Police Make Arrest in the Suspicious Death of a New Fairfield Woman
State Police have arrested a person of interest in the suspicious death of a 55-year-old New Fairfield woman.
According to the Connecticut State Police Facebook page, Steven Flood has been charged with third degree larceny for stealing the dead woman's car. After detectives finished processing the evidence at 26 Candlewood Road in New Fairfield, where the woman was found, Flood was named as "a person of interest" in the woman's suspicious death, because according to a Major Crime Squad investigation, "The manner in which she was found and injuries noted to her body were suspicious in nature."
Yesterday (May 4) at noon, a CT State Trooper with his K-9 companion located Flood camping in the woods in the Town of Union, where he was arrested for allegedly being in possession of the deceased woman's vehicle. Flood was transported to the Litchfield barracks, where he was processed and is being held on $100,000 bail.
So far, Flood has not been charged or arrested in connection with the woman's death. He will be arraigned on the larceny charge tomorrow (May 5) in Danbury Superior Court. State Police reminds everyone that this is still an active investigation. I will deliver any updates on this story when they become available.
