    There is certainly more to this story. The car was found, and why was that not reported. It’s at the OF Borough building. They reported nothing was found on Coxton road. An EMT leaked that they found a bag of cleaning supplies associated with the case. Why not keep the public up to speed on this. There is more going on then shared.

      This is what cracks me up about our Keystone cops. They’re always asking for the public’s help but won’t ever help us with any clues. Hell, I was still looking for a car with a Trump/Pence sticker on the front of it. I guess I’m a day late and a dollar short. After all, 90% of all cases are solved by the public, not the cops. Goodluck Keystones, I’m not helping anymore. Figure it out by yourselves!

    They should start fining people on Facebook when they start nonsense rumors and theories. I hope they find him, but society needs to stop with all the crap.

      Agree 100 percent.
      This poor man is someone’s father, husband and son. He is already leaving his abridged time on earth in the most unbefitting way. The daily gossipers are of ill repute.
