Camilla Francisquini, the suspect’s infant daughter, was just a month shy of being 1 year old. Naugatuck Police said that the girl died of neck compressions, and stab wounds and was dismembered at home, according to WSAW. The suspect is considered “armed and dangerous.” Naugatuck Police Chief Colin McCallister said that based on the infant’s body, “We can clearly rule out this was an accident, this was an intentional act.”

Who is Christopher Francisquini?

Francisquini was on parole for a 2012 assault for which he served 10 years when the horrific killing took place. Following his release from prison in 2021, he was arrested in November 2021 for a carjacking at a West Haven hospital, reported Crime Online. A day after his carjacking arrest, he allegedly attacked a correction officer in an attempt to flee from custody. He was released from custody in July 2022, according to CT Insider. The New Haven Register reported that Francisquini was free on bonds totaling $375,000 and under GPS monitoring when he killed his infant daughter.

“Francisquini, as well as the child’s biological mother were involved in a dispute in Waterbury,” police said during a news conference on Monday, November 21, 2022. “It was during that incident that the GPS monitor was removed,” reported WSAW. The mother returned to their shared home but it is unclear whether she discovered her daughter’s body and called 911. The nature of the couple's argument also remains unclear.

McCallister added that they possibly found the 2006 Chevrolet Impala Francisquini was driving on Interstate 91 at Exit 8 and he may be in the New Haven area. Officers searched for him throughout the weekend and the FBI was called to assist. The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Francisquini’s whereabouts. The motive behind the gruesome crime is not known.
