Slaying of 3 women in Boston gets renewed scrutiny

August 12, 2013

BOSTON (AP) — The families of three women fatally shot while they sat in a car in Boston say they are still hoping for answers a year later.

Sharrice Perkins, Kristen Lartey, and Genevieve Phillip, all 22, died after being shot in a parked car after attending the Dominican Festival in Franklin Park last Aug. 12. A fourth woman was injured.

Boston police Sgt. Richard Daley, who is leading the investigation, on Saturday appealed for festival attendees to contact police.

Police also released photos of crowds at the Dominican Festival and a white sport utility vehicle, seen near Harlem Street in Dorchester, where the women were shot.

Angela Francis, mother of Sharrice Perkins, tells The Boston Globe (http://b.globe.com/13e9Frk ) she is grateful for the renewed effort to find witnesses.
