Family of Conn. college student wanted in two murders calls on him to surrender

A manhunt continued for a University of Connecticut student who police say is suspected in two murders, and the public is being warned that he should be considered armed and dangerous. Now his family, through a lawyer, is calling on him to surrender to police.

Peter Manfredonia, 23, was last seen Sunday walking along train tracks in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, according to State Police. A photo of the suspect with a description was released Monday afternoon.

“White Male, 23 years old, dark colored shorts, white T-shirt & carrying a large duffel bag. If seen, DO NOT APPROACH, ARMED & DANGEROUS Call 911 Immediately!”

Mike Dolan, a lawyer for Manfredonia’s family, said his clients are hoping he turns himself into the authorities.

“Peter, if you are listening, you are loved,” Dolan said at a news conference on Monday. “It is time to let the healing process begin. It’s time to surrender. You have your parents’ and your sisters’ and your family’s entire support. So, Peter, from your parents, we love you, please turn yourself in.”
