Nearly two weeks have passed since baby Camilla Francisquini was found dead in her Naugatuck home, the victim of what police have called a brutal and gruesome death. Her father is suspected of killing the baby girl who would have celebrated her first birthday on Saturday and the police and the FBI are urging anyone with information about where he is to come forward.

Christopher Francisquini, 31, is suspected of killing his daughter, then fleeing Naugatuck on Nov. 18 and law enforcement authorities have been searching for him since.

He was last seen in New Haven on Quinnipiac Avenue in Fair Haven on Nov. 19 and he has possible connections to Meriden and New Haven as well as New York and Massachusetts, officials said.

Naugatuck police said Camilla Francisquini was choked, stabbed and dismembered. Authorities have obtained an arrest warrant that charges her father with murder with special circumstances and risk of injury to a minor.

Camilla would have celebrated her first birthday on Dec. 3.

Police are wearing pink bracelets that say "Justice for Camilla" and said they will be wearing pink until they apprehend her father.

Police called the crime "horrific and gruesome" and said it is one of the most difficult and trying cases they have ever had to investigate.

Bond for him has been set at $5 million.

Police also issued a warning in the event that someone is helping Francisquini hid from authorities.

If anyone is housing or harboring Francisquini, they could potentially face charges.

Authorities said Francisquini is considered armed and dangerous. He has distinct tattoos that include an angry clown on his left hand, Stars and “Milla” on his right hand and “CME” on the right side of his neck.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to Francisquini's capture and prosecution.

Police said he could have altered his physical appearance, so they are asking anyone who sees someone who resembles Francisquini to contact them.

Anyone with information on where he is is asked to call police immediately and call 1-800-CALL-FBI(1-800-225-5324).
