One Out of One Killers Prefers the Boston Herald

From our Late to the Guilty Party desk

Wednesday’s Boston Herald featured this Slam the Big Door front page:

The piece itself:

GRAHAM BODIESKiller pens letter about ’88 slaying of Fall River woman

‘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.
