After the June 11 arrest of Luis A. Rodriguez for the 2001 murder of Walnut Beach resident Kelsey Monahon, I got curious about other long-term unsolved homicides in Milford.

-Unidentified male remains (1994)
-Unidentified male remains (1992)

-Constance Roberts (1982)
-Blasé Miserendino (1978)

-Charles McCoy (1968)
