    Husband and Wife Killed in Griswold Fire Identified

    (Published Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017)

    The husband and wife killed in a Griswold house fire last week have been identified. 

    The victims of the fire were identified as Janet Lindquist, 61, and Kenneth Lindquist, 56, who both lived in the home. The cause and manner of their death have not been determined.

    Officials were investigating a house fire on Dec. 21 said the fire was connected to a car fire 40 miles away in Glastonbury.

    Firefighters responded to 70 Kenwood Estates in Griswold around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday after a neighbor called 911 to report a fire and crews found two bodies in the charred remains of the home.  

    Griswold Volunteer Fire Chief Tom Holowaty said three adults lived in the house.

    Police said there was a link between the house fire and the abandoned car found in flames at the Glastonbury Luxury Apartments in Glastonbury Wednesday morning. State police said the car’s VIN number was connected to the Griswold home, but did not provide any details of how they were linked.

    State police said they have identified a person of interest in the Griswold house fire, but they are withholding the person’s name as detectives continue their investigation.
