The Waltham triple murder case has been unsolved for seven years. Various theories have emerged, including a possible anti-Semitic hit-job. Because the murders occurred on the same day as September 11th, the case is also subject to rumors of government informants. The victims’ friend Kelly Griffin had expressed concern about these rumors, and District Attorney Mary Ryan has been under great pressure to solve the case.
Mess’s girlfriend told investigators she knew that he kept a handgun in the apartment, and a friend said that Mess had familiarized himself with firearms years earlier. He and his girlfriend shared an apartment with Weissman, a man who had been struggling financially after the Boston police seized drugs in his apartment.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a member of the group, also told police that he had no American friends. The two men had trained together at a local boxing gym. Tamerlan, however, was a kafir-hating fanatic. Mess’s murders were a big deal. When months passed without a solution, the unsolved case gained widespread attention.
The three men killed by Tamerlan Tsarnaev are suspected of being drug dealers. They were killed with a knife and ice picks and the bodies were covered in marijuana. The bodies were found in Mess’s Waltham apartment. The men’s throats were cut. The bodies were also covered in blood. The bodies were left with five thousand dollars.
