Pennsylvania State Troopers will fly to Connecticut on Tuesday to bring the accused killer Tracy Rollins Jr. back to Pennsylvania.
The soldiers will use Lycoming County Airport near Williamsport to travel to and from Connecticut on Tuesday. Rollins is due to be charged with the murder and abuse of corpses the same day.
Magistrate Jeffrey Mensch is expected to sue Rollins, 28, of Dallas, Texas, in the Mifflinburg District courtroom.
Rollins reportedly shot and killed Rebecca Landrith, 47, of Virginia, in his tractor-trailer and dumped her body along Interstate 80 in Union County. He skipped an extradition hearing in Connecticut last week, Union County District Attorney Pete Johnson said.
Rollins is charged with dumping Landrith at the exit of the Mile Run in West Buffalo Township after midnight on February 7th. The victim’s body was discovered later that morning.
The Pennsylvania State Police, in collaboration with other law enforcement agencies, tracked Rollins’ movements that led to the murder and beyond. They found an important clue in Landrith’s leather jacket: his name, phone number, and email address. Rollins was arrested in Connecticut on February 10 and held on bail of $ 1 million.
