Police ID Man Whose Remains Were Found in Greenwich Park in 2017

Police have identified the man whose remains were found in a stream in a Greenwich park nearly two years ago, but they have not determined how he died.

Town of Greenwich Parks workers found a bone in a stream at Helen Binney Kitchel Natural Park, near Laddins Rock Road, on April 26, 2017, and police spent days searching the entire park and the stream, up to where it crosses Interstate 95, as well Binney Park pond, for additional remains.

Police did find additional bones and determined they were all from the same person.

The office of the chief medical examiner analyzed the bones and determined the person died in 2015 or 2016.

Then DNA samples were eventually collected and the State of Connecticut Crime Lab matched them to Peter Robinson, a man who was homeless in the Stamford area. Police said he was around 50 years old when he died.

His family has been notified.

Police have not determined the cause of Robinson’s death and they are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone who knew Robinson in the 2014 to 2016 timeframe and has information about him, his known associates or any other relevant information are asked to call the Greenwich Police Tips Hotline at (203) 622-3333 or email Tips@greenwichct.org.
