Before the capture in Maryland, authorities had pleaded for Manfredonia to surrender. “Everyone in the investigation has said that this is completely out of character for him,” Brian Foley, an aide Peter Manfredonia , UConn senior wanted in two killings , caught in Maryland after multi-state manhunt.

The physical characteristics matched, and Manfredonia, 23, was apprehended without any use of force, they said. It was a peaceful end to a six-day manhunt that began with him allegedly using a machete to kill 62-year-old Theodore DeMers Friday morning; he also allegedly injured a man who tried to help DeMers.

Since Friday, Manfredonia’s run extended from DeMers’s slaying in Willington, Connecticut, to Derby, Connecticut, where he allegedly killed Nicholas Eisele, 23, said to be a friend of his from high school, and abducted Eisele’s 23-year-old girlfriend by forcing her into her vehicle. From there, he reportedly abandoned the girlfriend and her vehicle at a Paterson, New Jersey, rest stop. And since then, sightings have led law enforcement to Pennsylvania and, finally, Maryland – law enforcement found out he took an Uber from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, to Hagerstown, an update released around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday said.

Peter Manfredonia . —Connecticut State Police. HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The search for a University of Connecticut student police say is armed and on the run after killing two people focused in its fifth day Tuesday on Pennsylvania, where he was reported seen taking an Uber to a Walmart store.

The detective speaking with the U.S. Marshals Service had just mentioned Manfredonia’s height of around 6-foot-3 or 6-foot-4, when that other member of law enforcement spotted him, according to Lt. Michael Pendleton of the Connecticut State Police. The detective then looked and saw the man was wearing red sneakers, a detail Pennsylvania State Police had mentioned after the Wednesday sighting.

“At that point, the sideview profile matched the photos that we had,” Pendleton said.

The law enforcement team approached Manfredonia with their weapons drawn and ordered him to get on the ground, he said.

“At that point, he went on the ground, he did not resist, and absolutely no force was used to affect the arrest,” Pendleton said.

Manfredonia led officials to a black bag about 200 yards away from where he was arrested, and authorities found a weapon inside, according to Pendleton, though he didn’t specify what it was.

There are still many aspects of the case that authorities aren’t publicly releasing, or that they’re still determining. Pendleton couldn’t comment on a potential motive, or where they thought Manfredonia may have been headed next. The lieutenant also couldn’t give details on the charges Manfredonia is facing.

He did say that Manfredonia’s eventual arrest was a culmination of work between local law enforcement agencies and federal authorities, including the FBI and the Marshals Service.

“We talked to the family members of the victims,” Pendleton said. “They were very appreciative of our efforts and bringing him to justice. I think they were relieved that he was finally in custody.”
