Though she is now Middlesex County District Attorney, Marian Ryan continues to oversee a handful of high-profile cases, including the 2010 murder of Woburn Police Officer Jack Maguire, reported The Boston Globe.
Ryan was a constant figure during the aftermath of Maguire’s murder on a snowy December 2010 night. The then-assistant district attorney spearheaded the Middlesex County investigation after Maguire was killed during a jewelry robbery of Kohl's.
During the multiple press conferences in the days after the murder, Ryan was a regular alongside Woburn Police. She remains on the case despite her added responsibilities.
Ryan said her caseload isn’t too much and told The Boston Globe that she has “longstanding relationships” that she’s developed with the victims and their families.
“I’m very invested in that,” Ryan said about the Maguire case. “It is a complicated, fact-specific case.”
Maguire’s widow, Desiree, appreciates that Ryan remains directly involved.
“My family and I would be distraught and very disappointed if she had stepped away from these cases,” Desiree Maguire told The Boston Globe in an e-mail. “She knows all the details of these cases and has worked very hard to prosecute them.”
