Police Arrest Connecticut Father Accused of Killing His Daughter – NBC New York (47)

CONNECTICUT — The Naugatuck father accused of killing his 11-month-old daughter has been taken into custody, police said.

Waterbury police arrested Christopher Francisquini Friday afternoon around 3 p.m.

Francisquini has been on the run for two weeks. He is accused of killing his little daughter Camilla Francisquini. He was stopped in the area of ​​400 Grand St.

Naugatuck police said Camilla Francisquini was strangled, stabbed and dismembered on November 18. Authorities obtained an arrest warrant charging her father with murder in special circumstances and risk of injury to a minor. Bail for him was set at $5 million.

At a news conference Friday night, police said Francisquini’s arrest was a “direct result of the community.”

Police said a concerned citizen called the tip line, resulting in Francisquini’s arrest. Responding officers established a dialogue with him and he was ultimately taken into custody without incident at a bus stop in the area.

The caller told police that Francisquini had altered his appearance, but that he was still recognizable.

The police described the murder as heinous and horrible.

Police Chief Colin McAllister said officers have been working non-stop for the past two weeks to bring justice for Baby Camilla.

“[Estos oficiales] They will carry this case with them for the rest of their lives,” McAllister said.

He hopes the community feels a sense of relief. McAllister said he wants to reassure people that Francisquini will not be released and faces a series of charges.

“We hope that [la comunidad] I can breathe easier knowing that this violent criminal has been arrested,” said the police chief.

Camilla would have turned one this Saturday. The police have released a video of her arrest and it can be seen here.

Francisquini will appear in court on Monday.
