On April 8, 2021, the body of an adult male was found in a retention pond at 55 Mill Plain Rd. in Danbury and transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.
The medical examiner found no apparent signs of trauma and could not provide an exact cause of death, as toxicology reports are still pending. However, the medical examiner was able to positively identify the deceased male as Todd Smith, a Danbury resident who was reported missing to the Danbury Police in January 2021.
While a case investigation is still open, at this time, there does not appear to be any foul play involved in Mr. Smith’s untimely passing. The Danbury Police Department extends heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
