EAST GREENWICH, N.J. – Investigators are searching for a man wanted for questioning about a slaying in New Jersey and a quadruple homicide in New Mexico, officials say.
Sean Lannon, 47, is wanted for questioning about the discovery on Friday of four decomposed bodies in a vehicle at an airport parking garage in Albuquerque, New Mexico, police said.
Lannon is also wanted for questioning in regards to a Monday killing in East Greenwich, New Jersey. The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office did not disclose details of the incident.
One of the victims discovered in New Mexico was identified as 39-year-old Jennifer Lannon.
Court records in New Mexico indicate Sean Lannon filed for divorce from Jennifer Lannon in August 2018 and won a decision in his favor in February 2019.
The divorce action sought custody of one or more children, the court record says.
Jennifer Lannon and two other persons found dead in the vehicle — 21-year-old Matthew Miller and 40-year-old Jesten Mata — had been sought for weeks by police in Grants, New Mexico, a town about 75 miles west of Albuquerque.
Miller was last seen around Jan. 24, according to a Facebook post by Grants police.
The fourth victim in the vehicle was identified as Randal Apostalon, 60, of Albuquerque.
Sean Lannon also was charged with burglary and possession of a weapon after allegedly forcing entry into a home Monday in Elk Township, New Jersey, the prosecutor’s office said.
It alleged Lannon had a knife during the break-in.
The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Sean Lannon’s arrest, according to the prosecutor’s office.
Lannon may be operating a 2018 blue Honda CR-V with New Jersey license plates U71JXG, the prosecutor’s office said.
It said he was “possibly last seen” around 3 p.m. Monday in Camden, New Jersey.
Lannon is described as a bald white man with blue eyes, about 5-foot-9 and weighing 140 to 165 pounds.
“Please do not approach subject if located,” the prosecutor’s office said.
Anyone with information about Lannon’s whereabouts can contact the prosecutor’s office at (856) 384-5500 or Sgt. John Petroski at 856-498-6238 or [email protected]
