UPDATED 7:40AM: WCAU reports the following: “A Pennsylvania man suspected of killing his wife at their home outside Philadelphia and fleeing with his two young sons — causing police to issue an Amber Alert — drove to a Staten Island CVS where a relative works and allegedly robbed the pharmacy at gunpoint before leaving the children at the store and driving off, according to investigators.” They also report that the boys appear to be unharmed.”
Police in Pennsylvania issued an Amber Alert at about 4:30am today and have launched a multi-state manhunt for a Delaware County man and two boys after officers found the man’s wife dead in their home.
Investigators believe Keith Belajonas killed his wife before fleeing with their two boys.
Neighbors called police after hearing a loud argument in the couple’s home between 2am and 3am this morning. The neighbors then heard a gun shot and say they saw Belajonas dragging his two sons, Christopher and Robert from their home. The boys are believed to be around the ages of 4 and 6.
WCAU quotes Upper Darby Township Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood as saying: “One of the children states, ‘Is mommy dead? Is mommy dead?’ and out the door they go.”
Belajonas and the two boys are believed to be traveling in a gray Nissan Pathfinder with Pennsylvania plates JDH7477 and police are pleading with the public to keep an eye for them. They may be headed to New York where Belajonas has ties.
According to WTXF, police say Belajonas should be considered armed and dangerous. If you think you’ve seen Belajonas and the boys or a gray Nissan Pathfinder with Pennsylvania plates JDH7477, please call 911 immediately.
