Massachusetts man wanted in murder of Amber Buckner arrested in New York



Stoughton Chief of Police Donna McNamara and Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey announce that a Massachusetts man with recent addresses in Stoughton and Brockton, was taken into custody Saturday afternoon on a Stoughton District Court warrant for the murder of Amber Buckner in Stoughton.

Buckner was pronounced deceased on-scene at 743 Park Street, Stoughton, where she was discovered in an outbuilding behind the main house on December 13, 2022.

“Stoughton Police and the Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Detective Unit have been working non-stop to collect evidence and intelligence in this case,” District Attorney Morrissey said. “When probable cause was met to obtain the warrant, we began working with the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (VFAS) of the Massachusetts State Police and law enforcement partners in the region.”

39-year-old Victor Carter was taken into custody early Saturday afternoon at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department working with members of VFAS. “We extend our particular gratitude to the Port Authority Police for their help and assistance in their jurisdiction.”

Victor Carter, who has recent addresses in Stoughton and Brockton, will have his first court appearance in New York to start the rendition process. The date of his Stoughton District Court arraignment will be announced when it has been determined through that process.
Carter had a relationship history with Buckner.

District Attorney Morrissey and Chief McNamara encourage the public to use the state-wide domestic violence services hotline: 877-785-2020 if needed.

“If you do not feel safe in your relationship, or you know someone who is not safe in their relationship, calling SafeLink at 877-785-2020 is a confidential first step on the path to safety,” District Attorney Morrissey said.
