SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - An Orrstown, Pa., woman on Saturday became the third person to die from last month's murder-suicide that began with a bar argument.

Jennifer Todd, 21, of 13382 Cumberland Highway, was pronounced dead at 7:59 p.m. due to complications from multiple gunshot wounds, Franklin County (Pa.) Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said Monday.

Todd was taken to Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center following the May 24 incident that began at 2 a.m. at the Hot Point Inn in Shippensburg, according to Herald-Mail reports. She remained hospitalized until her death.

Robert Traylor, 21, of Fogelsanger Road, Shippensburg, was pronounced dead at the scene in a parking lot near the bar, Conner said on the day of the incident.


Steven David B'Sedek, 37, of 25 N. Washington St., was found dead in a North Washington Street apartment following a seven-hour standoff that day, Pennsylvania State Police said.

B'Sedek was found dead when the state police Special Emergency Response Team entered the building about 1:30 p.m.

The argument that started in the Hotpoint Avenue bar spilled out into the parking lot, where B'Sedek and another man in one car followed Traylor, Todd and two other people in a second car.

The vehicles stopped in a nearby gravel parking lot in the 600 block of Avon Road, across from Shippensburg's wastewater treatment plant. The argument continued, and shots were fired.

State police said B'Sedek shot Traylor and Todd before fleeing.

The other occupants in Traylor's car - Bradley Rine and Robin Krugh - were uninjured.
