Manhunt intensifies for husband who killed his wife and mother of his four children

GARDNER, MA – Authorities in Gardner, Massachusetts, intensify their search for Aaron Pennington, a local man sought for questioning following the discovery of his wife’s body inside their Cherry Street home. Breanne “Breezy” Pennington, aged 30, was found deceased on Sunday, prompting immediate concern for the couple’s four children, who were later placed under state protection by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Family Services.

Aaron’s white BMW, found abandoned in the woods near Camp Collier, a local Boy Scout camp, provided the first tangible lead. Despite the Massachusetts State Police Special Tactical Operations Team securing the area and executing a thorough search, Pennington remained elusive. As the urgency grew, Gardner Police Department issued a statement urging residents to be vigilant, describing Pennington as potentially “armed and dangerous.”

Earlier reports from WBZ News revealed a worrying prelude to the incident. The Pennington children, having confided in neighbors, painted a grim picture: their mother in distress and their father nowhere to be found. The couple’s ongoing marital issues and Breanne’s intent to move to Texas further underscored the severity of their domestic situation.

Adding to the complexity, conflicting information has surfaced regarding Aaron Pennington’s background. While his LinkedIn account suggests employment at defense contractor Raytheon and a stint with the U.S. Air Force, Raytheon denies any affiliation. Meanwhile, Breanne’s recent social media posts hint at a recent move from California and exciting plans to renovate an old colonial revival home they had purchased.

Public appeals emphasize caution, urging anyone with information on Pennington’s whereabouts to reach out to local police without direct confrontation.
