Jared Remy to reporter: Including my family was 'below the belt'
BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Jared Remy is apparently unhappy with the press coverage of his case and he's letting reporters know how he feels.
Two letters were sent to two different Boston Herald journalists. The Middlesex County Sheriff's office confirms to the newspaper at least one is authentic.
The letter deemed authentic is from April 21 and is laced with misspellings and expletives, lashing out at a Herald columnist who has been critical of Remy and his parents.
The message was written to Margery Eagan, who wrote columns in the Herald on March 26 and April 1 that criticized Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy and his wife for their parenting. The columnist urged Remy to step down from his job.
The letter is written on one sheet of legal-sized paper. In it, Remy states, "I did expect you to talk all kinds of unfactful negativity about me, but it was below the belt to include my family in my alleged doing. One, they have no criminal history, and they are not criminals."
According to the newspaper, the letter was dictated by Remy to a fellow inmate identified in the letter as Remy's publisher, a man he calls "Big E." Remy goes on to state, "Maybe you should lose your job for slandering my daughter's, mom, and dad name," claiming they have a cleaner background than the reporter.
Remy is charged with killing his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, after a series of domestic violence arrests. He's also facing new charges for a jailhouse fight in which he is accused of attacking another inmate.
The Herald reports another letter was sent to reporter Laurel J. Sweet. That letter claims Remy has documents on the incident report on what happened and, "we could do this for a price."
The letter goes on to complain about jail food. Remy tells Sweet to, "stop them from bashing my parents, they have nothing to do with this there at the Herald."
Eagan posted a new column Friday, in which she says the letter is bullying and demeaning and shows how Remy treats women who make him angry.
