Boston police say a 24-year-old woman was fatally stabbed after being kidnapped in the South Boston neighborhood and forced to drive to several banks.

The body of Amy Lord, a Wilbraham native and 2011 graduate of Bentley University, was found Tuesday afternoon by a bicyclist at the Stony Brook Reservation, in the city's Hyde Park neighborhood.

Police said Lord may have been on the way to the gym when she was kidnapped Tuesday morning. Police said her car, which was located later, had been set afire.

Police on Wednesday said they had not made any arrests in connection with Lord's killing.

On Wednesday evening, police released a list of the five ATMs where Lord's bank account was accessed early Tuesday morning. They are:

- East Boston Savings Bank at 501 Southampton St.
- Metro Credit Union at 1071 Massachusetts Ave.
- Bank of America at 555 Columbia Rd.
- Sovereign Bank at 585 Columbia Rd.
- Citizen’s Bank at 217 Adams St.

Police also released surveillance images of Lord, asking the public's assistance with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call homicide detectives at 617-343-4470. Anonymous calls may also be made to 1-800-494-TIPS, or by texting the word "tip" to "CRIME" (27463).

A 28-year-old man identified as Edwin Alemany, of Boston, was arrested in connection with an attack on another woman in South Boston early Wednesday morning. The victim of that attack was stabbed, but survived.
