I Regret to agree with you Kelly. Sadly, but true. Laina Burke is a very disturbed young woman. She has been in Framingham State Prison several times, but apparently has a "death wish" She assaulted my son when he was just a minor, and try to slander my daughters name. Pay backs a bitch you @#$%!@^ Psycho!!! Rot!

Marisa Iaocabucci, i think since you are 20 plus years her senior, you should be real proud of yourself for picking on a 26 year old. and i think you have it all wrong. I heard it was your son Matthew who tried to touch her child and a police report was filed and is on record of that incident. Your daughters name is already slandered, just google her name Desiree Iaocabucci and you will see her numerous busts for heroin, needles and trying to conceal them on her person. So i dont think her name was slandered, she did that all to herself by becoming a heroin addict and a stripper all by the age of 23. And you I heard have been to framingham just last year when you lived in medford but skipped out on that appt because you didnt pay rent for just about the whole time you lived there. I think that is your M.O - you rent a place, dont pay rent then skip between MA and NH. and word around Somerville is you have gained massive amounts of weight, only put headshots on your dating website photos and when the guys meet you they RUN for the hills! you spend your days not working, not doing anything productive except taking your klonapin and wallowing in your gross existance. So before you go and open your mouth about someone much younger than you, look at your old self. Im sure all those years of being molested by your dad have caught up with you. you seem like your already rotting. thats such a sad existance!
