We’ll get the latest in the case of the brutal murder of South Boston resident Amy Lord.


WBUR “The first sign that something was amiss came at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday: a report of a black Jeep burning on Logan Way in South Boston. It was registered to an Amy Lord.”

Boston Globe “Amy E. Lord was savagely beaten inside her South Boston apartment building early Tuesday before she was ordered into her Jeep by her attacker, who then forced her to drive to five Boston banks to withdraw money during a 47-minute span — before fatally stabbing her and leaving her body at the Stony Brook Reservation, a law enforcement official said today.”

    all women can carry a can of Wasp Spray in the car, purse, at the door of their home.  It shoots a direct, strong spray 20-30 feet.  Once it is in the eyes of the attacker the attack is disabled.  Hospital care is required, it doesn’t wash out or wear off.   It also doesn’t blow back like pepper spray or mace.


  • Proactive

    Take the time to listen to the interview with Ben Keren that Anthony Brooks did – better still attend one of his free classes.  Wasp or CS Spray are great defense products but if your not able to identify the danger you are in or freeze in the face of such danger they will do you little good. Keren’s information about why humans deny danger is soooo important to understand. It’s no good carrying an effective spray if you fail to use it.
