PA State Police Troop N - Stroudsburg was contacted by New Jersey State Police regarding the possibility of Connecticut homicide suspect Peter James MANFREDONIA, W/N/M, 23 YOA, being in Stroudsburg patrol area.
New Jersey State police had made contact with MANFREDONIA’s escaped kidnap victim near the Pennsylvania border and recovered the stolen vehicle he used to flee his last homicide scene.
Troopers were able to determine that MANFREDONIA was dropped off by an Uber in front of the East Stroudsburg Walmart.
