CONNECTICUT killer Peter Manfredonia stopped at Sheetz in Pennsylvania to purchase items before his journey to Maryland Wednesday, Your Content has exclusively learned.
Police released images of a man matching Manfredonia’s description at a Sheetz convenience store in Chambersburg, Pa., which is just off I-81 in southern Pennsylvania. A black Hyundai Santa Fe stolen from East Stroudsburg, Pa., near where Manfredonia was last sited about 6 p.m. Sunday, was recovered near the Sheetz store.
“[A] new tip puts Manfredonia in Hagerstown, Maryland,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Petroski said. “The stolen Hyundai Santa Fe WAS recovered in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. If seen, DO NOT APPROACH, HE IS CONSIDERED ARMED & DANGEROUS, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!”
“There must’ve been 5 – maybe six helicopters circling my home,” a Scranton resident told Your Content. “They were there from midnight to well past 6 a.m.”
