The wife of one of the victims said a senior at the University of Connecticut was accused of killing two men and injuring another, looking for a young woman he knew when he committed his murder.
The man’s wife said Peter Manfredonia, a 23-year-old senior at the university, was looking for the girl before crossing the road with her neighbor, 62-year-old Ted Demers.
Cindy Demers told The Associated Press: “He was clearly walking to his house with a job and a backpack in his backpack.
Dimmers said he spoke with the girl’s father over the weekend and the family is considering filing a restraining order against Manfredonia, who went home in the past.
Connecticut State Police pleaded with Montreal to engage in a multi-state manhunt for the fifth day on Tuesday.
Manfredonia is believed to be armed and dangerous, and was last seen in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania on Sunday after two murders and kidnappings.
“Your parents, your friends – we all want a peaceful end here in Connecticut,” Lt. John Aiello said at a news conference.
“Please call 911; Let us know where you are. We want to solve this in a safe way. “
Police believe Manfredonia, who has a history of mental illness, killed Demers and another man in two separate attacks before fleeing the state with stolen guns in a stolen car.
His attacks began Friday, when he killed DeMarcus and severely injured a neighbor who came to Timmer’s aid, state police said.
Later that Friday, Manfredonia stole three shotguns and a handgun from a man’s home in Wilmington.
He was later reported to have appeared 70 miles away in Derby, Connecticut, where he killed a friend, Nicholas Eisel (23). He later forced Isle’s 23-year-old girlfriend into her 2016 Volkswagen Jetta and left the state with her, police said.
A girlfriend was found unharmed in her car Sunday in a rest stop outside Patterson, New Jersey, police said.
Pennsylvania State Police said Tuesday that Manfredonia then took an Uber to Walmart in East Stroudsburg, not far from the New Jersey border.
He was last seen in security camera footage Sunday evening, walking along the railway tracks behind the store with a white shirt and a large duffel bag in dark shorts, officials said.
Connecticut State Police are asking residents to call 911 for any tips and not to approach Manfredonia under any circumstances.
