    Lindquist has been missing since the Dec. 20 fire destroyed the house on 70 Kenwood Estates. Janet Lindquist, 61, and Kenneth Lindquist, 56, a married couple who owned the house, were identified on Wednesday as the people found inside after the flames were put out.

    Police did not say what led them to identify Matthew Lindquist as a person of interest.

    Hartford Police and State Police Detectives arrested 24-year-old Hartford resident Ruth Correa and charged her with Murder with Special Circumstances, and others (WFSB)

    GRISWOLD, CT (WFSB) -

    The Connecticut State Police detectives arrested a woman in connection with the deaths of three Griswold residents.

    Hartford Police and State Police detectives arrested 24-year-old Hartford resident Ruth Correa and charged her with murder with special circumstances, home invasion, robbery, and arson.

    Police said the investigation began in December 2017 when Griswold residents, husband and wife, Kenneth and Janet Lindquist’s bodies were found amidst the rubble after their*Kenwood Estates home was destroyed by a large, early morning fire. *

    Shortly thereafter, Glastonbury Police responded to a fire in an abandoned car on Nanel Drive in the Glastonbury Luxury Apartments in Glastonbury just an hour later. Police said then that the*house fire in Griswold and Glastonbury were connected.

    Three days after the connected fires, police said they developed a person of interest in the deaths of Kenneth and Janet Lindquist.

    Finally.

    Griswold is about 25 miles from me. I kept checking the local news since December for any new developments.

    Can't imagine what this has been like for the family, especially with Matt having been named a person of interest. There were never any obituaries published for the parents and no public funeral announcements.

    There was word that Matt did have a drug problem, so a lot of people assumed he was the one responsible for killing his parents and the fire. Kid did not have a big network of friends, so if he was alive I expected there to be some leads on his whereabouts, but there was nothing. The weather here in CT was brutally cold for two weeks starting just after Christmas.

    Waiting to see if the coroner can establish cause of death.

    Yeah it's like everything was dropped from the news. Like the kid just disappeared. I'm glad that now his family and friends won't have to suffer anymore with not knowing

    Seems like LE may have dropped the ball if they did not search the area around the house. Sounds like they assumed that he had taken the family vehicle and torched it in Glastonbury that same morning. The reports make it sound like the body was found in the woods close to the house and only 10 feet away from the road.

    What I found interesting was how quickly LE homed in on this woman once the body had been identified. It was a matter of mere days for them to get a search warrant and it appears that they found property belonging to the Lindquists in her place. Why let the info languish for as long as it did?

    "On Monday, the state medical examiner released the causes of death for all three and the descriptions provide detail of the level of violence that occurred inside their Kenwood Estates home before they died.

    Janet Lindquist died of “homicidal violence including blunt impact injuries to the head” and smoke inhalation, which means she was alive when her house was set on fire.

    Kenneth Lundquist died of “homicidal violence including multiple skull fractures and traumatic brain injuries.” There was no smoke found in his lungs, indicating he was dead before the fire started, sources said.

    Matthew Lindquist escaped the house but was killed as he tried to run away, a source said. The medical examiner said that Matthew Lindquist died of multiple stab wounds to the head, chest and torso. A source said that he was stabbed more than 40 times."

    During the second day of testimony in New London Superior Court in the probable cause hearing for her adopted brother, Sergio Correa, Ruth Correa walked Assistant State’s Attorney Stephen Carney through the hours before and after midnight on Dec. 20, 2017 that ended with Matthew, Kenneth and Janet Lindquist mutilated and dead and their family home at 70 Kenwood Estates destroyed by fire.

    Ruth Correa, who acknowledged her testimony was given in exchange for a 40-year sentence agreement on three counts of murder, said she and her brother traveled to Griswold as part of a scheme to steal guns from Kenneth Lindquist, a plan she said was worked out without her knowledge between her brother and 21-year-year-old Matthew Lindquist as part of a drug deal.

    Ruth Correa said she and her brother pulled up to a wooded area near the Lindquist home and met with Matthew Lindquist, who she described as fidgety and nervous. She said the younger Lindquist jumped from the vehicle with Sergio Correa on his heels.

    ″(Sergio) hit him with a machete in the back of the head,” she said.

    The pair followed the injured man into the woods where Ruth Correa was handed a double-edged sword by her brother who she said “made me stab him.” The two, each armed with a knife, continued to stab Matthew Lindquist at least 20 times as the young man pleaded with alleged killers.

    “I could smell it, the metallic smell of blood,” she said. “We left him there covered with sticks. And we walked to the house.”

    As courtroom guests sobbed and Eric Lindquist, the brother and son of the victims, was comforted by a court victim’s advocate, Ruth Correa in excruciating detail recalled entering the home and the subsequent hours of terror inflicted on Janet and Kenneth Lindquist as the Correa siblings, armed with a golf club and bat, looted the home, a crime she said her brother planned to pass off as a robbery by black men.

    She said Kenneth Lindquist and her brother struggled on the first floor of the ranch-style home before Sergio Correa struck the homeowner with the bat several times until he was still.

    “It sounded like a bat hitting wood,” she said.
