Investigation Into Death of Woman Leads to Norwich Apartment

Erika Cirioni missing person and State Website

The investigation into the death of a 26-year Norwich, Connecticut, woman who disappeared in 2006 and was found buried in Montville four years ago has led police to an apartment in Norwich.

It’s not clear what police are investigating at 450 East Main St. in Norwich, but state police said new information led them there.

Police are investigating the homicide of Erika Cirioni, a mother of two, who disappeared on New Year’s Eve in 2006 and was reported missing.

Six years later, children playing in the woods off Oxoboxo Dam Road in Montville found her remains, partially buried.

State police said they learned of the discovery around 4 p.m. on March 18, 2012 and Cirioni’s death was eventually classified a homicide. 

When the case was still a missing person case, the Division of Criminal Justice included Cirioni in the first deck of “cold case” playing cards distributed through the state criminal justice system. Later, a $50,000 reward was offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction on the case.
