Authorities have not identified the victim, who authorities said was found stabbed to death in a wooded area along the 500 block of East Pumping Station Road in Richland Township, outside Quakertown. The autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
The investigation began at 12:03 p.m. when a Pennsylvania State Police officer spotted an apparently disabled silver Subaru, registered in New Jersey, with blinders along East Pumping Station Road, north of Heller Road, according to the statement. A second car, an Audi A5 with a Florida license plate, was parked about 30 yards from the Subaru, police said.
When the officer approached the Audi, he saw someone lying on the ground in a nearby forest, called them and received no response, the statement said. Police arrested the person, who was later identified as Joshua Gamble, the statement said.
He had blood on his shoes and was in possession of a bloodstained Subaru key, Weintraub said.
The soldiers then heard what sounded like a man running through the nearby forest, and a second male subject appeared, who allegedly walked towards the Subaru. He was identified as Anthony Gamble and had blood on his shoes and shirt, Weintraub said.
Both boys were wearing coated work gloves purchased with disinfectant wipes at a nearby 7-Eleven in Richlandtown about 20 minutes before state police arrived, the statement said.
Investigators found “a significant amount of blood in the Audi” and found the body of the deceased male victim in a nearby forest, the statement said. He apparently had stab wounds to the head, neck, upper chest and arm, authorities said.
A large knife with blood on the blade and wooden handle was found on the passenger side floor of the Audi, Weintraub said. Investigators said there was a cell phone and disinfectant wipes on the roof of the Audi, and a second cell phone in the car.
The victim was reportedly killed in Bucks County and Weintraub’s office would follow the case.
“The Gamble brothers have no obvious connection to this region since they are Richland,” Weintraub said. “Obviously this case is ongoing, I can’t predict the future, I don’t know what other facts will be revealed to us, but at the moment we see no reason why they are in Bucks County, in the Township of Richland. ”
According to Weintraub, Anthony Gamble and Joshua Gamble were charged with felony murder, criminal conspiracy, possession of a criminal instrument and manipulation of evidence before a district judge on Thursday. You will be held in the Bucks County Jail and a preliminary hearing will be held to see if there is enough evidence to bring the charges in county court.
