Police Video Shows Suspects in Deaths of Two From South Jersey
Philadelphia Police have released a video showing the suspects in the double fatal shooting of a woman from Vineland and a man from Buena Vista who were found brutally murdered inside a car in Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion neighborhood on June 15.
Stephanie Coccaro, 34, and William Dean, 38, were each shot in the head and found inside a black Nissan, according to Philadelphia Police.
On Wednesday, police released video from about 9:30PM Monday, June 14, showing a black Nissan pull up and three suspects fleeing the vehicle. Police say the victims were also inside the car.
The video shows the three suspects running from the car. One of the three, who is wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, comes back to the scene to pick up what may have been a cell phone. The suspect is then picked up by another vehicle before fleeing the scene.
The two victims from South Jersey were found the next day. Police have offered a $20,000 reward for information and a conviction.
"We do believe that they pulled up to the location with the suspects already inside of the vehicle in the rear passenger seats of the car," said Deputy Commissioner Ben Naish.
Two Go Fund Me pages have been established to cover funeral costs for Stephanie Coccaro, who was the mother of a son named Christian.
The emotional trauma of her loss, leaves us reeling with the reality of how to say goodbye, without the financial means to absorb the high cost of a funeral. Stephanie's greatest love of all was her son Christian. Stephanie dedicated her life to housing, nurturing and saving those animals and people that were abused and or abandon. Stephanie the kind, beautiful, amazing, person that would give her last for her friends and family, deserves to be honored by those that loved and adored her.
One of the Go Fund Me campaigns was started by Coccaro's co-worker at Olive Garden in Vineland.
She was a great mother, sister, friend and all around good person. As a co-worker I could always count on her being a team player for our restaurant, helping things run smoothly, lifting our spirits and talking about something she was passionate about. She is deeply missed by everyone.
William Dean, lived in the 200 block of Greenbrier Avenue in Richland.
