Police today arrested Vanessa MacCormack's husband, Andrew, on charges he beat and strangled her in their apartment on Grand View Avenue home, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office and Revere and State Police announced today.
According to the DA's office:
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner made preliminary findings that she had suffered a blunt force injury to the head, sharp force injuries to the neck, and asphyxiation. Evidence suggested that the killer made concerted efforts to clean up the crime scene and dispose of related items.
Today’s arrest followed the recovery of footage from private surveillance systems and public safety cameras, the execution of a search warrant by State and Revere police, interviews with multiple witnesses, examination of phone and other records, and many more investigative steps.
In a statement, DA Dan Conley said:
The evidence suggests that her murder was a crime of domestic violence, committed in the very place where she should have been safest - her own home. It was critical during the past several days to withhold certain information as we gathered the facts and evidence, and we’re extremely grateful for the cooperation of witnesses and partner agencies who helped us build this case.
Andrew MacCormack, 29, is expected to be arraigned tomorrow in Chelsea District Court.
