Enfield Police Make Arrest in Death of 62-Year-Old Woman

Enfield police have made an arrest in the death of a 62-year-old woman.

Howard Bowen, 33, was arrested Friday morning and charged with murder in the death of Pamela Cote.

Cote was reported missing from the Windsor Court public housing complex on October 28, 2016. Her body was found in a wooded area behind Windsor court a short time later.

Cote died of asphyxiation, according to the medical examiner.

On November 3, detectives began investigating Bowen as a possible suspect and questioned him, according to police.

Investigators were able to establish probable cause to charge Bowen with Cote's murder, police said.

Bowen was already being held at the McDougall-Walker Correctional Institution in Suffield on an unrelated robbery charge.

He was brought to Enfield Superior Court on Friday where he was charged with murder.

Bowen is being held on a $1 million bond.
