Groton - The doors to the City of Groton Police Department were draped in black bunting after a veteran officer was found dead in his office Monday.
"The officer found dead in the police department at about 8:30 this morning was Lt. Thomas Forbes," police Chief Bruno Giulini said late Monday afternoon in a somber and succinct press conference, accompanied only by Mayor Marian Galbraith and department spokesman Lt. Robert Martin.
Giulini said Forbes' body was taken to the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Farmington, where an autopsy today will determine the manner and cause of death. He offered no further comment.
