Police Dug Up Cromwell Home Looking for Remains: Sources

The search for remains at a Cromwell home is over, sources close to the investigation told NBC Connecticut. 

Officials were searching for the remains of Rosa Del Gado's daughter in connection to an old case involving former Hartford police officer, Julio Camacho.

The FBI were digging up  the front yard at 2 Prospect Hill Road in Cromwell as part of an ongoing investigation on Monday.

At the time of the dig, no one at the scene was commenting on the investigation and it was unclear what officers were looking for.

"This is an isolated case with no threat to the citizens of the Town of Cromwell," a statement from Cromwell Police said during the dig.

The Hartford Courant reports that the home once belonged to former Hartford police officer Julio Camacho, whose 21-year-old girlfriend Rosa Delgado and their 4-year-old daughter Rosita disappeared in 1997.

"There’s a lot of negative, bad vibrations that came from his ownership of the house," a neighbor, Mark Corvo, told NBC Connecticut.

Corvo has lived in a home by the Prospect Hill home since the 1960s.

Delgado's headless, handless body was found a year later in a northern New Jersey lake. The child was never found.

No one has been charged in connection with the disappearances.
