Daniel Linskey Featured on Boston 25 News Discussing the Quincy Beating Death Case

In January 2019, 44-year-old Christopher McCallum was breaking up a fight during a concert at an American Legion post in Quincy, Massachusetts when he was punched and fell to the ground, later dying from his injuries. It took over nine months to arrest two men in connection with the beating of the local father. 

Daniel Linskey, Managing Director in the Security Risk Management practice of Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, was featured on Boston 25 News, discussing why he isn’t surprised it took so long to arrest the two men in connection with the beating death of McCallum. He states, “if any weapons had been involved in the fight, it would’ve been an instant felony” and “while police potentially could have made assault and battery-related arrests following the incident, successfully pursuing more elevated charges can be time-consuming.”

Daniel believes at the time of the incident, the matter was properly handled by the officer involved and states "I am absolutely confident that the case that was put together in the last several months is much stronger than the case they had four days after the event without evaluating all of the information and locking in statements to the grand jury."
