Man strangled mom found dead in park, authorities say
Hamilton Police have made an arrest in the murder of a woman found inside Roebling Park in the Mercer County community.
Acting Mercer County Prosector Angelo Onofrio in a news release said Tyron D. Lindsay, 38, of Hamilton was arrested at his job in Lawrence Township on Tuesday night and charged with the first-degree murder of Jessica Prusik, who was found strangled to death in the state park not far from Route 195 in early October.
An investigation by Hamilton Police, U.S. Marshals and the Mercer County Homicide Task Force found surveillance video showing Prusick in Lindsay's 1992 Ford F150 pickup truck heading toward the park on Oct. 6 and concluded Lindsay was with Prusick on Oct. 5, the day before her body was found, the prosecutor's office said.
Lindsay was found with Prusick's bank cards on Oct. 7, the day he was arrested on unrelated warrants, the prosecutor's office said.
Prosecutor's Office spokesperson Casey DeBlasio described the two as acquaintances.
Prusick was married with two children and five stepchildren.
Lindsay's truck was later found in Bristol, Penn. by police after putting out an alert for a similar type of truck, the prosecutor's office said.
Lindsay is being held on $1 million bail in the Mercer County jail.
