Police in Massachusetts arrested a man they say poisoned Stephen "Stippo" Rakes, who was a potential witness in the case against notorious Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger.
The important detail: The Boston Globe reports Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said they believe William Camuti, 69, "acted alone" and they did not believe the homicide was connected to the Bulger case.

The Massachusetts State Police sergeant who gave photos of Boston bombings defendant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to Boston Magazine has been placed on restricted duty, The Associated Press reported just after 1 p.m. ET Tuesday.
The AP adds, "Sgt. Sean Murphy leaked the photos last week, saying he wanted to counter a glamorized image of Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine." On Tuesday, Murphy was placed on desk duty, where he will have no contact with the public until a further investigation is completed.
