Police Ask For Public’s Assistance in Tedeschi’s Murder Investigation

The developing story of the shooting death of the clerk at a Jamaica Plain Tedeschi’s is outside the North End, but the Boston Police continue to ask for the public’s assistance. Although unrelated investigations, it is also notable there was a knife holdup last week at the 7-Eleven at the corner Hanover & Commercial Streets.

Police have released a surveillance video shown below with an extended version here. A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for the murder of 39-year-old Surendra Dangol.

Dangol was shot and killed the day after Christmas as he worked the 11:00am to closing shift at the Jamaica Plain store. Surveillance footage from store cameras shows the suspect loitering outside the store approximately between 2:30pm to 3:00pm. The surveillance video shows the suspect as he enters the store and brandishes a firearm. Dangol (victim) can be seen complying with the robber’s demands (placing the money from his cash drawer into the robber’s blue backpack) prior to being fatally wounded. Investigators believe the suspect fled the scene in a white, four-door sedan, possibly a 1986-1992 Plymouth Acclaim. The motor vehicle was last seen travelling towards the Jamaicaway.

Still photos and video images of the assailant and getaway car can be viewed at www.BPDNews.com.
