From our Late to the Guilty Party desk
Wednesday’s Boston Herald featured this Slam the Big Door front page:
The piece itself:
‘I did as I was told’
Stone-cold killer Daniel Tavares tells the Herald in a chilling letter from prison he “will plea to the charge of murder” in the 1988 stabbing death of a 32-year-old Fall River mother, but he’s showing no remorse — and cruelly refusing to apologize to her three daughters.
In the letter to a Herald reporter from a Washington state prison cell, Tavares claims Gayle Botelho was killed because she and another man “decided to steal from the wrong people.”
“I remember every single thing about that day. … Stuff like that gets burned into your memory,” Tavares wrote.
And gets printed on Page One of the Herald.
(Check out multiple instances of “I Did As I Was Told” in the Googletron.)
Meanwhile, crosstown at the Boston Globe, the stately local broadsheet has nothing new on Daniel Tavares.
