East Boston Stabbing Victim Named

Investigators have released the name of the East Boston teen found to be apparently stabbed to death on the shoreline of Constitution Beach Monday morning.

According to Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Jake Wark, the deceased was 15-year-old Wilson Martinez of East Boston.

State Police detectives assigned to Suffolk County D.A. Daniel Conley’s office are actively investigating the apparent fatal stabbing on the beach and the circumstances around the mysterious death.

“No piece of information is too small to be helpful,” Conley said. “Every piece of evidence, no matter how peripheral it may seem, is important.”

A man walking near the East Boston Yacht Club spotted Martinez’ body near the waterline at about 8:00 a.m. Monday morning and flagged down a nearby State trooper. Homicide detectives responded to the scene with the State Police Marine Unit, Dive Team, Crime Scene Services Section, and other State Police assets.

“He had injuries consistent with stab wounds, but the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of his death,” said Wark.

Suffolk County DA Dan Conley said the investigation is very active and urged anyone with information on Martinez’ death to contact detectives at 617-727-8817.
