Connecticut State Police are searching for a University of Connecticut student in connection with the killing of two people and an abduction, according to law enforcement officials.

Manfredonia is also a suspect in the killing of a 23-year-old male acquaintance in Derby, Connecticut that state police identified as Nicholas J. Eisle. Eisle was found dead in his home Sunday, according to Trooper First Class Christine Jeltema. Police believe Manfredonia then allegedly stole a black Volkswagen Jetta from the home.
