CAMDEN, NJ — Two Camden men were indicted in connection to the December 2019 homicide of 31-year-old Hayley Steinberg, Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer and Camden County Police Chief Joe Wyscoki announced Friday.
Luis Colon-Molina, 36, and Wilfredo Boulones-Cruz, 49, were indicted for murder, armed robbery, felony murder, carjacking, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and resisting arrest.
On Dec 2, Camden County Police found Steinberg dead from multiple stab wounds and “blunt force trauma to the upper body” around 12 p.m. near Farnham Park on the 1600 block of Baird Blvd.
“One hour before Steinberg was found, investigators say Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) police officers responded to a stopped car on the Ben Franklin Bridge,” the authorities said in the release. “Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Jose Rosado and Camden County Detective Sean Miller handled the investigation and learned that [the] car was registered to Steinberg’s mother and Steinberg was known to use it.”
Colon-Molina and Boulnes-Cruz were later found walking on the roadway of the bridge — claiming their car had run out of gas.
While DPRA officers helped them push Steinberg’s car off the bridge, the men reportedly took off running.
They were later apprehended.
Throughout the investigation “a large amount of blood” was found in the vehicle. Surveillance footage later showed Steinberg pulling up to the men’s home in Camden the afternoon of Dec. 1.
Police said, “footage from later that afternoon [also] showed the car entering the park and leaving five minutes later.”
