State police honor Easton PD for work in Navin homicide case

Posted: Updated:

Easton's Police Department received a special award for its investigative work in the Navin double-homicide of 2015.

Connecticut State Police shined a spotlight on those who played a key role in the case during an award ceremony Wednesday.

Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin were reported missing back in August 2015. Their disappearance soon made national headlines. Their bodies were discovered stuffed into garbage bags months later. Police determined that their son, Kyle Navin, was the culprit of the brutal crime. He was sentenced in 2018 to 55 years in prison for his parents' murder.

Easton Police Chief Timothy Shaw accepted the Unit Citation Award for the Easton Police Department.
