Police thought a man found lying in the road had died from the strain of shoveling heavy snow - now they believe the victim may have been killed.

On Monday, Dec. 28, Wethersfield Police said that after looking at the Medical Examiner’s report, their theory of what happened to a male victim during the Dec. 17 snowstorm changed.

On Thursday, Dec. 17, police responded to a report of a person lying unconscious in the snow at 200 Longvue Dr. in Wethersfield.

At that time police believed the victim - Paul Bonfiglio, 57 - had collapsed while shoveling. Bonfiglio was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased, police said.

Details from the Medical Examiner’s report, however, show Bonfiglio suffered injuries consistent with being struck by a motor vehicle, police said.

Wethersfield Police and the Mid-State Accident Investigation Team are asking witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to contact law enforcement at (860) 721-2870.
