PROTEST
Remembering Kelly-Jo
BY KRISTEN LOMBARDI

It has been 10 painfully long weeks since Kelly-Jo Griffen perished under mysterious circumstances at MCI-Framingham on July 23 while awaiting arraignment on minor charges (see " Bad Ideas, " Editorial, page 4 and " What Happened to Kelly-Jo? " , News and Features, September 12). Yet family and friends still have not gotten a satisfactory accounting of how the 24-year-old Lynn mother of three came to die just 36 hours after being admitted into the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Correction (DOC). This, despite the fact that six state legislators called on Governor Mitt Romney to launch an outside investigation into Kelly-Joís death last month, and that those legislators and 19 of their colleagues have urged House Speaker Tom Finneran and Senate president Robert Travaglini to assign a committee to examine the case. To demand justice for Kelly-Jo, Griffen family and friends, as well as their supporters, will hold a peaceful vigil in front of the prison gates at the stateís maximum-security prison for women this Sunday afternoon. Itís a must-attend event for those pushing for more accountability from and oversight of the infamously shielded DOC.

The vigil honoring Kelly-Jo takes place on Sunday, October 5, at MCI-Framingham, 99 Loring Drive, Framingham, at 2 p.m. For more information, check out the familyís Web site at www.geocities.com/saaghione
