Police: Southington ‘suspicious death’ connected to investigation outside of Naugatuck PD

Hartford

Police say an early morning crime scene outside of the Naugatuck Police Department is connected to the suspicious death of a young woman in Plantsville. 

Police say around 5:30 Sunday morning, they began an investigation outside of the Naugatuck Police Department. They did not provide any more details about what or who they were investigating. 

A half an hour later, at 6 A.M., a woman in her 30s was found dead at her Plantsville home on Manor Road.  Police are calling her death suspicious, but say nobody is in custody. 

“Somebody sent us there on more of a welfare check,” Lt. Steven Elliot said.  “This was an isolated incident and the public should not be concerned.” 

Police say the woman lived with someone else who was unaware of her death.  They say that person is cooperating. 

State Police had their Major Crimes Unit out for hours Sunday as they investigated.  Dozens of pieces of evidence were taken away in baggies and envelopes. 

Neighbors like Hannah Platt and Lawrence Perry just want answers. 

“That’s scary and I don’t understand what happened – I want to know what happened,” Platt said. 

“The state crime scene showed up and all of us in the neighborhood thought what the heck is going on,” Lawrence Perry said.  “It’s upsetting because we’re a quiet neighborhood – Southington in general is a quiet town. It’s unfortunate that it happened.” 
 

The Naugatuck Police Department says there is no danger to the public in regards to the investigation.
