Suspect Follows Pharma CEO 50 Miles From Casino, Kills Him at His NJ Home

According to reports, a Pharma executive was robbed and murdered after being followed 50 miles to his New Jersey home from a Pennsylvania casino with roughly $10,000 in winnings.

The suspect, Jekai Reid-John, 27, was nabbed by police in New Jersey last week. Authorities say Reid-John didn’t know the executive, Sree Aravapalli, before the fatal robbery.

“An investigation by Detective William Atkinson of the Plainsboro Police Department and Detective Paul Kelley of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined Aravapalli was fatally shot in his home during an attempted robbery,” prosecutors wrote. “The investigation ultimately determined Jekai Reid-John, 27, of Norristown, PA targeted Aravapalli in Pennsylvania and followed him home to his Plainsboro residence where the offense occurred.”

He is charged with one count of first-degree murder.
