Son of Couple Killed in Griswold Fire Named Person of Interest

The son of a couple killed in a Griswold house fire last week has been identified as a person of interest. 

Police said they are seeking the whereabouts of Matthew Lindquist. 

The victims of the fire were identified as Janet Lindquist, 61, and Kenneth Lindquist, 56, who both lived in the home. The cause and manner of their death have not been determined.

Officials were investigating a house fire on Dec. 21 said the fire was connected to a car fire 40 miles away in Glastonbury.

Firefighters responded to 70 Kenwood Estates in Griswold around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday after a neighbor called 911 to report a fire and crews found two bodies in the charred remains of the home.  

Griswold Volunteer Fire Chief Tom Holowaty said three adults lived in the house.

Police said there was a link between the house fire and the abandoned car found in flames at the Glastonbury Luxury Apartments in Glastonbury Wednesday morning. State police said the car’s VIN number was connected to the Griswold home, but did not provide any details of how they were linked.
