Following an investigation that began more than four years ago, State Police detectives have identified a suspect in a 2019 homicide in Barton. The alleged victim, 37-year-old Richard Poginy of Glover, was found with serious injuries following a low-speed, minor car crash in Barton on Nov. 2, 2019. He died a week later at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Investigators determined that his significant injuries were not related to the vehicle crash. An autopsy showed the cause of Poginy’s death was “complications of blunt impact head injuries,” and the manner of death was a homicide. State Police detectives with the Major Crime Unit and Bureau of Criminal Investigations identified Brownswell Cedano, 29, allegedly assaulted and repeatedly struck Poginy outside a home in Barton. Cedano currently is an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Minersville, Pennsylvania, after he was sentenced in November 2022 to a seven-year term following a conviction for distributing drugs in Rutland.
