Possible new clue emerges in 2005 Norwalk murder

The father of a man found dead near East Norwalk train tracks in 2005 speaks about his son?s mysterious death after a new development in the case.

Witnesses said Brandon Rizzi was at Mermaid's Gentleman's Club until early in the morning of December 1, 2005.

Police say his bloody naked body was found the next afternoon. Investigators say the medical examiner ruled the death an accident and the case was closed.

More than a year and a half later, investigators say Rizzi?s wallet was found more than 10 miles away from where his body was discovered. Investigator Vito Colucci said the wallet points to foul play and wants the case re-opened. Rizzi?s father is also calling for justice.
