Today, Boston Police announced the arrest of the suspect wanted for the murder of Rashad Lesley-Barnes. Two weeks ago today Boston and Transit Police officers responded to the area of 65 Warren Street, Roxbury for a report of a person stabbed. Upon arrival officers located a male suffering from what appeared to be multiple stab wounds. The victim was transported to Boston Medical Center where he was later pronounced deceased. The victim has since been identified as Rashad Lesley-Barnes, 24 of Dorchester.

This morning, Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 Boston Police arrested and charged Jahvon Goodwin, 21, of Boston, MA. with the Murder of Lesley-Barnes. Goodwin is expected to be arraigned today in Roxbury District Court.

Special thanks to all involved who worked diligently to bring this case to a close.
