Berkley Man’s Cold Case Murder Has Suspect After Nearly 30 Years
TAUNTON — Authorities in Massachusetts say they have figured out at least one of the people responsible for the disappearance and killing of a professional gambler nearly 30 years ago.
Berkley resident Howard Ferrini, 53, was last seen by his friends at the Raynham dog track in August 1991. His body was found in the trunk of his car in a parking lot at Logan Airport a few days later.
The Cold Case Unit of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, with help from Massachusetts State Police and the FBI, matched fingerprints on a bag used to suffocate Ferrini to Kevin Hanrahan.
According to the DA’s office, Hanrahan was shot to death in 1992.
