Wilton PD: Parisot Case is 'Far from Over'

All available evidence has been turned over to the state's attorney, says Captain Lombardo of the Wilton Police Department in an open letter to Wilton.

It has been nearly four years since the of Nicholas Parisot occurred leaving an open wound that has not yet healed.

Nicholas Parisot, a , was the son of Rick Parisot and Kate Throckmorton. He was riding his motorized dirt bike on some trails behind his grandmother’s home on June 13, 2008, when he struck a rope that was purposefully strung across the trail resulting in his death.

Detectives from the have interviewed many, many people, some multiple times in an effort to solve this case. There are no known eye witnesses to this crime. In addition, members of the Conn. State Police Major Crime Scene Unit, state prosecutors, and investigative personnel have all worked closely with our detectives combing their total efforts.

The Conn. State Forensic Science Laboratory has examined evidence and DNA samples in connection with the investigation and evidence has also been examined by the FBI Forensic Science Laboratory in Virginia. Noted forensic science expert Dr. Henry Lee and his team of scientists have also reviewed the case forensics and found that scientifically all that could be determined from the evidence was accomplished. At this point, all the evidence gathered has been turned over to the state’s attorney for their review and consideration on further action. The Wilton Police Department continues to investigate this tragic crime and provide further information to the state’s attorney in hopes that they will issue arrest warrants and prosecute the offender or offenders who have committed this crime.

Along the lines of our investigation, it is our hope that those in the community have cooperated with detectives in the past will continue to do so and those who have not, will come forward to provide every shred of information they have to investigators. Please search your soul and ask yourself if this were your child, wouldn’t you want to others to cooperate with authorities to help you and your family.

This case is far from over. Our investigation will not end until there is closure for the Parisot family and the offender and/or offenders are brought to justice. The Wilton Police Department and the Wilton Police Commission are fully committed to bringing those responsible for this crime to justice and will steadfastly continue to investigate this crime until such time as those responsible are arrested and prosecuted.

This police bumbling is far worse than the Margolies murder in Greenwich in 1981. We know who did it and it's still sitting on someone's desk with annual rhetoric given out by Wilton police that we will get our man. This is a disgrace.

It's so tragic for the Parisot family that this case has not been solved. My child was in class with Nick and will be graduating with WHS Class of 2012 on June 23rd. I sure hope some mention is made of Nick and that he is not forgotton on that day. He should be sitting there with those students. I pray every day, and every day I pray for Nick and his family.

Lets be realistic, with this amount of time past either the police are done investigating or they have a trick up there sleave. Its no secret who killed him, everyone knows who the kid is and that he was whisked off to California by his parents. I heard they are waiting to arrest the kid on his 18th bday so they can get more serious charges but that sounds like BS to me. I hope its true though. In my humble opinion the cops should have said to hell with the wilton elitists hiding behind lawyers (which is what that family is) and gone all out, but I think they were afraid of lawsuits. Very, very sad.

Also Mr Lombardo can you go into more detail about why we should hold out hope? Do you have evidence you are about to break out? Do you expect an arrest in the next few months? If the answer to either is no then this column should be deleted. And this is from a Wilton Police Supporter.

The Wilton Police Department should be ashamed of themselves. Now if this was a son of the Chief do you 'think' the case would have been solved in a New York second? Yah, I thought so...

I don't live in Wilton, but from just reading the chief's letter and genuine plea for information from residents that would aid in making charges--it appear that people who have relevant information are remaining silent, perhaps to protect their guilty friends.

Why do some men refuse to ask for directions? Just a reminder that the Vidocq Society is a Nonprofit, 501c(3) corporation, which, by the terms of its charter, is a fraternal organization comprised of professionals and non-professionals who meet in a confidential social setting to discuss unsolved crimes. Our work is pro bono and we want to help. Our sole purpose is to act as a catalyst and provide guidance to law enforcement agencies to assist them in solving these unsolved crimes. You can learn more about the Vidocq Society by going to Vidocq.org The TV program 20/20 will feature a Vidocq Case on 1 October 2010 which explains how they work.

There is no refuge for the guilty. They must carry it around with them every single day, and while it may take (and has taken) far longer than anyone wanted, resolution will come. It will come. Those who have knowledge, or even those who prefer to think they don't have knowledge (to escape questioning), know in their hearts that the right thing to do is to share whatever information they have. It is not dangerous to do so--the truth is not dangerous. We are, and always will, stand up for Nick and the Parisot family. Go to www.standupfornick.org or email standup4nick@gmail.com

Jlo - I remind you of the Martha Moxley case which was "resolved" by putting Michael Skakel away (FINALLY) over 20 years AFTER he killed her. No family is above the law - not the Kennedy family either. So I don't care how "elite" this family is who whisked away that kid and replanted him to do more damage to the poor unsuspecting people out in California, but if he is guilty, he will be caught and charged eventually. It's "only" been 4 years. Justice is patient my dear. Sometimes too patient of our liking but the perpetrator will be caught eventually and charged with some form of homicide or murder. Because that's what it was. If you set a trap to kill or injure a person or an animal for that matter, you are committing a criminal act. If there is a death, then you have committed murder. As Ronald Reagan so eloquently said to the terrorists back in his days, "you can run, but you can't hide". If this kid is guilty then the law will catch up with him. There is no statute of limitations on committing a murder here. If guilty, he will be found and eventually and tried as an adult at that time. The risk he is taking now is that if he came forward as a child, he would be tried as a child, not as an adult. But evidently, that's the gamble he wants to take. Michael Skakel made that same error in judgment, among others, too.

This is bullshit.
