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.

Allentown police said they are still working to confirm whether the tip is accurate.

» First Connecticut Murder

It all unfolded on the morning of May 22 where police say one man was killed and another was seriously wounded.

According to police, the men were attacked by a sharp object, possibly a knife or machete.

Police said in a statement, Manfredonia “was seen leaving the scene of a homicide and serious assault” on Mirtl Road in Willington at approximately 9 a.m. that morning.

The victim was later identified as Ted DeMers, 62.

Family Begs Killer Peter Manfredonia: 'It's Time to Let the Healing Process Begin. Turn Yourself In'
Ted DeMers, pictured with his wife, was killed in Willington, Connecticut.

DeMers was a woodworker who was at his barn when he was attacked and killed, according to his family.

DeMers’ wife, Cynthia, told the Hartford Courant her husband and the other man offered to help Manfredonia when they saw him walking on the road.

He claimed he needed a ride back to where he had parked his motorcycle, she told the newspaper.

“It could have been anybody who offered him a ride. It could have been any of my neighbors’ husbands. It just happened to be mine.”

She said five minutes after her husband drove away with Manfredonia on a four-wheeler, a passerby drove up to the house and told her there had been an awful accident, according to the Courant.

State police spokesman Trooper Josue Dorelus told reporters the attack was “brutal,” noting officers gave the two CPR upon arrival. Both victims were taken to the hospital, where DeMers died, according to police.

» Second Connecticut Murder

Following the gruesome 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.”

» Ties to Sandy Hook

Manfredonia lived on the same road as Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza. In fact, the homes are just an eight minute distance on foot with approximately 3 homes in between.

“This man attended school with Adam Lanza,” the source continued. “He is very capable of killing again.”

Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, before shooting himself.

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.”

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.

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.

» Chilling Coincidence?

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
