Re: If There's a Death in Your House, Can You Keep the Police Out
I see no "stop and identify" statute for Mass. That means you do not have to identify yourself to the police.
as to the police entering in the case of a death; I would think it would be based on the circumstances. If there is no reason to believe there is criminal activity involved, I do not see the cops being able to enter without your permission.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
