Strangely, though, the correction to the story that alleged Boston police had detained two people in connection with the Dorchester quadruple slaying did not run on page 1. The Herald writes today:

While saying certain aspects of the story were inaccurate, police sources acknowledged others "were not beyond the realm of probability."

The Herald today reports: POLICE NAB TWO - BREAK IN MASSACRE MYSTERY. Sergeant Detective Thomas Sexton, commander of the Boston PD's Office of Media Relations, uses the department's new blog to say the story is absolutely incorrect:

The "sources" are not credible. THE STORY IS NOT TRUE.
