Weaving Died of Blunt Force Trauma

The body found in a shallow grave in Southbury is Michael Weaving, 24, of Southbury, state police said on Tuesday.

On March 30, state police confirmed his identity and said he died of blunt force trauma.

Weaving went missing on March 18, the Waterbury Republican-American reports.

One man has been arrested in connection with his death. Another suspect killed himself after being questioned, police said.

David Eisenbach and Thomas Curley set fire to Weaving’s blanket while camping and repeatedly poked him with hot coal sticks before his remains were found in Southbury last week, police say in an arrest warrant.

Eisenbach, 23, of Southbury, was arraigned on Monday in Waterbury Superior Court on charges including aiding and abetting murder and first-degree assault in Weaving’s death. He is being held in lieu of $2.5 million bail.

Curley killed himself at his Naugatuck home last week after police questioned him about Weaving's disappearance, police said. Curley was 23.

The warrant says Eisenbach says he wasn't at the campsite when Weaving died and he blames Curley.
