So we’ve gotten a lot of feedback about the blog we wrote yesterday about the home invasion in Sterling:
Lot of people messaging us on behalf of Richard J. Magdis and his daughter Stephanie Magdis Girouard, who own MNS Realty LLC. Richard Magdis lives in the home that was invaded. His wife was the one who was allegedly bound at knifepoint while her home was ransacked.

Just for the record, we’re not saying that they’re bad people. But they certainly are not responsible property owners. What we’re pointing out is that they could’ve done a lot better job maintaining some of the property they own. It is not a conspiracy by the Turtlegram and the mainstream media when they report the documented FACT that “22 of the properties controlled by the two turned up 61 violations of the minimum standards for human habitation under the state sanitary code.”
Look, we understand that it’s not easy being a landlord. You have to deal with a lot of shitbags who don’t mind sleeping in their own filth and have no respect for other people’s property. But stuff like crumbling front stairs and mice infestation is something the landlord needs to take care of. No one says it’s easy being a landlord, but when you own as much property as they do, and you’re making enough money to live in a mansion in Sterling, you are morally obligated to make sure your property is kept up. If you can’t handle that then don’t buy property you’re not gonna live in. If you need to hire someone to do that, then do that. But as someone who has lived in Worcester his entire life, I HATE driving through this city and seeing the way it looks. And the people who own these eyesores often do not live in Worcester and don’t have to deal with it. That I have a problem with.

Anyway, the point of the blog was to point out two things:
- Common sense tells you they were most likely targeted specifically because of their roles as urban slumlords, and there’s nothing wrong with pointing that out.
- There is a lot about this story that doesn’t make any sense.
So for all the people whining about the Turtlegram and Turtleboy bringing up the fact that they’re slumlords, calm your tits. It’s completely relevant to the story. It would be irresponsible NOT to mention that. Criminals have motives. Victims of home invasions are not random. There is a 99.9% chance that if this happened as they claimed it did, then it had some tie to property they own.
Here’s some stuff that needs answering:
- Why did they steal the Cadillac? She said there were three of them. If they came in a car then what would be the point of stealing his Cadillac, only to park it a couple miles away in a different part of Sterling? You know the cops are looking for you, and based on the call logs in the Holden Landmark, this is obviously going to be a priority. So why increase the chances of getting caught by stealing the car, only to abandon it right afterwards?
- The Turtlegram is reporting that THEY (plural) stole the cadillac. If all three criminals left in the Cadillac, then how’d they get there in the first place? Bus? Then what? They got picked up at Chocksett Middle School (where the car was found)? If you just committed such a heinous crime, why would you drive a stolen car directly to a school on a busy road?
- How’d they get the keys to the Cadillac?
- Where was the husband during this? It happened at 10 AM. Maybe he was at the store? I dunno because he hasn’t spoken with the press.
- How did the elderly woman untie herself? Just sayin, it’s almost as if she has Kim Kardashian-like powers.
- There’s no forced entry, so why were the doors unlocked? A woman was just murdered randomly in neighboring Princeton three months ago. Her killer was never caught. No way I’m keeping my doors unlocked, especially if I live in a million dollar home and own a shitload of property in Worcester. Why would these people keep their doors unlocked?
I’m not saying they’re making this story up or anything like that. But there’s certainly a lot of things that don’t make sense. And just because someone is a nice person, doesn’t mean we’re gonna stop asking these questions. We got fooled two weeks ago when we believed that black lives matter assholes robbed a cop’s house and spray painted “BLM” on the outside. The lesson we learned form that story is that there is often more to every story.
