MontCo DA Provides Timeline for Killing Rampage
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Correspondent

            The 35-year-old Pennsburg resident accused of killing six people, including his ex-wife, and injuring another, started his rampage early Monday morning in Souderton.

            Bradley William Stone allegedly killed all six in approximately two hours in three suburban communities throughout the county, according to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.  She said each victim has a familial relationship with Stone.

            Speaking briefly at the Lower Salford Township Building in Harleysville on Monday afternoon, Ferman said Stone, an Iraq War veteran who authorities consider armed and dangerous, remains at large.

            A resident of the unit block of East Fourth Street in Pennsburg, Stone – who is described as 5-foot-10, 195 pounds with a red/auburn beard and mustache with closely cropped hair, may or "may not" be using a cane or walker to get around, according to the DA.

            She said the suspect may be wearing military either sand or green colored fatigues.

            "We don't know where he is," Ferman said shortly after 6 p.m. "We do not have information on how he might be traveling."

            Flanked by Thomas Medwid, chief of the township's police department and Samuel J. Gallen, the chief county detective, Ferman identified the timeline of the alleged incidents.

            She stated that Stone, who served in the U.S. Marine Reserves from 2002 to 2011, went to a Souderton residence around 3:30 a.m., and killed the sister, brother in-law and 14-year-old niece of Nicole Stone.  According to Ferman, a 17-year-old nephew suffered injuries and received treatment at a Philadelphia hospital.

            She said the Souderton crime scene was the last one discovered Monday by authorities.

            At approximately 4:25 a.m., authorities responded to a 9-1-1 hang-up call to a home in Lansdale, where they discovered the dead bodies of Nicole Stone's mother and grandmother, according to Ferman.

            She said that law enforcement officials then responded to a residence in Lower Salford at approximately 4:55 a.m., where they discovered the body of Nicole Stone, 33.

            Bradley Stone dropped off their two daughters with a neighbor in Pennsburg, according to the district attorney.  "Both of the children are safe," Ferman said.

            The district attorney, who spoke for approximately 3 minutes, 47 seconds, did not take questions from the media. The law enforcement officials retreated to the police department inside the township building.
