The Blackstonian has heard from numerous anonymous sources that Government forces urged the release of Dominic Cinelli who was paroled and later killed Woburn Police Officer John Maguire. These reports are unconfirmed at this time. We have heard that the Parole Board did not intend on releasing Cinelli and were urged to do so by “the government” because of Cinelli’s cooperation with Law Enforcement officials on other matters. It is unclear at this time which branch of government would have intervened on behalf of Cinelli. If Cinelli provided information in active investigations and cases then it would have to be either Federal or State prosecutors/agents. If Cinelli provided information internally within the prison system then it would have to be Department of Correction officials. The Blackstonian is working to confirm these allegations and investigate who and in what capacity intervened on Cinelli’s behalf for Parole. If this story pans out, it exonerates the Parole Board which was subsequently dismantled after public outcry and media scrutiny.
