    ***State Police Detectives Investigate Harwinton Untimely Death***
    On March 21, 2017 at approximately 10:40 a.m. troopers from Troop L-Litchfield were notified that a deceased baby had been located in a bag in Bristol Reservoir #4. The reservoir is located on Route 72 and Route 4 in Harwinton. The City of Bristol Water Department maintains the reservoir.
    Detectives from Western District Major Crime (WDMC) responded to the scene and will assume the investigation.


    The Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) will conduct a post-mortem examination to determine cause and manner of death, and help WDMC identify the baby.


    The Connecticut State Police Dive Team also responded to the scene and will assist WDMC. State Police divers will conduct a search for possible evidence.


    The City of Bristol Water Department has consulted with the Connecticut Department of Health. The reservoir has not been used in a few days, and will remain offline. The City of Bristol Water Department stresses that the public water supply is safe and they have no further concern for the safety of the public water supply.

    "Just the disregard for life is shocking to me," said Harwinton First Selectman Michael Criss. "This kind of stuff doesn't happen in Harwinton."

    In Connecticut, there is a Safe Haven Law in place that allows parents to give up their babies if they are 30 days or younger. Parents can drop their child off at any Connecticut hospital emergency room, and if the child hasn't been abused, you will not be arrested.


    Anyone with information in this case should contact police.

    Oh wow. I know exactly where that is.

    Why do people do these things?

    I would never read about anything like this in the news when I was growing up in Bristol, CT when I was young.

    I'm wondering the same thing. Possibly a teenager had been hiding a pregnancy? This is terrible.

    I agree. I want to believe that's what happened. Teens panic and do some really horrible things. If I had been sexually active as a teen, and my parents found out, my extremely religious family would have FREAKED OUT! Without a pregnancy I would have felt my life was over.

    CT - Harwinton, infant boy found in Bristol Reservoir 3/21/17

    More info at link. There's not much to go on as of yet. No info on gender, age or race. This gives me chills as I drove right by this reservoir for years on my way to work. Rte. 72 is very busy, but Harwinton is a very rural, heavily wooded town and so small that it shares schools with neighboring Burlington and even many CT residents have never heard of it. The reservoir is a drinking water source for Bristol, a larger city farther down 72. Very sad and hopefully whoever is responsible is brought to justice soon:

    omg! poor little i dont care if they were a teen, there is no reason to do this to a little one. they could have gave the child to the hospital or police or fire department but they killed the baby.
