Ferman Provides Tuesday Update
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Correspondent

            Law enforcement officials will focus on the northwest portion of Montgomery County in their search for Bradley William Stone, the Pennsburg resident suspected of killing six people on Monday, according to DA Risa Vetri Ferman.

            In an update Tuesday, Ferman said authorities will continue to search the locations where Stone is known to frequent.

            The district attorney called a lead on Stone's location that emerged Monday night in Bucks County  "not valid."

            Charges have not been filed yet, according to Ferman. She described the homicide investigation as fluid.

            "We are accessing every possible law enforcement resource to find Mr. Stone," said Ferman, flanked by numerous officials from various jurisdictions from a room inside the county's communication center in Eagleville.

Eight SWAT teams are working with numerous law enforcement departments, according to Ferman.

            "This has been a collaborative effort," she said. "We are utilizing every possible lead that is an option. We will find Mr. Stone."

            The district attorney advised the public to be cautious and observant. She directed any resident who sees Stone to call 9-1-1 rather than attempt to stop him.

            "I don't want to upset the public," Ferman said. "But Mr. Stone should be considered armed and dangerous."

            An autopsy of the six victims is ongoing, according to Ferman.

She said Anthony Flick, a 17-year-old who survived Monday's attack, is in serious but stable condition. Ferman added that Stone's current wife, their child and Stone's other two children are safe.

            "The past day and a half has been extremely harrowing," she said around noon.

Authorities presented side-by-side photos of Stone with a beard and clean shaven. According to Ferman the photo of the suspect with a beard – taken in November – recovered from his cell phone. She said the other photo had been digitally altered to show Stone without facial hair.

            Less than one hour after Ferman's update a body, believed to be that of Bradley William Stone was found in a small wooded area in Upper Hanover Township, just outside of Pennsburg.
