Pennsylvania man stalked estranged wife before failed attempt to kidnap, rape and murder her: DA

Disturbing details have emerged Sunday about a Pennsylvania man accused of stalking his estranged wife in an alleged failed attempt to kidnap, rape and murder her.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office says Jeffrey Caconway Sr., 52, stabbed his soon-to-be ex-wife multiple times in the leg in the parking lot of the King of Prussia Walmart around 10:45 a.m. It was announced that.

Upper Merion Township police responded to a domestic assault in progress and found the victim in the parking lot after running from the vehicle. Officials said the suspect was found in a nearby parking lot with a “large metal pick” sticking out of his sweatshirt pocket and was tied with black zip ties shaped like handcuffs.

Officers found other disturbing items inside the suspect’s pickup truck, including several “drilling tools,” a blindfold, duct tape, a knife, pliers and other tools. One of the piercing tools had the victim’s name written on it, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
