The hunt for a gunman accused of killing two people is now focused in Maryland, after the suspect was recently discovered in Pennsylvania Sheetz, state police said.
Peter Manfredonia, a 23-year-old double murder suspect from Connecticut, was seen in a shop in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, police said in a release late Wednesday.
Eyewitness description and surveillance footage, showing a man wearing sunglasses and a cloth mask on his face, matches Manfredonia, state police said. The man in the video is called Uber and was taken to Hagerstown, Maryland, police said.
The Hyundai Sante Fe, which was stolen Monday night from the Stroudsburg area, was found near Sheetz.
Manfredonia has been on the run since police said he killed Ted DeMers, 62, from Willington, Connecticut, and Manfredonia’s high school friend, Nicholas Eisele, 23.
He was accused of then forcing Eisele’s boyfriend into his car and escaping to New Jersey. The boyfriend was found unscathed Sunday at a stop along Interstate 80 in Knowlton Township, with his 2016 Volkswagen Jetta, police said.
Police said Manfredonia then traveled by Uber to East Stroudsburg, where he was dropped off in front of Walmart at 355 Lincoln Ave. in the region.
Manfredonia had a large backpack full of weapons, stolen during the home invasion of Connecticut, police said. He was seen with the same bag in a Chambersburg store, state police said.
He is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 240 pounds, and is considered to be armed and dangerous. If seen, the witness must call 911.
If Manfredonia has contacted or approached you, contact Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 800-472-8477, police said.
