Springfield police and Hampden County District Attorney Anthony Gulluni are investigating a home on Page Boulevard where they say three bodies were found.
DA Gulluni said early Thursday in a news conference that two bodies were found “in and around” the home located at 1333 Page Boulevard. In a later news conference, he told 22News a third body was recovered.
The Hampden County DA explained that 40-year-old Stewart Weldon is a resident at the home. Weldon was arrested Sunday night and is being held on $1-million bail, after he allegedly kidnapped a woman, and held her hostage for a month.
DA Gulluni said at the evening news conference that he could not confirm if Weldon is the prime suspect of the three bodies found “in and around” the Page Blvd. Home.
The DA told 22News Springfield police arrested Weldon after he led police on a high-speed chase near Wilbraham Road on Sunday. He was arraigned Tuesday at Hampden County District Court.
The DA said in a news conference early Thursday that police found a woman in the car, after the high-speed chase, who claimed she was kidnapped by Weldon. DA Gulluni confirmed with 22News that Weldon lived at the 1333 Page Blvd. home. He said the investigation will continue for at least two more days.
Springfield police have been on Page Blvd. investigating this situation since 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
“Stewart Weldon who was arrested on May 27 by the Springfield Police Department does, we believe, lives at this address,” the Hampden DA said. “That is the extent of the connections we are willing to say at this point.”
Springfield police and the DA’s office are still investigating the house as of late Thursday night. Gulluni said the investigation could last weeks.
Police spokesman Ryan Walsh told 22News Wednesday night the situation was no threat to the public.
