Police identified the victim’s husband, 45-year-old Robert Faison, as the suspect in the death. On July 30, with the assistance of CT State Police and NYPD, Faison was located at a homeless shelter in New York City and was taken into custody.

Faison was extradited back to Connecticut on August 11 and has been incarcerated since his arrest in New York City.

On October 14, Faison was arrested by warrant for the murder of Hopkins and is being held on $2 million bond.

If you suspect a friend or family member might be a victim of domestic violence, there are signs to look out for.

“If you feel like your friend or family member is a little more isolated, or not as communicative with you. If you feel like there are behavior patterns that have changed with that person. I also tell people, just listen. Listen to the way they’re talking about their relationship, or they’re talking about their interaction,” said Meghan Scanlon, the president and CEO of the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
