Missing Person Connecticut Billy Smolinski

William “Billy” Smolinski Jr was last seen on August 24, 2004 at his residence on Holly St in Waterbury, CT.  In the first week of May 2014 an Animal Control Officer in Newington and Wethersfield, Debbie Monde and her cadaver K-9 Murphy searched a valley area on a tip received through an inmate that Billy was buried in his car. Murphy hit on the area along with another cadaver dog that was searching for his remains. Of the areas suggested to be searched, one area was not barred from access.

Amid the frustration and confusion Billy’s ex girlfriend had won a defamation law suit against the mother and sister of Billy that was over turned by the Supreme Court. The suit started when the ex girlfriend felt tormented by the search.  The former girlfriend of William Smolinski Jr. sued Smolinski’s mother and sister in 2006 alleging they harassed her, defamed her and falsely accused her of involvement in Smolinski’s disappearance.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
