« Blue Sunday | Main | Request for Information about Daniel Yakovleff's Murder »

January 22, 2008



Daniel was found in Savin Hill, a relatively crime-free section of Dorchester; on Tuttle Street, normally a very quiet street with many families and a very diverse and accepting group of neighbors, including many gay men and women. It should be noted that Daniel was found in a gay man's apartment. This was not necessarily a hate crime, and it has little to do with the crime taking place in Dorchester. Unfortunately, we don't know any of the details, but some things are relatively certain 1) that Dan went to the apartment voluntarily after meeting the resident of the apartment, and possibly another man, at Eagle, and 2) there was, according to police, an argument of some kind that evening. A reliable source has said that the resident awoke to find Daniel deceased and the second man missing.

I am bewildered as to why there has not been more news coverage. It took more than a week to release Dan's name, and a suspect still has not been named.


Thanks so much for this D; it really does help to have even this little bit of info. I live right near there, and even if it turns out to be a one time "crime of passion" type of nightmare, we need to hear these news stories and be aware of the kinds of risks there are.


Dan and I went to high school together and remained extremely close, we are both hairdressers and had a close circle of friends ... this is absolutely disgusting there is way to little information out there about this, I'm not asking for a detailed blow by blow of what happened but this situation need much more attention then it is getting. Dan was an absolutely amazing person
