UNION, Conn. (WWLP) – Connecticut State Police have arrested a person of interest after the “suspicious death” of a woman on Tuesday. The department posted on their official Facebook page that Steven Flood, 32, is currently being charged with larceny for being in possession of the deceased woman’s car.
State police say that on Tuesday morning, they were called to a house in New Fairfield, which is near Danbury, for a well-being check. Entering the house, troopers found a 55 year-old woman dead.
“The manner in which she was found and injuries noted to her body were suspicious in nature,” state police wrote.
In their investigation, troopers began to consider Flood a person of interest in the case. State troopers began checking residences in the eastern part of the state in an effort to locate him. At around midday Thursday, a state trooper and a police dog found Flood camping in the woods in the town of Union, which is on the Massachusetts state line.
Flood was arrested on the larceny charge and taken back to western Connecticut, where he was held on $100,000 bond. He will be arraigned Friday at Danbury Superior Court.
Connecticut State Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death.
The identity of the deceased woman has yet to be released.
