PENNSBURG, Pa. (AP) – A prosecutor has confirmed that a body found in woods in suburban Philadelphia is that of an ex-Marine suspected of killing his ex-wife and five of her relatives.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman posted on her official Facebook page that police found 35-year-old Bradley William Stone’s body Tuesday near his Pennsburg home.
He appears to have died from self-inflicted cutting wounds in the center of his body, Vetri Ferman said.
The discovery came amid an intense manhunt a day after prosecutors say the Iraq war veteran went on a 90-minute rampage before daybreak Monday at three homes a few miles apart.
Schools closed and hospitals and other public places tightened security as SWAT teams and local, state and federal law enforcement swarmed.
It was the second major manhunt to transfix Pennsylvania in recent months. Eric Frein spent 48 days at large in the Poconos after the September ambush slaying of a state trooper.
