The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Acting Chief Matthew Finck and the Paramus Police Department under the direction of Chief Robert M.

On Friday, February 16, 2024, at approximately 5:40 p.m., the Paramus Police Department responded to 693 Bruce Drive, Paramus, NJ on the report of a possible homicide. Upon arrival, responding officers located a 61-year-old male, identified as Manuel V. Thomas, in the basement of the residence. Mr. Thomas had sustained multiple stab wounds and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Shortly thereafter, MELVIN THOMAS was identified as the suspect and taken into police custody in Paramus, NJ.

As a result of the investigation, on Friday, February 16, 2024, MELVIN THOMAS was arrested in Paramus, NJ and charged with first-degree murder, N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3(a)1; second-degree desecration of human remains, N.J.S.A. 2C:22-1a(1); second-degree hindering, N.J.S.A. 2C:29-3b(3); third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, N.J.S.A. 2C:39-4d; and fourth-degree possession of a weapon, N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5d.

  1. I googled and looked at dozens of articles on this murder.
    No photo of MELVIN THOMAS.
    No description of MELVIN THOMAS .

    You know what that means — not the right physical profile to meet the medias agenda.

    Eventually found a photo and confirmed — NOT a media approved White Male —
    so media blackout of any identifying characteristics in any article on the murder.

    1. thanks for posting what we all know. I also found his picture. I’ll be waiting for the ass kissing liberal media to blame the father for his criminal sons behavior
