Two Different Killers With the Same Killing Ground
On September 28, 1995, a patrol officer made a startling discovery behind a Hartford Road Strip Mall just a hundred yards off of Route 9. Wrapped in plastic and a sleeping bag, a dead young woman shot in the head once. Her age was estimated to be about 17 to 20 years old. Her race was white, possibly hispanic. She weighed 116 pounds, was 5'3, had brown hair and brown eyes. She had a vertical piercing above her naval. She was found wearing white farmer type jeans, white athletic socks, LA Gear shoes size 6 1/2, a size 34B maroon bra, a Gitano watch, a herringbone necklace and a ring with a pink stone on her right hand. There is a $50,000 reward authorized by the State of Connecticut for the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of this crime. The two pictures at left are composite sketches as to what the victim may have looked like.
In Late September of 2009, Police Departments from three states have made strides in getting closer to solving this woman's identity. They have linked her with an older female that was murdered around the same time and found in the Tolland State Forest in Massachusetts. The two are related and believed to be biological mother and daughter. They also theorize that the two women may have spent the better part of a year in the Albany, New York area. To see a sketch of the Massachusetts victim please visit here.
SOLVED: July 23, 2014 The identity of the two females are 17 year old Elizabeth Honsch and her 52 year old mother Marcia Honsch. They were from the town of Brewster, New York. 70 year old Robert Honsch, also known as Robert Tyree was arrested for the murders of his wife and their daughter. Honsch was found guilty of murdering his wife and awaits trial for the murder of Elizabeth Honsch.
In August of 2007 a man looking for a potential hunting sport behind a shopping center at 523 Hartford Road (near Exit 30 of Route 9) made a terrible discovery of a human skull in a wooded area. Searches by police would eventually reveal the remains of three unidentified women. Composite sketches were done of two of the victims and DNA was taken from all three. In 2010, 55 year old Diane Cusack of Oak Street New Britain would be identified as the second of the victims. In October of 2013, 24 year old Joyvaline Martinez was identified as the first victim that was found. In 2014, 40 year old Mary Menard's remains would be identified through DNA testing. Police would continue for years to go back to the scene and look for additional remains but were unsuccessful until May of 2015. With more equipment and highly trained search dog, law enforcement dug up additional ground and found the remains of at least four other people. The four other victims were identified as 29 year old mother of two, Melanie Camilini last seen in Waterbury. Nilsa Arizmendi of Wethersfield , Daniel Whistnant (a man who lived his life as a woman) of New Britain and 26 year old Marilyn Mendez Gonzalez all were last seen alive in 2003. Police also recovered video tapes of their killer, William Devin Howell having sex with two unknown women. Police are trying to find out their identities to see if they are safe or missing. He may also have victims in other states such as Virginia and North Carolina.
In November of 2017, Howell was sentenced to life in prison for six of the seven murders. He was already serving a 15 year sentence for manslaughter in the death or Nilsa Arizmendi.
It was in the town of Clinton, January 31, 1975 when some children playing behind a store made a gruesome discovery. Just along a path among some weeds was a plastic bag containing the body of a newborn blonde haired baby girl. It was determined that baby had been born sometime in Mid-December of 1974. It is believed the baby died of exposure and possibly suffocation. Because of the nature of the crime, it received national attention and a then 25,000 dollar reward for information. There are few leads in this case even though six years after the discovery of Baby X, police did receive an anonymous phone call from a woman who claimed she knew who abandoned the baby. The anonymous caller had said she would call back but never did. To this day no one knows what Baby X's name is or who abandoned her. Almost thirty years after her death flowers still routinely decorate her grave but by who? If you have any information about this case please call the Clinton Police Department at (860) 669-0451.
Who was Baby X?
3-28-2007 After thirty plus years, Law Enforcement has identified the mother of Baby X. Police believe that she was murdered by her. The States Attorney however, does not feel that there is enough evidence to bring the pair to trial. The Medical Examiner at the time determined the death a homicide but he passed away before the mother of Baby X was identified. The case is resolved yet technically suspended. A murder charge is still be possible.
Dinnertime Bandit Now Getting Meals in Prison
Greenwich Police and the FBI are looking for the whereabouts of Alan William Golder. Nicknamed the "Dinnertime Bandit", Golder is accused of robbing at least 16 residences in wealthy Greenwich and over 50 other burglaries in other states. Golder received the name the "Dinnertime Bandit" because of his knack of stealing valuable items in houses while the residents were home eating dinner. Golder is about fifty years old now and is known for keeping himself in great shape. He did serve prison time for murder even though it is believed he was not the triggerman in the homicide of a Long Island real estate developer in 1978. Golder is described as being 5'9, 150 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. At the age of 50, Golder's appearance most likely has changed.

CAPTURED AND CONVICTED: Golder will not get out of prison until about 2022. However, never count the clever cat burglar out.
Fifty year Old Disappearance Resolved
In 1956, 26 year old David MacDonald of Hartford seemngly disappeared on his way to Massachusetts on a business trip. He had last been seen withdrawing 255 dollars from a bank near where he worked. The Korean War Veteran had a job at the Wadsworth Anthenium museum and left behind a pregnant wife. In January of 2008, the nephew of Macdonald was contacted by an individual who claimed that Dave Macdonald had recently died and that started a life under a different name in Seattle, Washington. Few details are available but fingerprints from Macdonald's military records matched the man's body. A bittersweet ending that leaves still many unanswered questions.
