Penney Serra was born in New Haven, Ct in March of 1952. Penney helped her dad raise her younger sister, Rosemary when their mother died when Penney was 11 years old. A young dental assistant, she was once engaged to Philip DeLieto whose family owned a restaurant in downtown New Haven. Penney Serra was killed on July 16th 1973. Penney was murdered at the temple Street Garage in the broad daylight of a New Haven summer afternoon. Police looked at possible suspects, including one time fiancee Phil DeLieto. Phil DeLieto was distantly related to the then police cheif of New Haven and future Mayor, Biago DeLieto. Family, friends and civilians thought that the only person who could have murdered Penney was Phil DeLieto. DeLieto was eliminated as a suspect due to his alibi, working at his family restaurant the afternoon during the time the murder transpired.In the year 1984 police arrested Anthony Golino. Golino was crucified in the press, but had to be released when the blood at the crime scene failed to match that of the accused. Twenty-Five years later, due to a fingerprint match, the police arrested, tried and convicted Edward Grant of Waterbury of the Serra murder. Penney can finally rest. Sadly, Penney's father, John Serra passed away before his daughters murderer was caught. May peace be with him at this time.
