ROCKY HILL, Conn. — Rocky Hill Police and Connecticut State Police are investigating a homicide that took place on Pondside Lane late Monday.

State Police announced the arrests of two people in connection to the incident.

Detectives were on the scene all of Monday morning into Tuesday afternoon. Neighbors told FOX61 they had their suspicions about the home.

"To have the presence of the police here a lot and at all hours of the night, sometimes during the day, it is a little unnerving," said Rosemary Towle of Rocky Hill.

Towle has lived on Pondside Lane for several years and just recently, she and other neighbors noticed a lot of police activity at the home in addition to suspicious people lingering in the driveway.

State Police said Robert Iacobucci, 76, of Rocky Hill was found dead Monday evening when officers conducted a welfare check shortly before 7:30 p.m.

Towle added she used to greet Iacobucci back in the days before his personality apparently changed where he went from sociable to isolating himself from all the neighbors.

"Friendly, waved when you go by, we used to have social gatherings down in the cul-de-sac," added Towle.

Towle said Iacobucci formerly worked at Sikorski Aircraft and owned his own power washing company.

Another neighbor said he saw a woman enter Iacobucci's backdoor Sunday.

A neighbor's family member who did not want to be identified told FOX61 a loud car was heard speeding away Monday morning.

"There would just be people who seemed out of place and kind of just sit outside and like I was saying, I assumed some kind of nefarious stuff," said a neighbor's family member.

State Police said Iacobucci's car was missing from his driveway and was later found in New Britain on Monday.

On Tuesday, troopers arrested two people connected to Iacobucci's death.

Franklyn Cruz, 42, and Madeline Dickey, 36, both of New Britain, have been charged with robbery and murder.

Court records showed both suspects had extensive criminal records, ranging from threatening in the second degree to risk of injury to child and identity theft.

"Surprised certainly but once you think about all the things that have happened, it’s not the most shocking thing in the world," added a neighbor's family member.

State Police said they do expect more arrests to be made and the suspects are likely to be arraigned Wednesday morning.

2 arrested in death of 75-year-old man in Connecticut home

ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) — A man and woman have been arrested in the killing of a 75-year-old man who was found tied up inside his Connecticut home, police said.

Franklyn Cruz, 42, and Madeline Dickey, 35, both of New Britain, have been charged with murder and robbery in the death of Robert Iacobucci, state police said Tuesday. Each was in custody on $1 million bail.

Officers found Iacobucci’s body in his home in Rocky Hill on Monday, state police said. The house had been burglarized, and Iacobucci had been assaulted and bound.

Investigators tracked the suspects through Iacobucci’s car, which was missing from his home, state police said. It was found in New Britain, where police detained Cruz and Dickey.
