CAMDEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY: A fugitive man from New Jersey was found dead on Tuesday, November 23, in a wooded area around a mile away from his family home. Gregory Kelemen, a 57-year-old father who hailed from Voorhees in Camden County, was wanted by the cops for allegedly murdering his own daughter and injuring his wife. Kelemen was accused of battering his daughter to death with a baseball bat, while his wife was found critically injured on early Monday, November 22. 

A similar shocking incident took place recently in New York where a 6-year-old boy was allegedly poisoned to death by his dad and stepmother. Thomas Hughes, 29, and Emma Tustin, 32, have been accused of murdering Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, who reportedly suffered an "unsurvivable brain injury". Arthur was subjected to a "campaign of cruelty" before he died, that matched the “medical definition of child torture”.

Katherine Kelemen, the 22-year-old daughter of Gregory Kelemen, was reportedly struck with the baseball bat repeatedly while she was in her bed. Meanwhile, his wife Sheri Kelemen later told cops that Gregory started attacking her as soon as she woke up on Monday morning. The 57-year-old was apparently screaming, "I can't take it anymore," while beating his wife. However, Sheri eventually managed to get away by crawling and called 911 for emergency help. 

Katherine was rushed to Jefferson University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma. Sheri was taken to another hospital where she is presently being treated for the injuries on her head and hands. 

Meanwhile, Gregory Kelemen's body was found with a bullet wound, which the prosecutor's office identified as "what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound". Further details about his death have not been revealed yet as the investigation is ongoing. But primary speculation is that he committed suicide by turning the gun on himself. 

Camden County Prosecutor's Office informed that Gregory Kelemen's lifeless body was found around 11:30 am on November 23, 2021. He reportedly fled home before the police officers arrived to rescue his wife and daughter. It is not certain where he was hiding after fleeing home or exactly when he died.
