East Hartford, Conn. (WTNH) - East Hartford police obtained a search warrant to collect evidence from Brett Bednarz, whose mother was one of three people found dead on Thanksgiving Day.
Bednarz was picked up at his home on Rachel Road in Manchester Thursday morning and brought to East Hartford police headquarters where the warrant was served.
"He was picked up today, no argument. He didn't cause any trouble with us. He's not talking to us. Brought him to the police department without any problems virtually no conversation, certainly about the case," said Lt. Curt Stoldt, East Hartford Police Department.
Police say he has retained a lawyer.
Afterwards, Bednarz was taken into custody by Manchester police. They had an arrest warrant for him based on a previous search. According to police, that earlier search uncovered marijuana in Bednarz's home.
Bednarz's mother, Beverly Therrien, along with Pamela Johns and Michael Ramsay, were found brutally murdered in Therrien's home on Naomi Drive. Police were called to the by a relative who was concerned about the welfare of the people living in the home.
Police have said the killings were not a random event. Bednarz's sister, Candice, is also a person of interest in the case. The two live together.
