A suspect accused of killing a New Jersey man and considered a person of interest in the deaths of four people in New Mexico, including his ex-wife, confessed to killing 16 people -- a claim authorities were investigating.
Lannon is suspected in the death of a previously unidentified man whose body was found in East Greenwich, N.J., on March 8. Lannon was last seen on the same day at a Camden bus station, about 18 miles away from East Greenwich.
The other three victims found at the parking garage were identified as Matthew Miller, 21; Jesten Mata, 40; and Randal Apostalon, 60.
Matthew Miller had been missing since February. The Grants, New Mexico Police Dept. said in February that Jennifer Lannon and Jesten Mata were wanted in connection with Miller’s disappearance.
The Associated Press reports Jennifer Lannon, Miller and Mata were friends, and Apostalon lived out of his car and was known to give rides for money, according to Grants Police. The bodies were found in Apostalon’s car.
