DERBY — On what would have been missing man William “Billy” Smolinski’s 40th birthday Monday, a man accused of lying to police about the location of his body pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 4½ years in prison.
Chad Hanson, 33, of Seymour pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement concerning injury or death in Superior Court.
Hanson was arrested after he led state police to conduct an unsuccessful 10-day search in Oxford, near Prokop Road and Woodruff Hill Road, for Smolinski’s body in October 2011.
Hanson has also given information to police that led to unsuccessful searches in Seymour in 2008 and in the Naugatuck State Forest in 2010.
