Questions remain unanswered two years after Simsbury woman's death

SIMSBURY, CT (WFSB) -

It has been two years since a mother of two, who was a Mass Mutual executive, was found stabbed to death in Simsbury.

On the anniversary of the tragic day, people who live in town want to know what happened to 54-year-old Melissa Millan, and they're hoping authorities haven't given up on the case, after so many unanswered questions.

"We were wondering how something like that could happen, especially here,” said Virginia Cox, of Simsbury.

Cox has lived in Simsbury for 10 years and regularly walks her dog on the trail near the center of town.

On her walks, she said she often thinks about Millan, who was found stabbed to death along Iron Horse Boulevard.

A driver had called police around 8 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2014. When officers arrived, they found Millan’s body along the popular trail.

At first, police said they thought she was hit by a car, but it was later uncovered that her death was much more violent.

"I think everybody wants to know who did it, and to have closure to the family and to punish whoever did it. It kind of, truly feels like someone got away with murder,” Cox said.

Millan is remembered as a hard worker, a dedicated mother, and an avid runner.

A memorial still sits along the trail, and is something runners, walkers and residents who live in Simsbury see each and every day.

Federal and state investigators were called in to help with the case.

"I hope they keep it going so there will finally be justice ... people just want justice,” Cox said.
