Over the weekend, the Bradford home where 18-year-old Bryce T. Finn was shot and killed last week, was broken into by one or more intruders. The incident adds another layer of mystery to the as-yet unsolved murder of the teen by a gunman the night of Tuesday, June 6. District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett’s office has said, “Investigators do not believe this was a random act,” but also declined to speculate on a motive for the killing. A Haverhill Police incident report lists a “breaking and entering” at the 54 Rainbow Drive, single-family home Saturday, June 10, just before 4:30 p.m. The Haverhill Police Department’s Records Division said details of the house break cannot be released while the murder investigation continues.
