Sean Lannon was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service on Wednesday morning for his suspected connection with multiple murders that occurred across the United States over the last two weeks.
Lannon is accused of killing 66-year-old Michael Dabkowski who was found on Monday inside of a laundry room with multiple wounds on his head in New Jersey’s East Greenwich Township. An autopsy later found that Dabkowski had died from blunt force trauma.
Lannon has also been charged with breaking into a building while armed with a knife on Monday in Monroeville, Elk Township. According to authorities, the 47-year-old stole Dabkowski’s 2018 blue Honda CRV and took off toward the southwest part of the country. He was arrested in Missouri on Wednesday.
In addition to the murder in New Jersey, Lannon is a person of interest in a quadruple murder that occurred in New Mexico last week. Albuquerque police reported that the bodies of Lannon’s ex-wife, Jennifer, and three others were found Friday in a pickup truck that was abandoned in an airport parking garage. Court documents show that the Lannon’s divorced in 2019.
Following Dabkowski’s murder, police reported that they received a call from a credible witness revealing that Lannon had admitted to committing both the quadruple homicide in New Mexico and the murder in New Jersey. However, Lannon is currently only facing murder charges in New Jersey and has not yet been charged with any other crimes outside of the state.
