Edward Berbon is still on the run after walking away from a work detail in Mount Laurel Saturday.

Where is Edward Berbon?

Mount Laurel police said they do not believe Berbon is in the township.

Department of Corrections spokeswoman Amy Z. Quinn told New Jersey 101.5 the agency's Special Investigation Division Fugitive Unit is coordinating with other law enforcement agencies as necessary to find Berbon. Quinn did not disclose where they believe Berbon may be.

Edward Berbon criminal record

Berbon had previously served prison sentences for theft and robbery. He attacked his parents at their home in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, in July 2004, just hours after he had been released from prison. It remains unclear what spurred those attacks.
