State Police Identify Victim in Road Rage Homicide; Asking for Eyewitnesses to Come Forward

State Police have released additional information into Monday's homicide along Route 61 near Orwigsburg.

During a press conference Monday evening, Pennsylvania State Police Troop L Press Information Officer David Beohm identified the victim as George Marcincin, 38, of Orwigsburg.

Boehm reported that around 2:00pm, Monday, Troopers were dispatched to the area of Route 61 and Brick Hill Road for a report of a stabbing.

Before police arrived, the suspect, who has not been identified, had fled the scene in a silver sedan, according to witnesses.

A short time later, Orwigsburg Police initiated a traffic stop on a four-door Honda Accord that matched the description.  The driver failed to stop and a short pursuit ensued.

In the area of Holly Road and Chestnut Ridge Drive, the suspect pulled over and was taken into custody.

Through interviews, police learned that the incident was a case of road rage while traveling south on Route 61. Near Brick Hill Road, the suspect and Marcincin, driving a red Dodge Ram, exited their vehicles and got into a physical confrontation.

The suspect then pulled a knife and proceeded to stab the victim multiple times and fled.

The Pennsylvania State Police are asking for anyone that may have witnessed the incident or anything that happened prior between the Dodge Ram and the Honda Accord to contact the Schuylkill Haven Barracks at (570) 754-4600.
