A suspect tried to flee the area as officers closed in on finding a missing woman dead in a basement, but officers arrested this person on unrelated charges and the investigation continues, say cops in Willimantic, Connecticut.

Authorities did not identity the people involved, but city Police Chief Paul M. Hussey called it one of the worst cases he had ever seen.

“This is a deeply troubling case on many levels, and one of the worst cases I have seen in 27 years in law enforcement,” he said.  “Our condolences go out to the family of the victim.”

Officers said the woman’s family contacted them Saturday at approximately 2 p.m. Relatives said she had been missing since the mid-morning. They believed her to be in Willimantic, which is about 30 miles east of Hartford.
