Armored Truck Suspect’s Parents Feuded With Neighbors
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police are still looking for the armored truck guard accused of killing his partner and stealing more than $2 million.
The people who live in his parents’ neighborhood in Dravosburg had plenty to say about the Konias family – off camera.
Kenneth Konias, Jr., 22, lived with his parents on Euclid Avenue.
According to court records, his parents, Kenneth, Sr., and Renee, have been involved in many lawsuits, dating back to 1995, winning several of them, including one against the former mayor of Dravosburg and the city.
In 2005, Mayor Gerald McGrue says he recommended Ken and Renee for a reality show called, “Loser Leaves Town.” It was about feuding neighbors and the loser must sell their house and move.
They were never on the show, but their neighbors say there was a lot of feuding which still continues.
The defamation of character lawsuit against the mayor and the city was settled in 2007.
Ken and Renee said the mayor breached his commitment to public office by submitting their names to the reality show.
Pittsburgh Police and the FBI have interviewed all of the GARDA workers in the Strip District and talked to the suspect’s friends and his parents.
Meantime, the FBI released a new “Wanted” poster and posted it on their website as “Case of the Week.”
