Lot of news today on the Julie Corey front:
- Corey’s boyfriend Alex Dion claims he thought the baby was his.
- So did his family.
- Police have not charged Dion with anything.
- Corey is fighting extradition from New Hampshire back to Massachusetts.
- The DNA test on the baby found with Corey and Dion is being fast-tracked.
- Multiple sources report that Corey had changed her alleged due to date from late June to early July, and continually found reasons to go to Ob-Gyn appointments without Dion or family members.
- Attorney Louis Aloise has been appointed to represent Corey, who is expected to face an extradition hearing at the end of August
The latest AP report:
Earlier this month – before she gained instant national attention as the woman apparently in possession of the baby ripped from murder victim Darlene Haynes’ womb – Julie Corey was arrested for a domestic violence incident against her boyfriend Alex Dion.
In the complaint filed on July 6th, Corey is accused of Assault and Battery after she allegedly “grabbed her boyfriend by the arm and would not allow him to leave the apartment.” In the case, continued to August 21st , she is also accused of “yelling and screaming in the common hallway, causing neighbors to ext their apartments,” and she “refused to go back into her own apartment.”
Corey – who had not faced any known charges before this month – was released on no bail.
Multiple media outlets are reporting that the baby cut out of murder victim Darlene Haynes has been found alive and in good health in New Hampshire.
Reports are that Worcester resident Julie A. Corey is in custody, and being charged with being a fugitive from justice. Corey is identified in courthouse records as being a resident of 3 Henry Terrace; she appeared in court earlier this month to face charges of disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, and assault and battery in another case.
We’ll be tracking this story over the coming days as it is pieced together.
A week after we wrote about the dismissal of the court case against the city for the notorious 2000 murders at Il Palazzo, the old El Morocco, the man responsible for those killings has died in an apparent suicide. 34-year-old Patrick O’Brian, an inmate in the Shirley medium-security prison, was found unresponsive Monday with a ligature around his neck, according to a report in the Boston Globe.
WHDH is reporting that the body found in a closet yesterday was that of 23-year-old pregnant Darlene Haynes, whose fetus had been removed before she was wrapped in bedding and stuffed in a closet.
Official word is in: There will be no preliminary election in Worcester this year.
The official ballot will have 12 at-large council candidates, contests in 4 of 5 districts, and 8 school committee candidates.
4:22: Castellanas is asking the City Council to go on record in support of a recreated reflecting pool/canal and streetscape improvements in the Canal District, as in the next few days money could be released by state/federal authorities.
There’s a bit of a disagreement if an official letter is needed or not.
This is essentially a continuation of the ongoing Canal District improvement plan, and something Congressman McGovern has been in strong support of.
We’ll be liveblogging the City Council meeting starting in a few minutes!
