Police continue to investigate Nelson Castillo’s death

The investigation is still open in the death of Nelson Castillo, 25, who was killed last September in Roslindale, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley’s office said.

Castillo was killed Sept. 14 in one of four separate shooting incidents in Boston that night. He was found by officers in a parking lot adjacent to 75 Archdale Road, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, Boston police said in a statement.

Castillo was married and had a young daughter, Roslindale Patch reported.

The Archdale Road area is marred by a recent history of slayings including a young man fatally shot in the head in late 2012. A series of shots were also allegedly fired early last year in the area.
