Police Search for Tips in 30-Year-Old Murder of Norwalk Girl

Police have been investigating the murder and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl in Norwalk for nearly 30 years and they are hoping that advancements in DNA technology will help identify the person who killed Kathleen Flynn. 

When Kathleen failed to make it home by 3:15 p.m. on Sept. 23, 1986, her mother reported her missing drove to the school and checked the surrounding neighborhoods, but Kathleen was nowhere to be found. 

Her normal walk home from school included the path that leads to Hunters Lane, and then to Fillow Street and some of Kathleen’s friends said they say he walking toward the beginning of the path by the tennis courts a few minutes after school ended, according to police.

Flynn’s family contacted police at 5:12 p.m. and an extensive search began. 

Kathleen’s body was eventually found in a secluded wooded area over 100 feet from the path. 

Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to contact Lt. Art Weisgerber at (203) 854-3028 or aweisgerber@norwalkct.org.
