The decomposed body of a man a security officer found on the property of MassMutual in Enfield Thursday is Jody King, state police said.
King, a 28-year-old father of three from Ticonderoga, New York was working in the area and disappeared on April 20.
He had been in crash on Interstate 91 northbound in Enfield near Exit 48 that night but was gone by the time police arrived.
Lt. Paul Vance, of State Police, said the body was found in "a maze of drainpipe” and there was no telling how King could have gotten there. The medical examiner conducted an autopsy Friday but it has so far been inconclusive.
The night King disappeared, he had been at Sports Haven bar in New Haven and left around 7:30 p.m. At 8:57 p.m. 911 calls reported his truck was in a crash, according to information on a missing persons poster.
When police responded to that crash, they were unable to find the driver.
Two days later, K-9 teams searched the area and found personal effects that did belong to King, police said. Those, clothing and wallet, were found in a wooded area 100 yards from the highway. His cell phone was in the truck and his bank accounts had not been touched.
There had be no sign of King since, until his body was found.
King’s wife, Casey King, made a four-hour trip from her home to Enfield each weekend since her husband disappeared, the Waterbury Republican-American reported earlier this month.
Jody King last spoke to his wife on the day he disappeared and said he would be spending the night in Meriden, the newspaper reports.
She enlisted an additional helicopter to help police search and has posted a reward for information about his disappearance.
