NEWTOWN - A Hartford man serving a 30-month prison sentence for burglarizing U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd's Hartford office died Thursday at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington.

Gilbert Soto, 50, had been taken to the UConn Health Center after being found suffering from a head injury in the shower area of the medical wing of the Garner Correctional Center in Newtown. Police initially said his death was suspicious, but a preliminary investigation by state police detectives has determined that may not be the case.

Is it a crime to burglarize the office of a real crook (Dodd)?

As far as I’m concerned, he should have taken all that was worthwhile and burned the rest.

When is Chris Dodd going to serve his own prison term for burglarizing from American tax payer for years?

Before that, Soto served 15 years in prison for strangling a homeless man under the Columbus Boulevard overpass over the Conlon-Whitehead Highway in Hartford in 1994.

The guy had already served 15 years in the joint for murder, so I'm sure he knew the law of the jungle there.

The article is clear this was a career criminal, selling office equipment to buy drugs. He'd previously killed a homeless guy.

Don't let Dodd’s character drive you to unsubstantiated conclusions.

How hard would it be to get a career criminal to rob a senators office?

After the Dems realized this guy could never be rehabilitated (i.e. turned into a Dem voter when he’s released), they determined that his time was up. As a dead person, he will vote Democrat every time.

Uh, initially said suspicious, but preliminary investigations says may not be case???????
There must be an easier way to do oneself in than bashing ones own head on the shower wall?

Like the old ‘story’ of a body found in the bottom of a lake wrapped in chains....”Seems like old Luke stole more chain than he could swim with” commented the Sheriff...

Senator Tom Dodd authored The Gun Control Act of 1968, modeled after the Nazi Weapons Law. Censured b/c of misuse of campaign funds ...stealing actually....he lost his reelection.

As the apple never falls far from the tree, Chris Dodd continues his father’s legacy: the Irish cottage, preferential CountryWide loans, millions into his war chest for campaigns from failing financial institutions [AIG], moving his family to Iowa to secure the DNC nod for president, responsible for the AIG loophole ........and so it goes. Pinning the “tail on this donkey”, with all the lies and evil he has perpetuated, it will be a pleasure to see him thrown out on his lying @ss.

Yeah - 15 years is nuts. I guess I don’t feel too bad for him slipping in the shower like that.
