Police ask public for help in fatal shooting probe

Family and friends of Marco Paoletta are still coping with the man?s death as police say they are running out of leads.

Paoletta?s body was found Thursday on Vine Road in Stamford. Police say the man died after being shot in the head at close range. Paoletta?s car was found on fire in Norwalk hours after his death.

Police say they?ve contacted people who knew Paoletta and searched his condominium for clues. Paoletta?s family member say they have no clue who would have targeted the man.

Investigators are requesting the public?s help in finding Paoletta?s killer. Police advise anyone who saw anything unusual around the time of the murder to contact authorities.
