DA drops charges against three for Franklin Field triple murder after key witnesses turn up dead

The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reported today it has dropped murder charges against suspects in a triple murder after a Franklin Field cookout in 2004.

The DA's office said there is no connection between the case and the deaths of two key witnesses - one died of natural causes, the other in a fight in Lewiston, Maine. It said it formally ended the charges in a nolle prosequi filing, which means it could re-charge the three - Jemald Allen, his nephew Roderick Allen and Antoin Fields - if it can find other compelling evidence with which to pin them with the murders of Angelo Henderson, Jaison Jenkins, and Anthony Williams.

Because of that, investigators urge anyone with knowledge about the Sept. 4, 2004 murders to contact the Boston Police homicide unit at 617-343-4470 or the anonymous tip line by calling 800-494-TIPS, or texting TIP to CRIME (27463).
