Reports from CBS Boston say the apartment building has a special security system. In order to get inside and to use the elevator, a special key is needed. However, Boston police believe the two doctors and their killer knew each other. The motive for the murders is unknown, but police say the crime does not appear to be random, according to WCVB. Boston Police Commissioner William B Evans observed that for: ” someone to come here, go up to the 11th floor, to the penthouse, we got to believe that somehow there was some type of knowledge of each other,” Evans said.
