W.D.H. is turning out to be one very strong suspect.
Looks like you're right on the money.
Sources ID Suspected Serial Killer
The man suspected of killing at least seven people and burying their bodies behind a New Britain shopping center has been identified as William Devin Howell, 45, who is imprisoned at Garner Correctional Institution, on unrelated manslaughter charges, multiple sources familiar with the investigation tell NBC Connecticut exclusively.
Howell’s current 15-year sentence stems from the homicide of Nilsa Arizmendi, a 33-year-old Wethersfield resident who disappeared in 2003. Her body was never recovered. Howell was on trial for her murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter in a deal with prosecutors in 2007, according to the state Division of Criminal Justice website.
