GUILFORD — Investigators on Monday are working to establish a timeline in the killing of 42-year-old Lindsey Hopkins, found dead in the Quonnipaug Hills condo complex last week.

Police Chief Butch Hyatt said police are working to pinpoint how much time had passed between Hopkins being killed and her body being found.

“(We) do know that the caller that requested the welfare check had not been able to reach the victim for a couple of days,” Hyatt said Monday.

He said there was no additional new information to share in the case.

Police responded to Hopkins’ Mohawk Trail address for a welfare check Thursday around 10:30 a.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The state’s chief medical examiner ruled Hopkins’ death was ruled a homicide by blunt force trauma.

Last week, Hyatt said police “don’t have any reason to believe” that there is any threat to the public or those living in the complex.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Guilford police at 203-453-8061.
