Thursday, February 16, 2012
As GoLocalWorcester learned in this afternoon's court proceedings, Mr. Harkins left Sunney's Bar on Chandler Street with two or three other men, and was never seen again. His body was never recovered and he was declared dead on February 29, 2008.
New evidence presented by Worcester District Attorney Joseph B. Early suggests that Mr. Samia got rid of the plates of a car the day after Mr. Harkins' disappearance, along with removing the registration of the car. Mr. Samia was arraigned in Worcester Superior Court this afternoon, and pleaded not guilty. He has been held without bail and the court date is set for March 14.
