It is believed that Cummings and Dennis Jackson were acquaintances through mutual friends. At one point Jackson may have visited the Liberty Street beach house, according to a media outlet.
Earlier this week, three law enforcement officials confirmed that Friday’s search of a murder suspect’s Liberty Street residence was related to the recent gruesome discovery of burned body parts in Boston and Bridgewater.
An Essex County District Attorney’s office spokeswoman declined to comment on the connection, saying her office wasn’t in a position to discuss the matter. As of today no arrests have been made in connection with the case.
Authorities told The Daily News that police are looking into the possibility that the victim was killed at the Liberty Street house, dismembered and then brought to the Hyde Park and Bridgewater locations.
