Nine years have passed since Kyle Seidel, a 34-year-old father of three from Waterford, was killed in a shooting outside a bowling alley and Waterford police are again asking for information to help identify the person who killed him.

On Dec. 21, 2012, Seidel had left home to pick up food from the Lucky Inn Chinese Restaurant on Boston Post Road, but never made it home. He was found dead in the Family Bowl parking lot.

The video below is from 2013.

Kate Seidel is asking the public for any information to help solve her husbands murder. Back in December he went out for food and was later found dead.

Police said the Waterford Police Department Investigative Services Division, the New London County States Attorney’s Office and members of the Chief’s State’s Attorney’s Office in Rocky Hill, Connecticut continue to investigate.

A reward of $25,000 is being offered for tips in the case.
