Reward offered for info on boy who went missing - in 1974

Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley and Revere Police Chief Terence Reardon today announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of Leigh Savoie, a 10-year-old boy who left his house on April 7, 1974 to shine shoes for an Easter present for his mother and then never returned.

Savoie, who would be 45 today, sometimes shined shoes at nearby Suffolk Downs. Later on the afternoon of the 7th, the owner of a Revere restaurant returned the kit to Savoie's home, saying the boy had dropped it off earlier in the day on his way to Revere Beach. He has not been seen since.

The DA's office says that in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, detectives are still classifying his disappearance as "missing." Anyone with information can call Revere Police at 781-286-8203 or State Police at 617-727-8817. Anybody who knew him or the neighborhood in 1974 is also asked to call.

So sad even 30 years later.

that makes him look all sympathetic in the community but which has very little to do with the Suffolk County DA since there is no evidence of a crime, just a Revere Police Department missing persons report.

But DA Conley HAS NOT TIME to investigate a case of alleged police brutality, whether BPD officers Brian Dunford and David Santosuosso used excessive force beating down suspect Wayne Abron in the back yard at his mothers house. http://www.universalhub.com/node/27791
