PD: No criminal component surrounding the death of father and son in Branford

BRANFORD -- Police are not saying how two men who were found dead in their apartment may have died, but they admit the investigation took a different path than they thought.

Branford Police Department said when they first discovered 71-year-old David Wells and 36-year-old Jason Wells dead Monday night, there were signs of trauma on both.

Police said there is no danger to the public.

“The public can rest assured that there is no danger to them at this time,” said Det. Lt. Dominick Eula, of the Branford Police Department.

Apartment 2C, a corner apartment, was the focus of the investigation.

“The initial scene indicated some sort of criminal element,” Eula said. “However, an ongoing investigation has ruled that out.”

A long-time resident said a couple and their son shared the apartment for the past year. Police confirmed the two men were father and son.

Police said they are awaiting toxicology reports from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and the results can take about a month.

There were no indications that the two men had a fight, according to police. Eula declined to answer whether the police had been called to the residence before.
