Norwich man accused of murder reportedly has history of violence

NORWICH – The man accused of killing a well-known Norwich area apartment supervisor carries a history of domestic violence and drug abuse, former in-laws, co-workers and neighbors say.

“There was always screaming and hollering,” said Tammy Towndrow, a former neighbor to Daniel L. Brown, Sr. during two separate stints on Pleasant and Henry streets. “It was always a domestic dispute.”



Brown, 45, Norwich, is now charged with the murder of 45-year-old city resident Tammy Periard after she was found dead early Thursday morning in the first-floor apartment she rented to Brown on 56 Henry St. Periard, of 167 E. Main St., was reported missing at noon on Tuesday after she disappeared around 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Periard’s family confirmed that she and Brown had known each other since high school, and that he occasionally helped out the property manager by performing side-work for her as a favor.
