Sree Ranga Aravapalli Wiki – Sree Ranga Aravapalli Biography
Sree Ranga Aravapalli was a New Jersey Man Who Won $10K at Casino Followed Home and Murdered.
Aravapalli left the Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, early Tuesday morning and drove to his home 50 miles away in Plainsboro, New Jersey, where his family was sleeping.
He was 54 years old.
EZ Pass records revealed a white BMW with a temporary Delaware license plate, aftermarket wheels. A black spoiler followed Aravapalli as he entered the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Courier Times reported. The same car followed Aravapalli off the turnpike at 3:20 a.m., and the 911 call came just 18 minutes later.
The attack was a robbery gone wrong – Aravapalli cashed out winnings of around $10,000 before leaving the casino. Reid-John didn’t know Aravapalli but watched him take off, then hit the road to follow him home around 3 a.m; police told NBC4 New York.
The 54-year-old CEO of Aurex Labs in East Windsor hadn’t made it upstairs, where his wife and daughter were sleeping when Reid-John allegedly busted in through a back sliding door, which was covered with plywood Thursday, the station reported.
In their search for the killer, investigators found security camera footage that showed Aravapalli driving toward his residence and someone else in another vehicle tailing him. The footage later showed that exact car driving back.
Police say the driver of the other vehicle is 27-year-old Jekai Reid-John and believe he shot Aravapalli with the intent to steal his casino winnings.
Officers arrested Reid-John in Pennsylvania on a charge of first-degree murder, with additional charges expected, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. An extradition hearing is pending.
Public records show that Reid-John had been on parole in Pennsylvania. His criminal history was not immediately available.
