Circumstances

April L Grisanti was last seen leaving Anthony’s Cafe. It was a bar on Main Street in Norwalk, Connecticut. This incident occurred on February 1, 1985. Shortly after midnight she went across the street to use the phone to call for a ride, and never returned. She was accompanied by her boyfriend, James C. “Purple” Aaron Jr.

A witness reported seeing a woman kicking and screaming in James’s blue Cadillac as he drove away. Aaron drove north on Main Street and then turned left on New Canaan Avenue with Grisanti in the vehicle, still struggling. She has never been heard from again. Her car was later found near Ann Street, in the Norwalk River.

Half an hour before her disappearance, Grisanti told the police she was having an argument with James. One of her fingers was bleeding, and she said he’d assaulted her. She refused to have him arrested, however. She left with James in his blue Cadillac at 12:30 a.m. He said she got out of his car at a stoplight three blocks away.

Grisanti’s mother reported her missing later that day. Her wallet with her credit cards, driver’s license, and birth certificate was found abandoned in Norwalk a month later.

James’s estranged wife, Mary Frattalone-Aaron, disappeared from her husband’s Norwalk residence in July 1981 and was found murdered in a wooded area behind a commuter lot on Route 123 a month later. They had been discussing divorce at the time of her disappearance. James was questioned in her disappearance, but no charges were ever filed.

Later in February 1985, James was charged with kidnapping and unlawful restraint in Grisanti’s case. He was convicted and served nearly six years in prison before his release in December 1991.

Grisanti’s mother filed a lawsuit against him for injuries her daughter suffered in the kidnapping; the suit was settled in 1992 for $50,000. Grisanti has never been located, and Aaron died in 2016 at the age of 65. He remains the prime suspect in her presumed murder.
