CONNECTICUT killer Peter Mamfredonia left a chilling message on the wall of his apartment comparing his situation to the one of crazed Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza, Your Content has exclusively learned.
The chilling comparison surfaced in an exclusive video obtained by Your Content allegedly depicting the twisted 23-year-old’s apartment.
Your Content previously reported that the room was his dormitory at the University of Connecticut, but we learned that was incorrect. The photo is an apartment Manfreonia resided in that is not associated with the university.
‘We saw what happened when Adam snapped,’ reads the writing on the killer’s wall.
‘Now they see what happens when I snap.’
What’s more, the psychotic 23-year-old grew up nearby Lanza — being dubbed ‘neighbors’ by Newtown locals.
‘Jeez he was one of my uncles high school students, and the kid grew up neighbors with Adam Lanza,’ said Brian Matthews.
“He had all the mental health help he needed in Newtown after Sandy Hook, how does this still happen? What is the answer?”
“I pray this ends soon but it is already a tragedy on so many levels.”
Manfredonia is on the run from police in 3 states. He was last seen in Pennsylvania.
According to sources close to the investigation, several students claim to have previously reported him for threats and mental issues to both campus and state police.
Manfredonia is a 2015 graduate of Newtown High School and a senior at the University of Connecticut majoring in finance and mechanical engineering, the Connecticut Post reported. Police describe him as a 6-foot-3 white man who should be considered armed and dangerous.
The search extended into New Jersey and Pennsylvania over the weekend after a vehicle connected to 23-year-old Peter Manfredonia was found near the border.
Police said Manfredonia is believed to be armed with pistols and long-guns.
Sunday afternoon, 69 News received a tip that the suspect got into an Uber vehicle in the Stroudsburg area and asked to be taken to Allentown, but he reportedly got out of the car and ran off.
Allentown police said they are still working to confirm whether the tip is accurate.

After further investigation, a UCONN spokesperson confirmed that the residence is not on campus nor campus housing. The residence is an apartment inhabited by Manfredonia, a source close to the investigation previously told Your Content.
