Suffolk County Prosecutors Allege Mattapan Quadruple Murder Resulted from Drug Robbery

Dwayne Moore, 33, was arraigned yesterday morning in the Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court, charged with four counts of First Degree Murder in connection with the Mattapan murders of four people: Levaughn Washum-Garrison, Simba Martin, Eyanna Flonory, and her 2 year old child, Amanihotep Smith.

At Moore’s arraignment in Dorchester, Suffolk County prosecutors alleged that Moore conspired with Kimani Washington to rob Simba Martin, who was allegedly dealing drugs from his Mattapan home on Sutton Avenue. According to prosecutors, Moore lived with Martin at one point in 2010 after being released from state prison following a Manslaughter conviction, and therefore knew about Martin’s illegal drug business, and presumably, his stash of drugs and money at his home.

On the night of the murders, September 28, Moore and Washington tried to get Martin to come out of his home, but another man, Marcus Hurd, arrived to purchase drugs of his own. At that point, Moore and Washington forced both Martin and Hurd inside at gunpoint and the two began robbing the home.

After cash, drugs and other items were taken, the two men, one woman and her child were forced out of the home naked and taken to nearby Woolson Street where they were shot multiple times. Only Marcus Hurd has survived the incident but he remains in critical condition.

The day following the murders, Kimani Washington was stopped by Boston Police driving the car that was believed to be linked to Marcus Hurd, and he was arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. As of this date, Washington has not been charged with Murder.
