April 26, 2023 Select Board Statement

Over the past several days, we have received inquiries concerning news reports and social media posts related to the ongoing criminal case dealing with the death of John O’Keefe. The investigation into the matter was referred to the Massachusetts State Police and Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office immediately after the incident. The Town and its employees have cooperated fully in the investigation.   It is our understanding that the next court proceeding will take place on May 3rd, at which time more information may be forthcoming.  We reserve all judgment while the judicial process moves forward.  At this time, it is inappropriate for the Town to make any further comment on this on-going investigation.
