Devonte Franklin

Devonte Franklin
On December 31, 2008 at approximately 9:30PM 16 year old Devonte Franklin was stabbed multiple times while riding on an MBTA Route 28 bus in the vicinity of Blue Hill Avenue and Harvard Street in Dorchester. Tragically Devonte did not survive this horrendous and senseless attack. It's an understatement to say Devonte's murder was devastating to his family, friends and all those who knew him.

Ten years have passed since Devonte's murder and the person responsible has yet to be identified. The Transit Police Department will never give up on this case. On this ten year anniversary mark we implore anyone with information, however slight, relative to Devonte's murder and the identity of his killer to contact us. Devonte deserves your help.

Please furnish any and all information you may have to the Transit Police Criminal Investigation Unit at 617-222-1050. If you have information but wish to remain anonymous you can do so by texting us at 873873 or using our See Say app. Help us bring the individual responsible for this barbaric act to justice and perhaps bring Devonte's family some closure.

Media inquiries should be directed to Superintendent Richard Sullivan at
