Revere High Video from Night of Officer Daniel Talbot's Murder Released

Today the Daily Item in Lynn, Massachusetts has posted the footage of the parking lot of Revere High the night of Revere Police Officer Daniel Talbot's murder. The footage is grainy and does not capture the actual shooting of Officer Talbot. The only figures in the video are unidentifiable to the naked eye, but the Suffolk DA says that they are Derek Lodie (sentenced to 8-12 years for accessory before the fact), James Heang (sentenced 3-6 years for unlawful possession of a firearm), Thomas Papandrea (believed to be in the witness protection program), and Robert Iacoviello (the triggerman sentenced to three years for gun possession and life for the murder with possibility of parole after 15 years.) The majority of relevant footage shows first responders arriving on the scene.

On the delay from the end of Iacoviello's trial (which concluded in February), the Suffolk DA's spokesman Jake Wark tells The Second Age, "Our copy of the video actually went into evidence at Suffolk Superior Court, where it was played at trial (and remains) for anyone who wished to see it.  Surprisingly, no one who had previously requested a copy actually showed up to view it.  Once the trial was complete, it took some time to obtain the archived original, duplicate it, and resolve the pending issues with the Item."
