Massachusetts resident Karen Read, 43, has gathered a major support group in an ongoing case that went viral after she allegedly turned her back on her boyfriend, Boston Police Officer John O’Keefe, in January 2022.

Read’s was charged with second-degree murder, negligent motor vehicle manslaughter while driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury and death Boston.com.

She has pleaded not guilty to all charges and her lawyers have consistently argued that Read is innocent.

“I have an innocent client, period,” said Read’s defense attorney, Alan Jackson NBC in August.

Jackson and Read’s other defense attorneys have insisted that the 43-year-old was blamed for O’Keefe’s death and that a homeowner’s dog was found near the late police officer’s home in Canton, about 21 miles south of Boston. was responsible for it.

The dog attack is part of the overall theory, with O’Keefe being beaten and fighting a group of attackers before being attacked by the dog and left in the freezing snow.

Elements of the theory began to gain traction after defense evidence was presented at a preliminary hearing on May 3.


Read’s defense argued in court that the injuries to O’Keefe’s arm were dog bites – and a Google search that police officers found on O’Keefe’s neighbor’s sister-in-law’s phone led to more questions.

The homeowner’s sister-in-law is said to have searched for “ho”.[w] They long to die in the cold” at about 2:27 a.m., hours before Read allegedly discovered her boyfriend’s body.

Boston-based criminal defense attorney Peter Elikann told Boston.com that the Google search evidence was compelling despite prosecutors’ arguments against it.

“It almost looked like a bomb, very powerful.” [piece of] Evidence,” he told the outlet.

“And then the prosecution gives reasons why they believe the timestamp was unreliable.”

Norfolk Assistant District Attorney Adam C. Lally said in court that Read directed the sister-in-law to conduct the search after she found the body and that the time stamp was incorrect.

District Attorney Michael Morrissey also argued that the so-called dog injury and fight scenario was debunked after an autopsy of O’Keefe’s body.

Medical examiners concluded that a five-centimeter cut on the back of his head, two black eyes and multiple skull fractures were not consistent with a dog attack or fight.

“An outrage”

The prosecutor has also been vocal in his criticism of conspiracy theories spreading online through blogs like Turtleboy’s.

“The harassment of witnesses in the Karen Read murder trial is completely unfounded. It should be an outrage to any decent person and must stop,” the prosecutor said The Boston Herald.

Still, several fans put up signs in support of Read near the New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium.

A fundraising campaign was also launched, reportedly raising $150,000.

Protesters were seen holding signs in support of Read that read “Free Karen.”

Read herself also loudly protested her innocence in the face of seemingly growing support.

“It feels like we are the only ones fighting for the truth about what happened to John O’Keefe,” she said at a news conference.

“I, my family, my lawyers and my team have used every resource to find out the truth.”

A reporter asked, “Karen, just to be clear: You didn’t do it?”

Read responded that the public knew who killed O’Keefe.

“We know who did it…We know who led this cover-up. You all know it,” she remarked.

Read also claimed she tried to save her boyfriend while covered in his blood.


Legal documents state that Read struck O’Keefe with her car in front of the home of another Boston Police officer.

The couple was at a party and Read allegedly left the scene of the accident before being told that O’Keefe, her boyfriend, had not returned.

Read noticed damage to her SUV and found O’Keefe, 46, dead in the snow in “blizzard-like conditions,” according to police.

Officers who responded also found pieces of a taillight, according to documents obtained by the local Fox affiliate WFXT.

Read reportedly called 911 and a friend said Read told them, “John is dead, I wonder if he is dead.”

“It’s snowing, he was hit by a plow.”

The information was then refuted by prosecutors in court earlier this year.

They alleged Read told a first responder, “I hit him, I hit him, I hit him, I hit him.”

Read’s father, William, also recalled his daughter telling him she thought she had stumbled upon something, but did not say it was O’Keefe.

“She felt like she hit something. She said, ‘Dad, I think I’m onto something,'” he said told WXFT.

According to prosecutors, O’Keefe’s clothing was covered in blood and vomit and his eyes were swollen shut.

He was immediately taken to hospital and pronounced dead.

Despite the court documents, Read’s team claimed they had been unfairly denied access to evidence and vehemently defended their position in court.

Judge Beverly Cannone set Read’s trial date for March 12, 2024 CBS News.
