CONNECTICUT killer Peter Manfredonia was an outspoken anti-gun activist who pushed to have guns banned prior to his deadly rampage that left at-least two people dead, Your Content has exclusively learned.
“Don’t expect to see any major media coverage of the Connecticut killer now on the loose, likely now in Pennsylvania,” revealed a Newtown High School graduate.
Manfredonia was a student at Newtown High School in 2012 when 20 students and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in his hometown.
“Turns out the killer, Peter Manfredonia is an outspoken ANTI-GUN activist. Go figure.”
Since then, Manfredonia has been active in raising money and awareness for anti-gun-violence groups, his social media pages show.
In 2019, Manfredonia posted a Facebook fundraiser saying he was participating in the 34th Annual Dave Parcells Madison Triathlon, “to raise awareness for multiple contemporary social/environmental issues. It will also serve as preparation for my iron man next year that will continue the same tradition, except just like an iron man is to a triathlon… it will be bigger and better. Making progress will be a reoccurring theme in my astute little manifesto that ensues, so make sure you please pay attention.”
Manfredonia continued his anti-gun rant, noting the media must focus on organizations working ‘to bring about progress.’
On August 4, 2019, Manfredonia wrote about mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, in a Facebook post:
Also in August 2019, he wrote about violence in America in another Facebook post:
We broke the story … the FBI has deployed field agents from several states to scour Pennsylvania in hope of finding Connecticut killer Peter Manfredonia.
“Manfredonia crossed multiple state lines and is suspected of killing at least two people,” a source close to the investigation previously told Your Content.
After the attacks on Mirtl Road in Willington, Manfredonia broke into a home on Turnpike Road in Willington Saturday night while at least one person was home, police said.
According to police, Manfredonia is believed to have stolen shotguns and a pistol from the house during the home invasion. He also stole a truck.
“The homeowner was held against his will. The suspect that we know from Willington took supplies to include food and the victim’s truck,” Trooper First Class Christine Jeltema, the state police public information officer, said at a Sunday press conference. “We also learned that firearms were taken from the home. The victim on Turnpike Road was not injured and he refused treatment at the scene. The suspect then took the victim’s truck, drove it down to Derby where it was located near Osbornedale State Park.”

“This man attended school with Adam Lanza,” the source continued. “He is very capable of killing again.”
Neighbors in Newtown, Connecticut previously told Your Content Manfredonia ‘idolized’ Lanza.
“He idolized Adam Lanza and was likely schizophrenic. Victim bled to death after being cut up. One sick dude. If school was in session it might have really been tragic.”

What’s more, a man by the name of Christopher Manfredonia was questioned by police in the midst of the Sandy Hook shooting, according to news reports.
However, Newtown residents tell Your Content the two are not related, despite rumors circulating on the internet.
Newtown Police were unable to confirm or deny any relation when reached by Your Content.
According to news reports dating back to 2013, two “men were reported to be escaping from the school at around the same time that Adam Lanza is opening fire inside the school. Are these mysterious men undisclosed accomplices to Lanza?”
The news even reported that it was believed that 2 shooters were involved.
Then quickly the narrative changed, the shooting was blamed on Adam Lanza and we were told that the troubled young man unleashed his rampage with no assistance and the footage was scrubbed from the air.
One man of interest was Chris Manfredonia, the father of a Sandy Hook student.
It has been reported that he attempted to sneak into the school after the shooting started.
Authenticated police radio traffic during the Newtown school shooting shows that emergency responders initially thought there might be two gunmen on the loose, and they can be heard saying his name over their radios.
Manfredonia said that he was heading to the school that morning to help make gingerbread houses with the first-graders, including his six year old daughter. When he arrived he smelled sulfur and heard popping sounds.
He ran around the school to look for his daughter and understandably, was handcuffed by police.
He later found his daughter locked in a room with a teacher.
According to Business Insider, the two men located in the woods were held at gunpoint by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection
