Sidewalk Memorial Appears on Boylston

A sidewalk memorial was put up on Boylston Street over the weekend.

The memorial bore the words “RIP Chino” and also memorialized Luis “Mata” Troncoso, killed in 2008, Luis “Tito” Torres in October 2010 and Winsizky Soto and Johnnel “Bo” Cruz, both shot in Same Old Place in November 2010. Police had previously linked Troncoso, Torres, Soto and Cruz to the Boylston Street crew infamous for its feud with rival Mozart Street.

The new memorial may be linked to the stabbing death of a man on Saturday in East Boston, but that has not been confirmed by police. As of Monday morning, police were not releasing the victim’s name. The man’s body was found in the area of 282 Border St. in East Boston.

A man who answered the phone at Beantown Society, a Jamaica Plain youth development organization, confirmed that a man from the neighborhood was killed over the weekend, but that he could not confirm the man’s name.

On Friday, Beantown Society is producing its annual “Don’t Wait Till We’re Dead” talent show. It will be dedicated to all persons who have died in street violence. The talent show is at Spontaneous Celebrations, 45 Danforth St., from 7-10 p.m. on Friday.
