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.”

It’s so f’n hard for families to find the right kind of mental health treatment for their kids before they turn 18. After the kid turns 18, he or she can refuse any treatment, thanks to f’n HIPAA. So you get results such as this.
There’s a lot to unpack beyond that.
First off, mental health crises are exploding on college campus, and it has nothing to do with HIPAA. It has to do with the prevalence of unpreparedness. High school “students” are taught to chase vapid memories while negotiating their grades and doing just enough (and mom and dad step in to help with their complacency). It’s not just grades though…it’s life coping skills and how to adult. If there’s not an app for it, most YAs don’t care or bother, at least not to the extent that they should.
Second, this kid has some complicated family stuff. His dad got busted for some charges in January related to trying to get a minor drunk and have sex with them.
Third, COVID 19 has made mental health services near non-existent. They aren’t “essential” health care right now.
They’re going to find the kid somewhere with a hole in his head and that’ll be that.
They caught him…ah well, gotta lose one once in awhile.
