Press release

Accused killer in Northeast PA


REGION — PSP Stroudsburg was contacted by New Jersey State Police (NJSP) regarding the possibility of Connecticut homicide suspect Peter James Manfredonia, 23, being in Stroudsburg's patrol area. NJSP 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 driver in front of the East Stroudsburg Walmart. Through interviews with the driver and recovered security camera footage, Troopers were able to determine that Manfredonia walked behind Walmart and other businesses onto a set of train tracks and was still in possession of a duffle bag full of guns he stole from a home invasion in Connecticut. Troopers are actively searching for him along with numerous other Law Enforcement Agencies. 

It is believed that Manfredonia does not have ties to the area and does not have a vehicle. He may attempt to solicit ride sharing services, possibly through third party means, to flee the area.
Manfredonia is a 23-year-old white, non-Hispanic male, approximately 6’4”, 240 pounds, short hair.
Last known clothing description:  Dark colored shorts, white t-shirt, carrying a black duffel bag.
