A suspect in a 10-year-old homicide was taken into custody October 6 for a murder committed on January 28, 2006. Timothy Johnson of Norwich, CT turned himself in to authorities following an arrest warrant administered by New London Superior Court.

State Police began conducting the investigation in 2006 and recently developed information that linked Johnson to the murder of Anthony Hamilin.

The deceased Hamilin was located in a field at 438 Shewville Rd. in Ledyard, CT. Troop-E and Ledyard police assumed the investigation the night of Jan. 28 along with State Police detectives from the Eastern District Major Crime unit.

Johnson turned himself in to Troop E and was fingerprinted, photographed and is currently being held on a $1,000,000 bond pending his court date.
