I was the pool photographer today at the arraignment of Kimani Washington, who was held on a high bail in connection with cocaine trafficking and firearms charges that could connect him further to the Mattapan quadruple murders. My photos were distributed to all who wanted them, as part of the pool agreement for cameras in the courtroom. Boston Herald reporter Laura Crimaldi wrote the story here.

In 1998 I was sent with Boston Herald columnist Peter Gelzinis for the canonization of Edith Stein, with connections to a young Brockton girl. The girl, Benedicta McCarthy, recovered from a near death tylenol overdose when she was 2 years old. Her family organized prayer chains to pray specifically to McCarthy’s namesake, Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross also known as Edith Stein. Stein, according to Wikipedia, was a jew who died in 1942 in the Auschwitz death camp. In 1922 she had converted to catholicism  and was baptized. Read more here in a 2010 ABC news interview. The canonization trip happened on the weekend of October 11th and 12th. Here are my photos below.
