PENNSBURG, Pa. — The manhunt for a Marine veteran suspected of killing his ex-wife and five of her relatives amid a child custody dispute has spread to two suburban Philadelphia counties.
Some schools were closed Tuesday, hospitals and other public places increased security and residents remained on heightened alert.
That’s even as officials lifted a shelter in place order for parts of Bucks County where a knife-wielding, fatigue-clad man resembling Bradley William Stone attempted a carjacking Monday night.
Monday’s rampage started before dawn at the home of Stone’s former sister-in-law in Souderton and ended about 90 minutes later at ex-wife Nicole Stone’s apartment in nearby Harleysville.
Stone’s former wife, 33-year-old Nicole Stone, was found dead after a neighbor saw Brad Stone fleeing just before 5 a.m. Monday with their two young daughters.
