Police Still Investigating Motsenigos Death One Month Later

There have been no charges in the Aug. 24 incident which resulted in the death of a cyclist.

Local and state police are continuing to investigate a crash which resulted in the death of a Wellesley man.

Alexander Motsenigos, 41, died from injuries related to a crash on Weston Road at Linden Street Aug. 24. Motsenigos, who was riding a bicycle, was struck by a truck traveling northbound.

“It is still an open and ongoing investigation,” Lt. Marie Cleary of the Wellesley Police Department said in an email Friday. “The accident reconstruction team is working on their reconstruction. The detectives are still working on their portion of the investigation as well.”

A few witnesses and the driver of the truck made themselves known to Wellesley Police in the days following the incident, but charges have yet to be filed. Boston Magazine called for accountability in the incident in a Sept. 5 column.

I can't imagine why it would take so long to reconstruct the accident. There must be a back story to all this.

I dont Think Attorney General Martha Coakley would approve she could take charge in the investigation if the public thinks there is a cover up.

From sad experience of similar tragic deaths next-door in Newton, it really does take time for the case to be put together and for criminal charges to be filed, even in cases where it's obvious the driver is at fault. But I do find it disturbing that here we are one month later and we still don't know the name of the suspect or the identity of the company truck that struck and killed Mr Motsenigos. The suspect has stated he was driving the truck, and it's pretty clear he will be charged with something, so it's pointless to conceal the driver's identity for so long.
