Melissa Millan, a senior vice president at MassMutual, was found on Thursday lying in a Simsbury, Connecticut road with a stab wound to her chest. It is believed that the 54 year old banker was out jogging, according to police.
The mother of two was discovered by passing motorists and was subsequently taken to St. Francis Hospital where she passed away.
Initial reports were that Millan may have been involved in a hit-&-run but police announced over the weekend that they were investigating the case as a homicide.
MassMutual issued a statement saying,
“Melissa’s tremendous leadership qualities, business acumen and deeply caring nature will be missed by those who had the opportunity to work with her.”
Locals were shocked to hear the news about the death of their neighbor.
“I use this path a lot and I’m shocked and surprised…I always feel very safe,” said Lucinda, a 30 year resident of Simsbury, who declined to give her last name.
Simsbury, a community that is not accustomed to violent crime, has only experienced one previous homicide over the past 12 years.
