HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Detectives from the Hartford Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit positively identified the culprit of a December stabbing, and have asked for the public’s help in locating him.

Just after noon on December 9, 2015, Hartford officers were dispatched to Albany Avenue and Baltimore Street following a 911 report of a person possibly shot. Shortly after, Joseph Lindsey arrived by private vehicle at the St. Francis Hospital ED, suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced deceased at 12:33 p.m. A crime scene was established, and the Hartford Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit as well as Crime Scene detectives assumed control of the investigation.

The testimony of several witnesses identified on scene, as well as crucial physical evidence, assisted them in positively identifying the accused. On Friday, an arrest warrant was submitted and approved, charging Brock Davis, 41, with murder. There is a $1 million cash bond.

The search for Davis is underway. His whereabouts are currently unknown, but Deputy Chief and Public Information Officer Foley assure the public, “we will continue to search for him until he is located and brought to justice.” Anyone with any information as to his location are asked to contact Sargeant Reggie Early at (860) 757-4248. Anonymous tips can also be left at the Hartford Police Department website.
