Marshall held two full-time jobs. Before reporting to work at the MBTA, FOX 25 has learned that he had worked an overnight shift as a dispatcher at Boston Police headquarters, where he answers calls for the Boston Housing Authority.

Marshall has held that dispatching job for 26 years and a BHA spokeswoman says he'll continue to work there.
The MBTA did not release Marshall's name Wednesday and an MBTA spokesman denied that was an attempt to cover anything up, calling it a personnel matter.
