Vineland Woman Charged With Moving & Desecrating a Man’s Body
A Vineland woman is being held by the Cumberland County Department of Corrections after being charged with moving and desecrating human remains.
Police say Shannon Difonzo, 33, of the 1000 block of Carlton Place, moved a dead man's body to a dirt path along railroad tracks off of Park and Crystal avenues in Vineland on Sunday, Nov. 1.
The Vineland Daily Journal reports court records show that when police executed a search warrant at her home, they found Difonzo wearing a hooded sweatshirt known to belong to the dead man.
Police located a surveillance video from a home in the neighborhood that shows two people moving a body in a wagon near the location where the human remains were later found.
As the video continues, the pair are seen leaving the area with the wagon, which is then empty. The identity of other person seen in the video is not known.
The Vineland Daily Journal reports that police have identified the dead man and have spoken to a woman who says she was his girlfriend. She told police her boyfriend was last seen wearing a personalized hooded sweatshirt with the image of the clown from the movie “It,” according to the police statement.
When police went to DiFonzo's home, she was wearing the 'It' sweatshirt. A wagon was also found at her residence.
Difonzo is charged with two counts of disturbing/desecrating human remains and one count of conspiracy.
This death is being ruled "suspicious " by detectives, who are asking that anyone who has any information about this case contact them immediately at (856) 691-4111.
