SIMSBURY, Conn. — Investigators from the state’s Cold Case Unit have joined the investigation into the fatal stabbing of a 54-year-old woman in Simsbury nearly three years ago.

Melissa Millan’s body was found Nov. 20, 2014 along a popular running trail. Her killing remains unsolved.

Simsbury Police Chief Peter Ingvertsen said Thursday that the Chief State’s Attorney’s Cold Case Unit will bring additional expertise and resources to the investigation. Ingvertsen says the probe remains a top priority for his department.

Millan was a senior vice president at Mass Mutual.

A $40,000 reward has been posted for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
