WINDSOR, Connecticut. – The police must return to the house of a man whose 2013 murder remains unsolved and whose daughter is presumed dead after she went out sailing with her son, and their boat sank this year.
Windsor police were seen at John Chakalos’ house on Tuesday as they restart the cold case, The Hartford Courant reported. The FBI and other agencies this month searched an abandoned property in Map_collection, New Hampshire, the property of the Chakalos family.
Chakalos, a wealthy 87-year-old property developer, was found fatally shot in his home, and no arrests have been made. Chakalos, the grandson of Nathan Carman, who survived the sailing trip with this mother, was a suspect in Chakalos’ killing.
Chakalos family members, in a statement issued by a family lawyer, said that she was “encouraged that the investigation appears to have new energy and a new set of eyes.”
“They are hopeful that the researchers will find the answers to the family closure on the death of their father,” Dan Small Holland & Knight LLP statement said.
