NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (PIX11) — A man stabbed two people to death in a New Jersey park on Saturday before killing himself, authorities said Monday.
Investigators found Gabriela De La Cruz Camero, 22, and Jesus Antonio-Salazar, 25, with multiple stab wounds in Feaster Park, near Handy Street and Throop Avenue, just after 11 p.m., police said. Antonio-Salazar died at the scene. Camero was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.
A few hours after the gruesome discovery, police found Eduardo Mateo Lorenzo, 26, dead in an apparent suicide near 7 Pine St., less than a mile from Feaster Park, authorities said.
