Police investigation of house on Page Blvd. winding down

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - It's been nine days since police found the bodies of three women at a home on Page Boulevard in Springfield.

When the investigation first began, the road was filled with a dozen police vehicles. Now only one cruiser sits in the driveway at 1333 Page Blvd.

Hampden District Attorney spokesman James Leydon told 22News that police have finished using ground penetrating radar at the Springfield home and that no additional remains were found.

Investigators have also removed the caution tape at one of the neighboring houses.

One resident told 22News she's relieved to see a decreased police presence in the neighborhood.

"We couldn't even go down the other way to go down my street because all the cops were over there," said Shey McAbee of Springfield. "So it's a relief  that they are calming down."

DA Anthony Gullluni told 22News police recovered the remains of 27-year-old Kayla Escalante, 47-year-old Ernestine Ryans, and 34-year-old America Lyden last week.

People have left flowers and candles across the street, as a memorial for the three victims.

Forty-year-old Stewart Weldon was a resident of the home and is in police custody on unrelated kidnapping and assault charges.

Police have also searched his other residence in Westfield with police dogs and ground penetrating radar, but "nothing of note" was found.
