Barre Police Department & Murdered State Trooper Savela

In 1951 MA State Trooper Alje Savela was gunned down along Rt. 122 in Barre. The execution-style murder was never solved though investigators publicly claimed the likely shooter died in a Florida prison years later. More than three months ago I requested the MA State Police let me view Savela's file - more than 60 years old. The records request was ignored. Similarly, the Public Records Division ignored my appeal.

 On January 20, 2013 I updated the status of a public records request related to the murder of MA StateTrooper Alje Savela along Rt 122 Barre in 1951.To date just one individual has “Liked” the post which was critical of the MA State Police and PublicRecords Division for ignoring my request – more than THREE MONTHS outstanding.What am I seeking? Savela’s file concerning his execution-style murder from more than 60 years ago.Joseph L. Higgins served as Barre’s Police Chief during this gruesome event; other public records showthe ex-Marine did a tour in Korea around this same period. If the records hold true then it would havemeant Chief Higgins enlisted at the end of the war (’53).
