Update: Seymour police identified the man Feb. 22 as Leonardo Cirino, 40. No cause or manner of death has been determined by the state’s Medical Examiner’s Office. However, police said the man’s death looks to be “medical in nature.”
Detectives from Seymour and state police are at the scene of an Old Town Road home investigating an untimely death.
A person’s body was taken from the property about 8:30 a.m. by a state vehicle.
Seymour police posted about the incident on Facebook at about 10:15 a.m.
Two evidence markers dotted the driveway to the home on Old Town Road with police crime scene tape blocking the driveway.
Police at the scene referred all questions to Seymour Police Deputy Chief Paul Satkowski. A message seeking comment was left with the deputy chief Friday morning.
An investigator from the Ansonia-Milford Judicial District’s state’s attorney’s office was also at the scene Friday morning.
At noon a family member posted on the Valley Indy website saying her brother collapsed at the scene, but foul play was not involved. She asked that the family’s privacy be respected.
First Selectman Kurt Miller said he was notified by Police Chief Michael Metzler about 6 a.m. of a “police investigation” at the address.
He said Satkowski was coordinating with state police and would release more information in a prepared statement.
A state police major crime squad vehicle was at the scene Friday morning, as was a Seymour “emergency services unit” truck.
The narrow, dead-end street is off Bungay Road.
Old Town Road resident Joe Stupic said he heard several sirens at some time after midnight early Friday and initially thought police were rushing to an address on Bungay Road.
