EARLIER STORY WILLINGTON — Authorities continue to search Sunday for a man they say is a suspect in a major assault that left one man dead and injured another Friday morning. Just after 9 a.m., troopers from Troop C responded to an incident on Mirtl Road to find two victims — both elderly men — suffering from injuries after an assault with an “edged weapon,” State Police said. One victim, identified by police as 62-year-old Willington resident Theodore Demers, later died from his injuries. State police on Saturday released the identity of a potential suspect: 23-year-old Peter Manfredonia, who they say was seen leaving the scene of the homicide and serious assault on Mirtl Road. Manfredonia, state police said, is considered armed and dangerous. “It is unclear what prompted the assault,” state police said. Manfredonia was last seen wearing dark clothing and was on a large red sport motorcycle, wearing a multicolored helmet, possibily red and white. Manfredonia, a 2015 graduate of Newtown High School, is majoring in finance and mechanical engineering at the University of Connecticut. A GoFundMe campaign set up Friday to support Demers’ family raised $41,950 as of Sunday morning. “The Demers family has suffered an unspeakable and incomprehensible tragedy,” wrote Matt Emond, Willington resident and the creator of the GoFundMe page. “We are trying to raise some money to assist the family in any way possible. Please feel free to share and support a wonderful family. Anything helps.” “Connecticut State Police are actively looking for this suspect that has had ties to Newtown,” Newtown police said Saturday night. “While police do not believe he is currently in Newtown, that certainly can change.” The Newtown Police Department urged its residents to be “aware and on the lookout” for Manfredonia as a precaution. Anyone who sees the suspect is asked to call 911 immediately. Do not approach the suspect. Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call Troop C at 860-896-3200.
