Suspect in Homicide at Danbury Condo Arrested

Police have arrested a suspect in a homicide at a condominium complex in Danbury.

Jason James Lowry Hoffman, 33, of Brewster, New York, was killed at the Sterling Woods Condominium Complex on Sept. 4. 

On Wednesday morning, police took 33-year-old David Ramos, a friend of Hoffman’s and resident of the condominium where Hoffman was killed, into custody, according to a Facebook post from Danbury police.

They said a warrant application linking Ramos to Hoffman’s death was approved on Sept. 9.

Ramos eluded police until Wednesday morning when he was found in a friend’s apartment on Scuppo Road in Danbury, according to police.

The court has sealed the information contained in the warrant affidavit. Ramos is being held at the Danbury Police Department and bond was set at $250,000.

Ramos was charged with manslaughter in the first degree, possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to keep prescription drugs in the original container and interfering with the duties of a police officer.

Police said more charges are possible and they are also looking into the possibility of charging others.
