William Howell signed letter envelope set


A drifter already serving time in prison for killing a woman has been identified as the suspected serial killer police believe is responsible for the deaths of seven women whose bodies were dumped behind a shopping center in New Britain, Connecticut.

William Devin Howell, 45, first named by NBC Connecticut, was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in 2007, according to the state Department of Correction.

He is scheduled to be released March 14, 2019, but that release date could actually come sooner, since Howell has earned 449 days off his sentence for good behavior, according to the New Britain Herald.

Authorities announced that they believe they have identified the suspect, but would not confirm his name or provide other details because they said it could jeopardize the case. The victims all went missing around 2003.

Police and prosecutors have been investigating since 2007 and launched a task force in 2014. A $150,000 reward, the largest in the state’s history, was offered for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Six of the seven victims have been identified, police said. They are: Diane Cusack, Joyvaline “Joy” Martinez, Mary Jane Menard, Melanie Ruth Camilini, Janice Roberts (Daniel Whistnant) and Nilsa Arizmendi.

The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter is signed, Devin.
