This undated image released by the Waterbury Police Department via the Republican-American newspaper shows an image of Diane McDermott, the mother of actor Dylan McDermott, who was murdered in 1967. Waterbury police reopened the investigation last year into McDermott's death after Dylan McDermott contacted them with questions, the Republican-American newspaper reported Sunday and Monday, June 24-25, 2012, as part of a two-part series. A police investigation concluded that she was killed in 1967 by her now-dead gangster boyfriend John Sponza, who lived with McDermott at the time. He had told authorities that McDermott accidently shot herself after picking up a gun he had been cleaning.
