Fox confirmed the death appeared to be a homicide.

“We feel comfortable calling it a homicide investigation,” he said. “I am not in a position to go into specifics because that has the potential to affect the integrity of the investigation.”

He said his department is looking into a number of leads.

Channel 3 cameras were rolling when Suffield police arrested a man on the Windsor Locks Canal Trail, just across the river from the Enfield green. However, it is not clear if the arrest is related to the homicide.

Investigators have not yet released anything about the arrest.

Rubino said the city green is a popular spot for his family.

“My husband and my son walk by here every day and he was right there, so it’s very disturbing,” Rubino said.
