Earlier this week, a simple transaction in New Jersey ended in tragedy for the seller.
On Tuesday, 69-year-old Manchester Township resident Jack Gotfried was killed by a man who came by his house to pick up some furniture Gotfried had listed for free. The man, who was identified as 62-year-old township resident Kevin Noonan, has since been arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death, according to NJ.com.
The bizarre nature of the hit-and-run has investigators speculating that Noonan was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time. His blood was drawn for testing.
Ex-NFL player Phillip Adams' 'mental health degraded fast and terribly bad,' says sister
The sister of a former NFL player suspected of gunning down five people said Phillip Adams' behavior shifted dramatically in recent years.“His mental health degraded fast and terribly bad,’’ Lauren Adams told USA TODAY Sports of Phillip Adams, a cornerback who played in the NFL between 2010 and 2015. “There was unusual behavior. I’m not going to get into all that (symptoms). We definitely did notice signs of mental illness that was extremely concerning, that was not like we had ever seen.
Shortly before 3:45 p.m. on April 13, Noonan, who was driving with a suspended license, stopped by Gotfried's house to pick up the items.
Prosecutors said that the two men were strangers. Their first and, as it turned out, last meeting went downhill fast. Sometime after his arrival, Noonan began backing up "at a high rate of speed," apparently oblivious to the fact that Gotfried was standing behind the vehicle.
This had the effect of "pinning him between the rear of the vehicle and a truck parked in front of the residence," the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office stated in a press release.
Noonan then drove off, abandoning Gotfried. Shortly thereafter, Manchester Township police received a report of an injured pedestrian. Officers who arrived on the scene found Gotfried lying in the road. He was flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune Township, where he was pronounced dead.
Report: Brain of mass shooting suspect, ex-NFL player Phillip Adams to be tested for CTE
The York County coroner said that the brain of former NFL player Phillip Adams, the suspect in the Rock Hill shooting, will be tested for CTE.York County Coroner Sabrina Gast told the Charlotte Observer that she spoke to the Adams family to get consent to have the tests performed. The Observer also reported that the Medical University of South Carolina Charleston will conduct the autopsy and that the York County Coroner’s Office will collaborate with Boston University on the CTE assessment.
While the hospital did not publicize the exact cause of death, Gotfried sustained "traumatic injuries to his lower extremities" in the accident, according to the press release.
Subsequently, the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Vehicular Homicide Unit and Manchester Township Police Department Detective Bureau determined that Noonan was responsible. Detectives apprehended Noonan later that day when they spotted him walking on the side of a road in the neighboring town of Lacey. They took him to the Manchester Township Police Headquarters, where he was booked and consented to a blood draw.
Noonan is currently being held at Ocean County Jail pending a detention hearing, though it is not clear whether he has retained an attorney, according to The Argus-Press. In addition to leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death, he will also be charged with driving with a suspended license.
