Shelton infant's death being investigated as homicide

Fairfield police say the death of a 4-month-old Shelton boy that occurred earlier this year is now being investigated as a homicide.

Lieutenant Robert Kalamaras said Fairfield Police responded to a call of an unconscious infant at unlicensed day care service back on March 22 of this year.

Kalamaras said when officers arrived on the scene Adam Seagull of Shelton was “cold to the touch.” He was transported to St. Vincent's medical center where he was then pronounced dead.

According to police, the investigation was opened when the Chief medical examiner conducted  a toxicology report and discovered high levels of Benadryl found in Seagull’s system. Police said the baby was healthy prior to the emergency.

Carol Cardillo has been running the unlicensed day care at her home on Edgewood Road for 11 years.

Seagull’s parents, Matthew and Michelle, haven’t made a public comment.

His obituary said his “infectious smile brought immediate joy to everyone who had the privilege of experiencing it.”
Lieutenant Kalamaras said this is an ongoing investigation and no one has been charged with a crime yet.
