PALMERTON, Pa. (AP) — State police say a man “distraught” over a breakup killed his former girlfriend and himself at an eastern Pennsylvania home.
Police in Berks County said 27-year-old Kyle Gruver of Fleetwood went to the Lower Towamensing Township home sometime Thursday.
There, police said, he bludgeoned, stabbed and shot 26-year-old Megan Leland of Palmerton, then shot himself.
Police called the case an “isolated incident” and asked anyone with information about the two to call troopers at the Lehighton barracks.
