Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Cambridge Police Commissioner Branville Bard, Jr. announce today that the family of Paul Wilson is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for his death, which occurred in Danehy Park, Cambridge Massachusetts, on January 2, 2019.

Anyone with information about this case can contact Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office at (781) 897-6600, Cambridge Police at 617-349-3121 or through a third party.

At approximately 6:48 p.m., on January 2, 2019, the Cambridge Police responded to Danehy Park following a report of what appeared to be a body lying on the paved pathway under a lit street lamp. Upon arrival, police located Mr. Wilson suffering from significant head trauma.
