A pizza-delivery man in his 50s was stabbed to death at 742 Hyde Park Ave. in Roslindale shortly before midnight by two men and a woman, who stole his car and then abandoned it behind a church a couple miles away in Hyde Park, police say.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, speaking near the car behind St. Adalbart Church on River Street this morning, said evidence at the murder scene and in the car should help police find the trio even though they have fled the area.
Davis said the three broke into the Hyde Park Avenue house - which has been vacant for about a year - then called a local Domino's for a pizza. When the delivery man, not identified pending notification of his next of kind, arrived, they attacked and killed him.
Davis said somebody who had seen initial media reports about his Subaru wagon noticed it in the church parking lot and called police around 8:30 a.m.
