Another relative of Thaddeus Singleton III, John Alcorn, testified last week before a grand jury in Boston’s Suffolk County. Alcorn, whose nickname is “Chicago,” is the man mentioned in a Massachusetts police report in June as the possible owner of a .38-caliber gun seized from a car after an accident in Springfield, Mass., Morrell said.

Tito Valderamma and Gina Thebarge have not spoken publicly about the case. Gina said when she answered the door at the home earlier this month that the family was “not ready to do that yet.”

“But thank you for asking nicely,” she said. “And God bless you.”
