Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (WHTM) —On Monday, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro confirmed that a South Carolina man had been arrested in connection with a State College cold case dating back to 2016.
According to AG Shapiro, police arrested Christopher Kowalski for the killing of Jantagie, 60, who was shot dead at his home in Center County, Pine Grove Mills, on January 21, 2016.
“Jean died more than five years ago and her family hasn’t been closed since then,” said AG Shapiro. “Thanks to the hard-working efforts of our lawyers, investigators, and fellow law enforcement agencies who never gave up on the case, Christopher Kowalski’s arrest was the first to put her murderer behind the bar. It’s Ayumu. “
In January 2016, Thuggee was shot twice with a 9mm pistol and was found dead upon police arrival. Thuggee’s colleague Kowalshi remained a suspect until he was arrested on Monday.
According to police investigations, Taggie and Kowalski formed a friendship and later became romantically interested in her. In addition, Kowalski owned a 9mm pistol at the time of Thuggee’s murder.
Despite Kowalski selling the weapon, the new owner handed over the pistol to the police. “Weapon inspection revealed that it had many of the same characteristics as the identified murder weapon,” AG Shapiro explained in a written statement.
Kowalski eventually moved to South Carolina and now lives there. However, after an agent at the Attorney General’s office found and visited Kowalski, he admitted that he had killed Thuggee more than five years ago.
He is handed over to Pa and charged by Senior Deputy Prosecutor General Kelly Sekula.
“This issue was investigated by OAG Special Agent Chris Weaver and Detective Caleb Clouse of the Ferguson Township Police Department,” according to a statement by AG Shapiro.
