beth Israel to pay $5.3 million over Medicare billing Settlement. Beth Israel Deaconess agrees to a mult-million payout, but admits no wrongdoing. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will pay more than $5.3 million after the federal government accused the teaching hospital of inappropriately submitting claims to Medicare over a four-year span. U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz announced yesterday that the multi-million-dollar payment settles allegations that the hospital violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicare for inpatient admissions that should have been billed as lower reimbursed outpatient or observation services. The government accused the hospital of inappropriately submitting claims for one-day


stay inpatient admissions for patients with congestive heart failure, chest pain and certain digestive and nutritional disorders. Ortiz claims they should have been billed as observation services as the patients were briefly admitted for the limited purpose of observation and discharged the next day. The hospital has not admitted liability or wrongdoing in connection with the settlement. The hospital released a

statement saying, “The inquiry conducted by the United States had absolutely nothing to do with quality of care provided to patients. Indeed, during the inquiry, BIDMC vigorously defended claims for an inpatient level of service delivered to patients whom physicians had concluded should be admitted to the hospital because of their condition. Under the settlement, BIDMC admits no liability whatsoever. “ Ortiz said the claims were submitted between 2004 and 2008. “[The] settlement furthers two critical purposes: ensuring that precious federal health care dollars are spent appropriately and in accordance with the law, and emphasizing that patient needs, not the bottom line, must be the basis for treatment decisions,” Ortiz said.

Eight people, including three children, were injured in Philadelphia yesterday when an apparent natural gas explosion tore through a row house under renovation, causing the collapse of three houses. Among those injured was a man who was hospitalized with severe burns and listed in critical condition and a child who had suffered minor injuries, the office of Mayor Michael Nutter said in a statement. Residents reported a strong smell of natural gas after the blast and Philadelphia Gas Works crews shut off gas to the area, utility spokeswoman Melanie McCottry said. Hundreds of people watched

as emergency workers and firefighters went about clearing 15 feet of rubble and debris that spilled onto the street from the collapsed home. One resident of the neighborhood, Diane Schaffer, said the smell of gas had permeated the area since early yesterday morning. After the explosion, she put her son and a neighbor’s daughter in her car and fled the area. “I could hear a guy saying, ‘Help me, help me,’ but when I looked back, I saw two guys running towards him, so I felt OK about leaving,” Schaffer said. “We just sped off.” Early last month, a building under demolition in the city collapsed, killing six people and injuring 14.

The collapse caused the evacuation of about 70 homes.


Pope Francis says gays should not be marginalized Catholicism. The 76-year-old Argentine did reaffirm Church teaching that homosexual acts are considered a sin. Pope Francis has said gay people should not be marginalized but integrated into society, in some of the most conciliatory remarks by a pontiff on the issue of homosexuality. In a broad-ranging 80-minute conversation with journalists on the plane bringing him back from a weeklong visit to Brazil on Sunday night, he also said he could not judge gay priests, an emotive topic that divides Catholic opinion. Francis stressed that the Roman Catholic Church’s ban

on women priests was definitive, although he would like them to have more leadership roles in administration and pastoral activities. His forthright tone and readiness to field so many questions underlined Francis’ desire to do things differently. He has eschewed many trappings of the papacy, championed the poor and tackled some of the biggest scandals facing the Church head-on. Francis said there were saints in the Holy See but also “those who are not very saintly.” The airborne encounter with journalists covered issues as varied as the pope’s insistence on low-key security to his desire to unlock the shackles of the Vatican to go for walks. The pope arrived back in Rome yesterday after a triumphant tour of Brazil.

“If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge him?”

Kerry seeks ‘reasonable compromises’ in talks

Amazon unveils hiring spree ahead of Obama visit Inc. unveiled a new hiring spree yesterday ahead of a visit by President Barack Obama to one of the Internet retailer’s giant distribution warehouses this week. Amazon said it is looking to fill more than 5,000 new full-time jobs at 17 of its fulfillment centers across the United States. That’s roughly a 25 percent increase in full-time fulfillment center staff, which currently number more than 20,000 in the country. Amazon has been building lots of new fulfillment centers closer to customers in recent years as the company tries to speed up delivery of online orders and reduce shipping costs.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for Israel and the Palestinians to make “reasonable compromises” for peace as he prepared to preside over their first direct negotiations in nearly three years yesterday. “It is no secret this is a difficult process. If it were easy, it would have happened a long time ago,” Kerry said with his newly named envoy for IsraeliPalestinian peace, former U.S. ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk, at his side. “It is no secret, therefore, that many difficult choices lie ahead for the negotiators and for the leaders as we seek reasonable compromises on tough, complicated, emotional and

symbolic issues,” Kerry said. In a sign of the challenges, the parties differed in public about the agenda for the talks, with an Israeli official saying all issues would be discussed simultaneously and a Palestinian official saying they would start with borders and security. The United States is trying to broker an agreement on a “twostate solution” in which Israel would exist peacefully alongside a new Palestinian state created in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, lands occupied by the Israelis since a 1967 war. The major issues that need to be resolved to bring an end to more than six decades of conflict include borders, the future of Jewish settlements on the West Bank, the fate of Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem. The last direct negotiations collapsed in late 2010 over Israel’s construction of Jewish settlements on occupied land it seized in a 1967 Middle East war. REUTERS

Obama welcomes talks, says hard choices remain President Barack Obama welcomed Israeli-Palestinian talks but cautioned that a tough path lies ahead. “This is a promising step forward, though hard work and hard choices remain ahead,” Obama said in a statement. “I am hopeful that both the Israelis and Palestinians will approach these talks in good faith and with sustained focus and determination,” he said. “The United States stands ready to support them throughout these negotiations, with the goal of achieving two states, living side by side in peace and security.”

Lea Michele posts heartbreaking photo, message

Talking points

Aniston feels married Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for nearly a year, but don’t expect a wedding anytime soon, as Aniston says they “already feel married,” according to ABC News. “We just want to do it when it’s perfect.” As for all the rumors about strife over planning the big day? “We have yet to set any dates. There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings,” she says.

Two weeks after the tragic death of her boyfriend and “Glee” costar, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele posted a message on Twitter along with this gut-wrenching photo of the two of them taken shortly before Monteith died from a drug overdose. “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support,” she wrote. “Cory will forever be in my heart.” Michele has been busy helping Monteith’s family with his funeral

arrangements, as well as dealing with the “Glee” cast and crew. Showrunner Ryan Murphy said that the show is opting to go back into production as soon as possible, thanks to Michele, whom he says “was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families. ... She felt people really needed to be together in this time.”

She agrees: “If it were up to us, then I would keep going,” she says. “There would have come a time when someone would have said, ‘We’ve had enough.’ But why not have fun until they do?”

Elsie Porter channels a wife’s deepest fears Fiction. A husband dies nine days after secretly eloping. “Forever, Interrupted” is every newlywed’s nightmare. Tucked into a blissful new life after marrying your best friend, your new spouse will bike to the corner store to buy you Fruity Pebbles, simply because getting you what you’re craving brings him or her joy. In this novel, however, the joy is short-lived: Elsie Porter loses her husband, Ben, nine days after they elope following a whirlwind romance. Ping-ponging between her crippling crawl back to whatever a “normal” life might be and the early days of their courtship, the book is a brisk read despite the heavy subject matter. In the book, Elsie and her mother-in-law (who Ben procrastinated telling about Elsie’s existence) come to


This is your first book. Did anything surprise you about the writing process? I had this whole idea when I sat down. I was like, “This is going to happen and then this is going to happen and then this is going to happen.” You start writing, and you suddenly

realize that all of the things that you thought might happen, that’s not going to work now that you’ve sat down with the character and started to write. You’ve gotten to know her, you’re like, “She would never do this, that would never happen.” terms with losing him, including whether leaving rancid hot dogs in the fridge honors him. Taylor Jenkins Reid tells us why she chose to wreck her characters’ lives in her debut novel. How did you get the idea to do this book? I eloped a couple of years ago, almost five years ago. I only knew my husband for four months before we got married. Obviously getting married in general is a rush of emotions, sort of a crazy

time, but to do that with someone you just met, I was very overwhelmed. … [I started thinking,] “What happens if I lose all of this? What happens if he dies?” I just became very, very fearful of something crazy happening and me losing him. Around the same time, I knew I wanted to sit down and start writing a book. My brain had been focused on all of these terrifying things. I thought, “Why don’t I explore this and find out if there’s a story here?” The unimaginable sorrow is really vivid. Did you lose someone yourself, or how did you get into that space? This fear had been so real and almost visceral for me. Getting to those places ... it was really easy for me to write because it was basically writing my worst fears on paper.


Reid says she eloped, then faced fears of losing her new husband.

‘Bizarre Foods’ in America TV. Andrew Zimmern says you don’t have to look too far for a succulently strange meal.

It takes more than a unique dish to pique Andrew Zimmern’s interest. And for a fourth season, the “Bizarre Foods America� host finds himself roaming between California and New York (with a detour to our northern neighbor). Why, having traveled all over the world, eating everything from “bleeding rocks� in Chile to eggplant custard in Greece, is he keeping it local? “To me, it’s all about great stories; great stories that we were overlooking,� he explains. “The beauty of America is that it’s a country of immigrants. I think there are more stories here from the fringe and foods from

other cultures than anywhere else in the world. I don’t know whether I eat to travel or travel to eat, but to me they’re not two strands of spaghetti in a dish; they are the same noodle.� Now that we’re all hungry, where does Zimmern recommend you call ahead before packing your bags this summer?

Good eats

How to choose a bizarre food Getting in is only the beginning. Wherever you find yourself at a table in the world, what’s the golden rule of choosing the right thing? “If I go to a sushi bar, I don’t order the yakitori [grilled chicken]. I go to eat the food that’s expert in those places,� Zimmern says. Look for restaurants that change their menus with the season, with ingredients harvested at their peak freshness. Or, you can always put your decision in the hands of the people who know the menu best. “I like to talk to the people in the restaurants: ‘What’s the restaurant loving to cook right now?’�

Get ready to talk to your wrist watch Watches. Next year, everyone will want a smartwatch.

The classic watchmakers

The Dick Tracy-style voice command watches are here. Yes, soon it’ll be OK to talk to your wrist in public. But the question is: Are today’s smartwatches techy enough for the mass market? “Only 100 million smartwatches will be shipped by 2017, in comparison to 1.6 billion smartphones and 280 million tablets,” predicts senior analyst Joshua Flood at market intelligence company ABI Research. However, current smartwatches are likely to appeal to “iPhone fanatics,” thanks to their email, text, social media and voice message alerts. Yup, these new gadgets are going to make unplugging so much harder.

How to get your child off the couch and into a job Employment. It’s not too late to help your child find a summer job. Calling young readers!

Earning their own paychecks can teach many lessons. / COMSTOCK

If your son or daughter still is not picking up a paycheck this summer, it’s not too late. As a wealth management adviser, Ellen Perry has spent years advising people on how to keep not only businesses, but also families, thriving. One of her pieces of advice? Get a summer job. They teach valuable life skills, whether interning at a company that is in their sights or serving up pizza slices. After working with more than 100 wealthy families, she wrote �A Wealth of Possibilities: Navigating Family, Money, and Legacy.�

Although the book is geared toward families with money, her counsel can apply to parents and children across the board. Perry gave us tips for getting your child to turn off the TV and land a summer job:


Don’t make it optional. Give them two weeks to lie around the house and sleep late — then, if they aren’t employed, tell them you will find one for them.


Help them brainstorm all options. What are they good at? What experiences do they have that are helpful?


pull strings for them. You are trying to teach them resourcefulness and resilience — you can’t be too involved if they are actually going to learn those.


Practical skills are useful. The job doesn’t need to be fancy to be good for them. Waitressing can teach a lot about time management, pacing and multitasking.


A boss can be a great teacher. If you don’t know the boss, kids get honest feedback and learn to identify what the boss wants in terms of their performance and how to give it to them. Try not to be too fussy about the job or boss.

Stay out of the actual job search. Don’t make the calls for them, line up the interviews for them,

Leo | July 23-Aug. 22. Changes to your routine should work out rather well, especially those where chance intervenes.

Aquarius | Jan. 21-Feb 18. If you’re involved in a payment scheme that involves commission, this could be a good day. Limit your offerings.

Virgo | Aug. 23-Sept. 22. Your warm, cooperative personality is extremely contagious. Your friends and colleagues will find this to be quite appealing, encouraging them to act similarly.

Pisces | Feb. 19-March 20. There is a very fine line between being assertive and being aggressive. Don’t think your associates won’t see the difference. Avoid being pushy.

Libra | Sept. 23-Oct. 22. Because your pride, not your ego, will dominate your behavior, it’s likely to be a very rewarding day for you. You won’t hesitate to affix your signature to any of your efforts.

Aries | March 21-April 20. Don’t hesitate to offer a helping hand when you see a friend in need of assistance. You’ll know how to help out in a manner that doesn’t make him or her feel inadequate.

Your biggest rewards will come from things already underway. Capricorn | Dec. 22-Jan 20. Persons can be swayed to your way of thinking if you use a friendly, logical approach on them. Conversely, if you try to force your thinking on others, you’re not likely to make any headway.

Gemini | May 22-June 20. A situation you have been evading isn’t likely to be as bad as you’ve led yourself to believe. If you try to meet it head-on, chances are you’ll discover this for yourself.

Pats camp — the corners NFL. Metro breaks down the Patriots in training camp, position by position. The Achilles’ heel for the New England Patriots over the past five years or so has been their pass defense. It has plagued New England throughout the regular season, constantly putting them in the back of the pack in yards allowed through the air, and it has certainly come back to bite them in the postseason. In both Super Bowl losses

to the Giants, last-minute drives through the air are what doomed the Patriots; in last year’s loss to the Ravens in the AFC Championship game, the Patriots gave up three second-half touchdowns through the air once cornerback Aqib Talib injured his thigh. From 2010 through last season, the Patriots overall rank in passing yards allowed is 29th, 31st and 30th, respectively. The team ranked 12th in passing yards in 2009 before taking its dramatic dive. Can we expect more of the same from the Pats secondary this season? The team brought back what they hope will be their No. 1 cornerback

Aqib Talib made 10 tackles in the 2012 postseason. / BOSTON GLOBE

in Talib on a one-year deal. He will be asked to cover the opposing team’s top receiving threat, and with part of last season with the Patriots under his belt, Talib should do well in the role. Perhaps lining up on the other side of the field — provided he doesn’t end up in even more legal trouble — is Alfonzo Dennard. Dennard, who already is to serve a 30day jail sentence after the season for punching a cop, was arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier this month. Dennard is in camp with the rest of the team, but last week wouldn’t talk about the recent charges against him,

and whether or not they violate the probation he’s on. “I’m not going to talk about that right now,” Dennard told reporters. “I’m just happy to be out there on the field. It’s a good opportunity.” Kyle Arrington also looks to play a big role in the Patriots’ secondary once again as a slot corner, while Ras-I Dowling needs to prove he can stay on the field. The Patriots also drafted rookie CB Logan Ryan in the third round of this year’s NFL Draft.

Rays (62-43) Find video and a recap of last night’s Red Sox game against the Rays:

The Rays are the hottest team in all of baseball, as they have won 21 of their last 25 games. In the last 25 games started by David Price, Matt Moore, Jeremy Hellickson or Chris Archer, they are a whopping 24-1.

Before the weekend series in Baltimore, the Sox scored two runs or less in five of eight games. The schedule gets easier for Boston with home games against Seattle and Arizona.

Oakland has built a six-game lead in the AL West and has won three in a row and six of eight. The A’s offense has been impressive since the break as they averaged 5.5 runs per game against the Angels.

Atlanta continued its dominance at home with a weekend sweep of the Cardinals, improving its record to 34-15 at Turner Field. The Braves have opened up an eightgame lead in the NL East.

Pirates (61-42)

Tigers (59-45)

The Cards were swept this past weekend by the Braves and their offense is in a bit of a funk as they have averaged just 1.5 runs over the past four games.

Even though many have been waiting for the Pirates to fall off, they continue to stay pace with St. Louis. Pittsburgh’s starters lead all of baseball with a sparkling 3.08 ERA.

Besides the Rays, the Tigers are the hottest team in the AL, as they have won three in a row and seven of their last 10 to take a three-game division lead over Cleveland.
