UPDATE: House painter finds bodies of murdered young married couple in quiet neighborhood; Person of interest found dead, police say

UPDATE 8:10 p.m.:

Police told WTXFWednesday eveningthat Daniel Kenneth Mooney, the sole suspect in the murders of a Pennsylvania couple, has been found dead of an apparent overdose. There is no additional information available at this time.


A Pennsylvania man is on the run after the bodies of his married neighbors were reportedly found in their home Tuesday, police said.

According to PennLive, police have identified Daniel Kenneth Mooney, 26, as a person of interest in the double slaying of Tyler Roy, 28, and his wife Christina, 27. A house painter reportedly discovered the young couple’s bodies in the upper floor of their Churchville home Tuesday morning.

Northampton Police Chief Michael Clark told reporters that there was no sign of forced entry into the home. Mooney had previously lived in the same neighborhood as the Roys but had no other link to them other than that, according to Bucks County First Assistant District Attorney Gregg Shore.

Their deaths are pending as an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday morning, Philly.com reported. While a motive remains unclear, the outlet wrote that the victims’ Ford Edge SUV, which was missing when their bodies were discovered, was found in Northeast Philadelphia early Wednesday.

WTXF reported that an arrest warrant was issued for Mooney’s alleged theft of a car on the evening of April 30. While several reports stated that the warrant is “unrelated” to the Roys’ murder, authorities have accused Mooney of stealing their SUV, according to the news station.

Mooney, who is said to walk with a pronounced limp, is considered dangerous and shouldn’t be approached. He was believed to have been located in the vicinity of where the car was found.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call 215-322-6114.
