Folsom Borough, Atlantic County – Troopers from the Buena Vista Barracks arrested Jeremiah Monell earlier today after a two-week manhunt. Monell had previously been charged with Murder and other related offenses in the December 18, 2016 homicide of his estranged wife, Tara O’Shea-Watson.
At approximately 2:45 p.m., a witness contacted the New Jersey State Police Buena Vista Barracks after recognizing Monell in Folsom Borough.
Troopers arrived on scene shortly thereafter and discovered Monell hiding in a wooded area off US Highway 322. He was placed under arrest and taken into custody without incident.
Monell was transported to an area hospital for a medical evaluation. He will be lodged in jail thereafter.
A $1,000 reward was offered for Monell, but it was not said whether or not the witness will receive the reward.
