Did he have any teenage boys around? Leonardo Ponzio was asked.

“I only saw people who would be working on his yards. He would have people come over and work on his yard, that’s it. I’m telling you, he was never home, he was not here. I used to think he should have sold the house because he was never home, he was never here. He was so NOT HERE, more than here.”

Two others have been arrested and charged in the same investigation, including ___, 23, of Toms River, and ____, 53, of Walden Circle, Robbinsville, Mercer County.
