Mom’s Fitbit Leads Police to Arrest Her Husband for Murder

On the morning December 23, 2015, Richard Dabate sent his kids off to the school bus, waved goodbye to his wife, Connie, and left for work.

Soon afterward, Connie headed for a fitness class at the local YMCA, with a Fitbit on her waistband.

Dabate realized he had forgotten his laptop, and went back to Connecticut home to get it between 8:45 a.m. and 9 a.m.

He heard a noise, he said, and went upstairs to investigate.
