Danbury Police Make Arrest in Condo Homicide

Danbury Police have made an arrest in the homicide investigation of Jason James Lowry Hoffman, which occurred at the Sterling Woods Condominium Complex Sept. 4, 2019. Earlier this morning, David Ramos, a friend of Hoffman’s and resident of the condominium where Hoffman was killed was taken into custody.

During the course of the investigation, detectives developed sufficient information through interviews and evidence collection to apply for a warrant for Ramos’ arrest. The warrant application was approved on Sept. 9, 2019, linking Ramos to Hoffman’s death.

Ramos eluded apprehension until this morning when he was found in a friend’s apartment located on Scuppo Rd. in Danbury. The court has sealed the information contained in the warrant affidavit, which limits what can be revealed at this time.

Ramos is currently being held at the Danbury Police Department pending arraignment in Superior Court or the posting of a predetermined court set bond of $250,000. Investigators believe Ramos will face additional charges related to the incident as the court case moves forward and is looking into the possibility of others also facing charges related to the death.
