The 23-year-old was dropped off by an Uber in front of the Walmart in East Stroudsburg on Sunday, then he walked behind the Walmart and other businesses onto a set of train tracks, police said.
Authorities interviewed the driver and recovered security camera footage, which showed Manfredonia walking on the tracks with a duffel bag full of stolen guns, police said.
Manfredonia, a senior at the University of Connecticut, is accused of assaulting two men, killing one, in Willington, Connecticut on Friday morning.
Police say he then committed a home invasion and held someone captive, then fled with stolen pistols, guns and a vehicle, which he used to drive to Derby, Connecticut.
In Derby, he went to an acquaintance's house and allegedly killed the 23-year-old man, before forcing the man's girlfriend into her car and fleeing the state with her. The woman, 23, was located Sunday with her vehicle at a rest stop in New Jersey, near the Pennsylvania border. She was not hurt, police say.
That's when investigators believe Manfredonia took the Uber to East Stroudsburg.
Manfredonia is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. Anyone who has information on his whereabouts or may have been approached or contacted by him should call Pa. Crimestoppers at 1-800-472-8477.
