Just last week, we posted an article about a body that was found submerged in water on Mill Plain Road in Danbury.

Last Thursday (April 8), Danbury police reported that they received a phone call from someone who found a possible body in the water near the entrance to the neighborhood of Mill Plain Road. After rescue crews arrived to the scene, they found a deceased, unidentified white male.

According to newstimes, the unidentified body was taken to the Chief Medical Examiner, and the identity of the unidentified man was confirmed to be 52-year-old Todd Smith who was reported missing by Danbury Police on January 27, 2021 and last seen on January 16.

When Smith was originally missing, Danbury police sent out a silver alert and his last whereabouts were around the area of 93 Mill Plain Road in Danbury.

The cause of death is still under investigation with no signs of trauma. It seems that the body could have been there for quite some time. According to the article, Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour said, "It was down a very steep embankment, and I think that's probably why it took so long for someone to even see it. It's possible that it had been iced over during the colder times and now that things are thawing out, it was discovered."

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Todd Smith, and we will continue to update you with any further information.
