Arrest Made In ‘Horrific’ Marshfield Murder.

MARSHFIELD – Authorities say DNA evidence found on a discarded piece of clothing led to the arrest of a former Marshfield man just 10 days after Robert McKenna was murdered in his Damons Point Road home.

DORCHESTER, Mass. ( – Using DNA evidence to link him to the crime, police arrested a man allegedly responsible for the death of a Marshfield man. At a media conference about the arrest, District Attorney Timothy Cruz said he believes there was more than one perpetrator and told the other person responsible to come forward.

Cruz said McKenna had suffered a substantial cut to the top of his right arm causing major blood loss, as well as cuts to both of his hands and an injury to the back of his head. Cruz did not say whether investigators located a murder weapon. “The medical examiner’s findings are consistent with death being caused by exsanguination due to injuries to the right arm severing large blood vessels and penetrating soft tissue injuries of the head,” Cruz said. Neighbors said McKenna was an eccentric and energetic man who collected big game trophies and told tales about being a former diamond runner in Africa and keeping a large and valuable stone in his home. State Police detectives and Marshfield Police collected clothing, footwear and gloves both at the scene and along the route that authorities say Ferguson took when fleeing.

A review of archives from The Patriot Ledger shows that Ferguson has a lengthy criminal record, including numerous drug and assault and battery charges.
