A jury in 2004 found Heather Specyalski not guilty of manslaughter in the death of her boyfriend, an influential Connecticut businessman, in a 1999 car crash. On Friday, Specyalski was again facing charges, this time in connection with the Aug. 24 death by overdose of her 15-year-old son.

Specyalski, 38, of Spring Hill Road in Storrs, turned herself in at the Tolland state police barracks early Friday, police said. She was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Police began investigating the circumstances of Brandon Specyalski's death after an autopsy found alcohol and drugs in his system, said state police Lt. J. Paul Vance. The boy's death was ruled an overdose, police said.

Specyalski's bail was set at $75,000, and she was transported to Superior Court in Danielson for her arraignment. There, she was released on a promise to return to court Jan. 16, said prosecutor Patricia Froehlich. Froehlich said she couldn't talk about the facts of the case.

"It would be inappropriate and unfair to comment on the evidence underlying the charges," she said.

Terry Donovan, Specyalski's lawyer, said the state seems to be charging Specyalski with failing to lock up the medications she takes as a result of the car accident, not keeping alcohol out of her house, not locking up her car keys and not taking her son to the hospital after it appeared he had ingested alcohol.

Donovan said Specyalski was devastated by her son's death.

"He was her only child and she loved him desperately, like most of us do," Donovan said.

Vance said the boy was in Specyalski's care when he ingested the drugs and alcohol.

In 2004, a jury acquitted Specyalski, a former model, of second-degree manslaughter in the death of Neil Esposito, a businessman who lived in Rocky Hill.

State police initially concluded that Esposito was driving at up to 120 mph when his leased Mercedes — also occupied by Specyalski — crashed on Route 9 in Cromwell in 1999, leaving Esposito dead and Specyalski badly injured. But the state police reopened the case in 2000 at which time investigators identified Specyalski as the driver and arrested her.

Excerpt:

Connecticut State Police Colonel Lynch was allegedly asked to change an official police report. The heirs of Neil Esposito, wanted the millions of Neil's money. Esposito and been died driving drunk and Heather Specyalski was allegedly performing oral sex on him at the time of the crash. I assume there was evidence of this as Heather was in coma for months following the accident. [story]

So, if an important doner to former Republican Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland requests an official State Police investigation be changed, orders from the top will see that it will. These "law enforcement" can't be trusted when they come up with DNA and other lab results when they can just alter official reports. They're willing to put an innocent woman in prison for manslaughter at the request of the rich and powerful.

Woman Acquitted In Ex-boyfriend's Death Faces Charges In Son's Death

The woman initially blamed for -- and then acquitted in -- the death of her ex-boyfriend in a high-profile car crash was charged today with risk of injury to a minor in the August death of her 15-year-old son.

Heather Specyalski, 38, of Spring Hill Road in Storrs turned herself in at the Tolland barracks at 7 a.m., state police said. She was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor, they said.

An autopsy of her son, Brandon Specyalski, turned up evidence that he had drugs and alcohol in his blood, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman. Asked if her son was in her care when he ingested the substances, Vance said, "Absolutely."

Specyalski's bail was set at $75,000, and she was transported to Superior Court in Danielson for her arraignment. There, she was released on a promise to return to court Jan. 16, said prosecutor Patricia Froehlich. Froehlich said she couldn't talk about the facts of the case.

"It would be inappropriate and unfair to comment on the evidence underlying the charges," she said.

During the arraignment, another prosecutor, Bonnie Bentley, asked the judge to impose conditions that Specyalski have no unsupervised contact with anyone under 18 and seek substance abuse evaluation and treatment, Froehlich said, but the requests were denied.

Specyalski's lawyer, Terry Donovan, could not be reached for comment.

In 2004, a jury acquitted Specyalski, a former model, of second-degree manslaughter in the death of her former boyfriend, Neil Esposito, an influential Rocky Hill businessman.

State police initially concluded that Esposito was driving at up to 120 mph when his leased Mercedes-- also occupied by Specyalski -- crashed on Route 9 in Cromwell in 1999. But the state police reopened the case in 2000, identifying Specyalski as the driver and arrested her.
