Strange Twist in Wyalusing Homicide Report
Kathy Whyte/WNBF News [file][/caption]A Central Pennsylvania reporter has even more of a story to tell after learning a person she interviewed concerning a body found in a creek near Camptown in Wyalusing Township May 31 is not only a suspect in the deceased woman’s death but is the victim’s son.
Newswatch 16 WNEP reporter Kristina Papa was covering the story in Bradford County June 1 and spoke to a nearby resident, Matthew Haverly, concerning the discovery of the body. The 38 year old man appeared concerned as he told Papa on-camera, ”It’s sad to say that’s someone’s either daughter, mother or whatever.” He also talked about how his 60 year old mother, Patricia Haverly, who lived nearby, would also be concerned.
A few hours after the piece aired, Matthew Haverly was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police and charged with homicide and abuse of a corpse.
An autopsy was scheduled to be performed on Patricia Haverly’s body June 1st. The results have not been released.
