Montgomery County, PA - On Tuesday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's  Office (MCSO) confirmed that the body of Bradley William Stone, 35, of Pennburg was found in a wooded area about a half mile from his home. Stone was wanted in connection with Monday's murder of six victims in three suburbs near Philadelphia. Another victim was wounded in the shooting spree by Stone. All the victims were family related. Among the six victims, Stone killed his ex-wife, Nicole Hill Stone in front of his kids around 4:55 a.m. at an apartment in Salford Township.
Stone died of multiple self-inflicted knife wounds to his upper middle body, according to a preliminary report by the Montgomery County Coroner's Office.
He attempted to carjack a vehicle at knife point on Monday around 8:30 p.m. in Doylestown, Bucks County, but failed and fled to the nearby woods. Stone was considered armed and dangerous, according to the MCSO.
Surviving family members says, that Stone suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and had been discharged as a marine reservist. The massacre of family members was ignited by a legal custody battle between Nicole and Stone for their children.
