Death investigation underway in Quincy Twp.


QUINCY—Pennsylvania State Police are on the scene investigating a death at the Quincy Township municipal building on Mentzer Gap Road.

A spokesperson for PSP was unable to provide more information or the identity of the deceased.

The township has been embroiled with troubles much of the year.

In May, township supervisor Kerry Bumbaugh was arrested following an investigation involving the FBI and charged with seven felony counts and three misdemeanor counts for allegedly defrauding an estimated $150,000 from Quincy Township and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Bumbaugh, 57, is accused of misappropriating townships funds and resources by using township time, staff and equipment to work on his personal property, as well as falsifying grant and funding documents to cover his theft, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

He was released a short time later on $25,000 bail pending trial sometime in early 2022.
