The investigation into the death of a prominent socialite in her North Salem manse in Westchester County has spread to nearby Ridgefield, Conn., which has been hit by a string of recent burglaries, according to a report. No arrests have been made in the death of Lois Colley, 83

Esdras Marroquin Gomez pleaded not guilty to several charges, including second-degree murder, and was remanded into custody.

Police said Gomez was identified as a suspect in November 2015, just days after Colley, 83, was found dead in the laundry room of the 300-acre estate she shared with her husband, Eugene Colley, who amassed a fortune by operating more than 100 McDonald’s franchises.

Authorities said a pin from a fire extinguisher was found next to Colley’s body. The extinquisher, which police believe was the murder weapon, was found days later in a pond on the property, inside a plastic bag that bore traces of Colley’s DNA.

Police said Gomez, who is also known as Victor, fled to Guatemala within days of the killing, but was later located in Mexico. He was taken into custody recently by federal agents while traveling through Miami.

Lois Colley and her husband were known for their charitable giving, and she was said to be fond of gardening, tennis and horseback riding.

“My mom was a beautiful, strong and loving mother,” Bruce Colley, of the couple’s four sons, said during his mother’s funeral service shortly after her death. “She was the heart of our family and the glue that kept us all together.”

Gomez is expected to appear again in court on Dec. 7. He could face up to 25 years in prison on the murder charge.
