East Windsor police arrest son for murder of 73-year-old father


EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — East Windsor police arrested Gabriel Hesse on Friday for the murder of his 73-year-old father.

Gabriel Hesse was taken into custody at his residence around 7 p.m. and held on a $2,000,000 court set bond.

He is scheduled to appear in Enfield Superior Court on Nov. 18.

Officers were called to the 200 block of Fairway Drive on an early October morning after a family member said they found Halsey Hesse Junior dead in the kitchen of a mobile home.

The person said they could not get in contact with him and decided to do a welfare check.

Initially, officers were investigating the case as a suspicious death. They moved the case to an “active crime scene investigation.”

An autopsy was performed and Hesse was found to have multiple stab wounds through his body, according to police.

Officers said there is no threat to the public. East Windsor police and State Police worked together on the case.

*Editor’s note: Officials originally said the man was 70. The story was been updated to reflect his true age.
