Boston Police report they want to talk to anybody who saw a black van on or near Parker Hill Avenue between 2 and 3 a.m. yesterday - about the time that Northeastern senior Rebecca Payne was being shot repeatedly in her apartment there:
Boston Police Superintendent Bruce Holloway stated, "Investigators have not yet determined whether or not Rebecca knew her assailant. Detectives will continue to follow the evidence wherever it takes us and are actively pursuing all information that comes forward."
Police have stepped up patrols on Mission Hill and are distributing brochures on how to contact police anonymously. Police say that while several nearby residents heard gunshots, none reported them to police - Payne's body was found several hours later by a building worker.
Anonymous tips can be made by calling 1-800-494-TIPS or texting "TIP" to CRIME (27463).
