William Enman, the admitted killer who walked away from a Camden County psychiatric hospital Sunday afternoon, was found today — on the grounds of the hospital. It was not immediately clear where Enman spent the past two days, but authorities said he left the Ancora Psychiatric Hospital in Winslow Township Sunday with a backpack full of “camping and survivalist equipment.”
Police searched the area around the hospital extensively, using infrared devices and a state police helicopter. The search even extended to Canada, where authorities said Enman bought a piece of property in Nova Scotia. In the end, a New Jersey State Police detective, working with a U.S. Marshals task force, found Enman in a wooded area of Ancora’s 80-acre campus. He was captured around 2:30 p.m.
Enman, 65, has been hospitalized since 1975, when he was found not guilty by reason of insanity in two homicides.
