BROCKTON—Had 24-year-old Caylin Rudolph not been allegedly murdered by her brother Donald in Weymouth, she would have been scheduled to appear in Brockton Superior Court to face one count of larceny of a drug.
According to a Brockton Police report, Rudolph was to receive a summons for the alleged theft of 29 Clonazepam pills, a charge made by Wenonah Bowen, who periodically stayed at a Brockton rooming house at 220 N. Main St. (Rudolph pictured at top)
Bowen’s complaint was filed with Brockton Police on Oct. 6, at 6:41 a.m. (Bowen pictured second from top)
No other charges are listed against Rudolph in Quincy or Brockton courts.
“Had she not been killed she would have been in court,” said Brockton Police Capt. Manuel Gomes, who noted Rudolph’s death in the gruesome Weymouth triple homicide was a sad situation.
In the report, Bowen states she worked with Caylin Rudolph at the Aria Day Spa in Brockton, which was raided Oct. 22 by police units assigned to the Attorney General’s Office.
The state Division of Professional Licensure shows Rudolph was a registered aesthetician and Bowen a licensed massage therapist. The state agency does not list places of occupation.
Aria Day Spa owner, Terry Mussari, 45, of Stoughton, has been charged with deriving support from prostitution for activities at the Aria Day Spa in Brockton and two others in Canton and Norwood.
The AG’s office also alleges employees at the day spas were selling drugs to customers and among themselves.
Caylin Rudolph was issued an aesthetician's license in May 2005 from Weymouth Vocational High School.
The license expired on Oct. 21, the day of her 24th birthday.
Authorities believe Caylin Rudolph was murdered, along with her mother Paula, and her mother's boyfriend Frederick Medina, by brother Donald Rudolph in Weymouth on the night of Nov. 10.
Gomes said it often takes several weeks to several months before complaints are scheduled for hearings and in Rudolph’s case a hearing had not been scheduled prior to Rudolph’s murder.
In light of Rudolph’s death, Gomes said the charge against Rudolph, which is a felony, likely will not proceed through the courts.
It is unclear what would have happened to the charges against Rudolph had the summons for a court date been processed completely before her murder.
Bowen, 39, who in court documents lists 220 North Main St., Brockton and 937 Plymouth St. in Abington as her addresses, faces four cases of her own--including two sex for a fee charges--in Brockton Superior Court.
In Bowen’s complaint against Rudolph, documents show Bowen states when she awoke on the morning of Oct. 6, 2011 she noticed the cap was loose on her bottle of Clonazepam, a much prescribed anti-anxiety and anti-seizure drug, which she filled the day before.
Bowen told police she should have had 90 pills in the bottle.
Bowen told police she was missing 29 pills and Bowen suspected Rudolph, who Bowen said was at the rooming house the day before.
The summons report continues:
“The victim states her boyfriend is the only other one who would have had access and he did not take them. The suspect was in her room last night with the victim’s pocketbook where the pills were kept. The suspect was aware that the victim filled the prescription yesterday. The victim stated the suspect is not answering her cell phone this morning. Ms. Bowen states she works with Ms. Rudolph at Aria Day Spa and is aware that she has a drug habit.”
Rudolph's remaining family members could not be reached for comment.
Bowen faces a number of legal matters, and from court documents and interviews it is unclear what may have happened to Bowen's pills.
One charge against Bowen dates from April, 6, 2011 when Bowen was charged with subsequent offense operating a motor vehicle with registration suspended and uninsured motor vehicle.
Two months later, on June 5, Bowen was arrested by Abington Police after several residents in Abington contacted police about a woman going door-to-door claiming she was collecting money for charity, including for victims of recent natural disasters.
Abington Police have charged Bowen with larceny under $250 by single scheme.
In Brockton on Oct. 7—the day after she lodged the complaint against Rudolph--Bowen was arrested for assault and battery after a fight she had with her then-boyfriend James Bernard Green, who lives at 220 N. Main St. (Rooming house pictured above)
Bowen left 220 N. Main after the fight and headed to a nearby Hess gas station where she called police at about 9:41 a.m.
When police investigated the situation, it was Bowen who was arrested and charged with assault and battery.
Herbert Matta, cousin of Ron Matta, who unsuccessfully ran against Linda Balzotti for mayor earlier this month, said Bowen had some type of relationship with James Bernard Green, known as “Tex,” and would stay at the rooming house Matta owns and was born in at 220 N. Main St.
Matta is the second prominent Brockton family to have a possible connection to the Aria Day Spa.
Philip Nessralla Jr., the city’s head attorney, helped Mussari incorporate her business in 2004 as a part of his private practice, and as a member of Rock Meadow LLC, owns Michael’s Plaza where Aria Day Spa operated until the raid.
Nessralla has said he had no idea what was taking place at Aria Day Spa and his filing of Mussari’s incorporation papers was routine.
Matta said he had no knowledge that Bowen or Rudolph may have worked at Aria Day Spa. Matta said he has never met Rudolph, but knows Bowen.
Matta said he did not know where either woman may have worked.
James Bernard Green, who declined comment, states in court documents Bowen is a recovering heroin addict and was doing well until she was prescribed Clonazepam, which she began abusing.
Matta, who is a witness in the assault and battery case, said Bowen was in “Never, Never Land,” at the time of the charge against Rudolph and the assault and battery against Green.
Matta said he suspects Bowen does not recall taking her own pills and would doubt any accusations she made against Green or Rudolph.
Matta said police charged Bowen because she went crazy on Green, who is a quasi-manager at the rooming house, including scratching him and biting his chest—injuries that were visible to police.
In an unusual step, Bowen’s court-appointed attorney, Daniel Kallenberg Jr., who has an office in Brockton at 1265 Belmont St., has asked the court to release Green’s and Matta’s probation records, and requests $500 for an investigator in Bowen’s defense on the simple, misdemeanor assault charge.
Kallenberg did not return repeated calls for comment.
Matta said about 7 to 10 years ago he was arrested and charged with assault and battery and breaking and entering when a woman at the 220 N. Main St. rooming house accused him of entering her room without permission.
He said the woman was causing problems and he had to take care of the situation.
"She said I didn't have permission to go into my own house," Matta said.
Matta said the charges were eventually dismissed.
Bowen’s legal matters increased on Oct. 25 and Nov. 3 when she was charged by Brockton Police for sexual conduct for a fee.
Court documents state in the Oct. 25 arrest, a Brockton Police detective working a prostitution sting, while driving in an unmarked vehicle, made eye contact with Bowen near Spring and Walnut streets.
He asked Bowen if she was working.
Police reports state Bowen said she was working and the detective asked her how much it would cost for fellatio—although the officer used the street term for the sex act.
Allegedly Bowen, who documents show has several tattoos, including one on her buttocks that reads, “guys ass,” said he should ask for “adult entertainment,” and her prices start at $40.
The officer asked if he could get fellatio for $50 and Bowen agreed.
The officer said he had to go to an ATM to get money. The officer then contacted another police officer who moved in and arrested Bowen.
In most court documents Bowen lists that she is unemployed.
However, in documents associated with the Oct. 25 arrest, she states she is self-employed and works at a place called Healing Hands.
Bowen is due back in Brockton court Dec. 2, the same day Caylin Rudolph's brother is due back in Quincy court for a pretrial hearing on the Weymouth murder charges.
