Cops: NJ man sought in ex-wife's slaying found dead in upstate NY motel; daughters safe
FORT MONTGOMERY, N.Y. (AP) ' Police say the New Jersey man wanted for questioning in the murder of his ex-wife has apparently committed suicide in an upstate New York motel and his two young daughters are safe.
New York State Police say they found Anthony Trapp dead on a bed in his room at the Bear Mountain Bridge Motel in Fort Montgomery about an hour after the girls came out of the room on their own around 7:30 a.m. Friday.
New York police wouldn't say how Trapp died, but New Jersey authorities say he apparently killed himself.
Trapp's ex-wife, Heather, was found dead in his Old Bridge Township home Thursday.
An Amber Alert issued for the couple's children, 20-month-old Sophia and 5-year-old Emma, was canceled when the girls were found safe.
