CSAO: Statement of the New Britain State's Attorney

Statement of the Office of the State's Attorney for the Judicial District of New Britain

Brian Preleski, State's Attorney for the Judicial District of New Britain, released the following statement today, June 27, 2013:

Since last week, the Bristol Police Department and the New Britain State’s Attorney’s office have, at the request of authorities in Massachusetts, been assisting in their investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the homicide of Odin Lloyd.

At this point, one individual, Carlos Ortiz of Bristol, has been charged in Connecticut as a Fugitive from Justice. On Wednesday, June 26, 2013, Mr. Ortiz appeared in Superior Court, G.A. No. 17, in Bristol and waived extradition to Massachusetts.

Both the Bristol Police Department and the New Britain State’s Attorney’s Office will continue to provide whatever assistance we can in connection with this investigation. As the investigation is ongoing, we can have no further comment at this time. All documents related to this matter have been sealed by order of the court.
