Serial killer still at large in Connecticut



Police in New Britain have offered a $150,000 reward for information that will lead to the capture of a serial killer. The remains of Mary Jane Menard, 40; Diane Cusack, 53; and Joyvaline “Joy” Martinez, 24. have already been identified and linked to the same person. City and state officials are now on the trail of the killer who left them behind the Hartford Road plaza in 2007.

Police Chief James Wardwell flanked by state officials including Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, New Britain State’s Attorney Brian Preleski and Supervisory Inspector Michael Sullivan announced the link between all the cases and also confirmed confirmed that Menard, a local substance abuse counselor, was “Jane Doe 3.”

Police say their deaths are the work of a serial killer.

“Our investigation has revealed that these murders were committed by the same offender at different times,” Chief James Wardwell, New Britain Police Department, said. “Based on the information we have developed, I’m able to tell you today that these murders appear to be completely unrelated to the killing of Elizabeth Honsch, who was found murdered behind the same mall back in 1995.”
