South End Man’s Remains Found in Charles River

State Police detectives identified the remains of a man found in the Charles River on Thursday as a 32-year-old South End man who went over the rail of the Harvard Bridge along Massachusetts Avenue on New Year’s Day.  Police were alerted at 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 1st that a man had jumped off the bridge along Mass. Ave, but were unable to save the man or find his body despite hours of searching.  “The investigation during the intervening months into that man’s death has not developed any indication of foul play,” said District Attorney spokesperson Jake Wark in a statement released Friday morning. “Because the case is not believed to be criminal in nature, his name is not being released.” SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Massachusetts Travel Ban Remains in Effect

A statewide travel ban remained in effect Saturday morning, as a serious winter storm continued to drop snow on the Boston area and other parts of Massachusetts. In a call to NECN, Gov. Deval Patrick said conditions were improving slowly but that because the storm was still ongoing the travel ban would remain in effect. Patrick said he was still concerned about public safety and that he would reassess the situation “around midday.” The governor said he had not heard of any serious injuries because of the storm. The statewide travel ban, an executive order that took effect at 4 p.m. Friday, affects nearly all non-emergency vehicles across the commonwealth. Some exclusions include health professionals, public works employees, utility workers and members of the media. Anyone found violating the travel ban unnecessarily could face fines up to $ 500 or possibly even jail time, Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency Director Kurt Schwartz said at a Friday press conference.

Boston Snow Emergency Parking Ban Remains in Effect

Boston’s parking ban on major roads throughout the city will remain in effect, the mayor announced on Saturday afternoon.  “We’re halfway there,” Mayor Menino said. “Our crews have been out there, non-stop, and our residents have listened to the early warnings to stay home and stay off the roads. We’re not out of the woods yet. Right now, it’s critical that residents continue to work with us and let the crews have full access to the streets.” You can see the streets that are banned from parking in the South End neighborhood here.  The city said public works crews are out in full force, but it will take significant time, even after the snow stops this afternoon, to clear every roadway. The city also said it is vital that residents continue to stay off the roads and let the process run its course.
