Springfield Murder Probe: The Latest

posted by John Baibak - 

The Hampden County District Attorney, Anthony Gulluni has identified the three victims found at a Page Boulevard home last week.

47-year-old Ernestine Ryans of Springfield was found on the property, along with 34-year-old American Lyden, also of Springfield , and 27-year-old Kayla Escalante.  The D-A says she was from Ludlow.

While identifying the dead, the District Attorney is short on details related to the mode of death.  The DA says that all three deaths are being investigated as suspicious.

The D-A has said that there were two missing persons reports filed on two of the victim.  There were no such reports filed for Escalante.

The District Attorney says that Stewart Weldon remains held in lieu of one million dollars bail.  Officials have added an additional kidnapping count to his case.  But, officials while careful to point out that he is being held only for kidnapping right now, the investigation is continuing but that the public is in no danger.

Police tell us that if you are travelling down Page Boulevard you will see one lane continued to be blocked to assist in the investigation.

Gulluni telling reporters that he anticipates the investigation will take weeks.
