Former Trumbull man's arrest connected to untimely death investigation

Thomas Fischer, 48, formerly of Trumbull, was arrested Sept. 8 for allegedly violating a protective order that required him to have no contact with 41 year-old Jennifer Sredzinski of Monroe.

Sredzinski was found lying in the road Aug. 25 in a condominium complex, bleeding and with a head injury. She died from her injuries on Aug. 28 and her death has been ruled suspicious by police.

The Monroe Courier reports police discovered the protective order violation while investigating the untimely death.

Fischer was located in Milford and taken into custody without incident, according to police. He was transported back to the Monroe Police Department and processed at 2 p.m. The no-contact protective order stemmed from a 2014 domestic violence arrest in Virginia.

On Aug. 25, police received a 911 call regarding an unconscious female lying in the roadway on Windgate Circle, located in the Hills of Monroe Condominium complex.  The complex is comprised of approximately 25 two story buildings, each containing six apartment-style condominium units.

The Monroe Police Department’s investigation into the untimely death of Sredzinski continues. All leads and information are being pursued.

Fischer is being held on a $100,000 bond and is due in court Sept. 9.

Anyone having any information that may assist in the investigation on the death of Jennifer Sredzinski should contact the Monroe Police Department Detective Division at 203-261-3622.
