This article is more than 7 years old.

Authorities are planning a community meeting in South Boston to discuss public safety following the kidnapping and fatal stabbing of a 24-year-old woman.

Police have said that a man who is in custody in connection with two other attacks is a "person of interest" in Amy Lord's homicide.

The meeting will happen Monday evening at Tynan Elementary School on East Fourth Street in South Boston.

Police and elected officials are expected to attend to listen to residents' concerns.

Investigators have said Lord was kidnapped last week and forced to withdraw cash from five ATMs before she was stabbed to death.

A bicyclist found her body in the Stony Brook Reservation in the city's Hyde Park section.

Lord's wake will be Monday in Springfield, followed by her funeral Tuesday in Wilbraham.
