Black Rock Death Ruled A Homicide

From public safety spokesman Kevin Coughlin:

Today the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Connecticut ruled the death of Wayne Bentley on August 1, 2015 as a homicide. The autopsy determined the cause of death as drowning with blunt force trauma of the head and neck ruling the incident as a homicide. Bentley, 42, of West Haven, was found in the water of Ash Creek behind the Chubby’s Bar & Grill at 3488 Fairfield Ave. on the Bridgeport/Fairfield line.

On August 1, 2015 at 1:15 a.m., a call was made to the Bridgeport Police Department regarding a fight that had taken place in the rear of Chubby’s Bar & Grill.

Bridgeport Police, Fire, and AMR–as well as the Fairfield Police–arrived on scene.

Apparently the two individuals involved had fallen into the water behind the restaurant as a result of their fight.

The Bridgeport Fire Department recovered one individual–a male whose identity is not being released yet–from the water.

The other individual involved in the fight fled the scene and is still outstanding.

No weapons were involved with this incident.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact the Bridgeport Detective Bureau at (203) 581-5201.



  1. “No weapons were involved with this incident.”
    I’m sure liberals will find some way to blame it on guns.
    By the way, did they also find Finch’s campaign at the bottom of the creek?
