Quincy Township supervisor, charged with stealing taxpayer money, has died

Quincy Township Supervisor Kerry Bumbaugh, who was charged earlier this year with defrauding the municipality and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania of about $150,000, has died.

“It is with deep grief that we acknowledge the loss of our friend and colleague Supervisor Kerry Bumbaugh,” a statement, posted Monday, reads on the Franklin County municipality's website. “We appreciate your patience and prayers as together we work through our loss as a Township.”

This comes at the same time that Pennsylvania State Police is investigating a death that occurred at the township building on Friday. No foul play was suspected, Trooper Megan Ammerman said, declining to name who died or under what circumstances. The agency does not release information on certain death investigations.

Franklin County Coroner Jeff Connor said there's an open investigation but declined to comment further.

Bumbaugh's attorney, Brian Perry, told PennLive that it was his client who died at the township building.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office charged 57-year-old Bumbaugh in May with a long list of offenses, including conflict of interest, theft, insurance fraud, forgery and tampering with records. The FBI served as a partner in the investigation.

“Kerry Bumbaugh abused his authority as Township Supervisor to steal from taxpayers and build pet projects at his home,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a news release at the time. “Thanks to our ongoing collaboration with federal law enforcement, we were able to uncover Mr. Bumbaugh’s crimes and take this step towards restoring trust for Quincy Township residents.”

Kerry Bumbaugh, a Quincy Township supervisor who was charged with stealing taxpayer money, has died. The municipality posted a statement on its website.

Investigators allege that Bumbaugh required township employees to make improvements at his private residence during their regular work hours. In addition, authorities allege he manipulated and falsified documents by inflating invoices to cover personal and township expenses.

Bumbaugh had a court date scheduled for Dec. 10, according to court records.

A woman who answered the phone at the municipal building on Tuesday referred questions to the township's solicitor, Linus Fenicle. He said he was aware of Bumbaugh's death, but he could not comment further.

Supervisors Tabb A. Justus and Lee Daywalt could not be reached for comment.

Check back later as this is a developing story.
