Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele and Springfield Township Police Chief Michael E. Pitkow announce the arrest of Kenneth Shea, 37, of Feasterville-Trevose, for the First-Degree Murder of Elizabeth Shea on April 10, 2024, at her home in Wyndmoor.

The victim was found at approximately 7:30 a.m., April 10, 2024, by Springfield Township Police, who responded to a residence in the 1,000 block of Cromwell Lane for a requested wellness check. Police found Elizabeth Shea dead on the master bedroom floor, with obvious cut wounds to her head and neck, said authorities in a press release. 

A joint investigation into the homicide by Montgomery County Detectives and Springfield Township Police determined that an air conditioning unit had been pushed inside the residence, allowing access through the window. In the residence, four hard drives from the home’s digital recording units and three cellphones had been discarded in the bathroom sink and toilet.

Detectives obtained Uber records that showed that Kenneth Shea had utilized the ride share service in the early morning hours of April 10, 2024. He was picked up at 12:36 a.m. at Comfort Inn in Feasterville-Trevose and dropped off at 12:55 a.m. on Wainwright Road, which is behind the victim’s residence. At 3:37 a.m., the defendant was picked up on Wainwright Road and returned to the hotel at 3:58 a.m., where video surveillance from the lobby showed him arriving and going to Room 314. Location records for Kenneth Shea’s cellphone showed his phone was in the area of the Comfort Inn in the days leading up to the murder and throughout the day on April 10, 2024. At approximately 6 p.m., Bensalem Police S.W.A.T. officers were stationed outside of Room 314 and arrested Shea as he exited the room.

“This is a tragic case, and our hearts go out to the family of Elizabeth Shea,” said DA Steele. “I also want to thank the Bensalem Police for the significant resources they provided, including drone surveillance and a K-9, as well as numerous officers, which enabled this defendant to be taken into custody without incident.”
