Lauretti: Shooting victim was troubled

The 56-year-old man killed in Milford Wednesday was the first cousin of Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti.

Lauretti confirmed Thursday that Michael Savignano, who was fatally shot on Hollywood Avenue, was the son of his mother’s brother. “We’re a close family,” said Lauretti, who is campaigning for the office of lieutenant governor.

Although he didn’t know of any issues his cousin may have been involved in, Lauretti said Savignano had issues with alcohol in the past but recently appeared to be pulling his life back together.
