The Franklin Police Department is aware that much attention was drawn to the clothing the suspect was wearing in the video. The company, who self-identified publicly as Reilly Tree and Landscape of Plainville came forward early in the investigation and worked with our investigators to identify the individual. Their cooperation assisted this investigation tremendously.

Questions about the status of this case should now be referred to the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office.

All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
