Friday, 16-year-old Rachel Pawloski, daughter of Gregory Pawloski, Jr., plans to speak out about how the Department of Children and Families and court systems failed her family through the years.
She said DCF was begged to provide services to her family less than 60 days before Gregory Pawloski attacked Janice Lesko.
Police said Gregory Pawloski used a shotgun to kill Lesko and himself in a home on Stage Road last August.
Gregory Pawloski was no stranger to violence, according to the Connecticut Coalition against Domestic Violence.
The group said he had been arrested before for threatening his former partner, Kimberly Fontaine of East Hampton.
Since the murder-suicide, Rachel Pawloski created a nonprofit group called Youth Alliance Against Violence.
She said she will issue a plea to Gov. Dannel Malloy to demonstrate effective leadership and enact her proposals to protect families.
Rachel Pawloski's news conference was set for 11 a.m. in front of the Stage Road home where the incident happened.
