A FATHER has been arrested after his 11-month-old daughter’s horrific injuries were revealed.
Christopher Francisquini was arrested on Friday afternoon after spending two weeks on the run following the brutal death of his young daughter.
According to police in Naugatuck, Connecticut, a concerned citizen made an anonymous tip that led to Francisquini’s arrest.
The citizen told police they recognized the suspect after police shared photos on social media.
Francisquini was arrested in Waterbury before being taken to the Naugatuck Police Department.
Newly released body camera footage from Waterbury Police showed Francisquini wearing a black ski mask, sweatshirt, sweatpants and gloves during his arrest.
Francisquini had been on the run after allegedly killing his baby daughter Camilla at his home on November 18.
An arrest warrant was issued for him, charging him with the murder of Camilla and causing harm to a child.
Naugatuck Police Chief Colin McAllister said Francisquini posed no threat to the community following his arrest.
McAllister added that more arrests could be made if investigators discover that Francisquini received help from others while trying to escape.
Camilla’s death was ruled by coroners as manslaughter caused by neck compressions and stab wounds, McAllister said.
Officers found the toddler’s body “in a state of dismemberment,” he added.
Pink bracelets with the words “Justice for Camilla” and her birthday, December 3, were worn by officers across the state as the Naugatuck Police Department urged the community to support her family and celebrate her first birthday.
The police promised to wear the bracelets until Francisquini was captured.
Francisquini has an extensive criminal history, McAllister said, dating back over a decade.
He was allegedly arrested for multiple crimes, including assault, criminal possession of a firearm, auto theft, robbery, theft and meddling.
According to police, he had bonds totaling $375,000 for five pending cases, including the alleged assault on a police officer.
Francisquini is currently being held on a $5 million bond.
