You may recall the story this past July when a guy showed up at Faulkner Hospital missing a finger or two and told police it happened in Roslindale, no, wait in Franklin Park and it was muggers, yeah, muggers, who wanted his ring, only the cops couldn't find any blood or missing fingers and his girlfriend told police he never wears rings.
Turns out a crew from "Boston's Finest" was following a couple of the detectives called into the case and after some basic shoe-leather-type investigating, they determined the guy was made to sit in a chair in a Hyde Park apartment (in a modernish low-rise complex "off Hyde Park Avenue") known for its use for prepping cocaine for sale. And there he had one finger and part of another finger rather violently ripped or sawed off. And they concluded he probably lied about where and why the attack happened out of fear the attackers would come after him again. Oh, and the finger wound up outside the door of the brother of his other girlfriend. Maybe next week we'll watch the dramatic arrest of the finga choppahs.
