NORWICH – A Norwich woman missing since Monday has been found dead, and one of her former tenants has been charged with her murder. The body of Tammy L. Periard, 45, was discovered by police early Thursday morning during the execution of a search warrant. Daniel L. Brown, 45, of 56 Henry St., has been arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder, a Class A-1 felony. Police have indicated more people may have been involved, and new arrests may still be made.
“I hope that they’ve found the right person and everyone else involved. I pray that justice is served. No one deserved this, not my sister,” said Periard’s sister, Lisa Fitch.
“I am pleased with the investigation that was conducted. Investigators worked very closely with District Attorney Joseph McBride. At this time I can not speak of any specifics of this crime, because many leads are being investigated, and other people may still be involved,” said Norwich City Police Chief Joseph Angelino.
