AUTHORITIES are continuing to search for a man wanted in connection to a deadly attack in Willington earlier this week and now state police said they believe he is responsible for another death in Derby — and Your Content has exclusively obtained footage 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.
The video and photos show an apartment once inhabited by Connecticut killer Peter Manfredonia.
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.
Armed and dangerous: Police in 3 states seek college student suspected in 2 slayings in Connecticut, car last located in PA NJ border homicide suspect Peter Manfredonia, who is suspected of killing 2 people and wounding another.
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.
Your Content previously reported the deranged 23-year-old killed an elderly man and an acquaintance before fleeing towards Pennsylvania.
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.
