Two years ago, a second brother admitted to robbing and murdering a New Jersey man before dumping his body in the Pennsylvania woods.
Anthony J. Gamble, 22, of the Somerset section of Franklin, pleaded guilty to murder and criminal conspiracy to commit robbery in June 2021, according to the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office. Gamble was charged in the death of Kevin Rosero.
Joshua D. Gamble, 19, of Somerset, Pennsylvania, pled guilty to robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, theft, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and abuse of a corpse last year.
Both defendants will be sentenced in November.
Two weeks prior to his 27th birthday on June 17, 2021, Rosero passed away. According to the Bucks County District Attorney and arrest affidavits, his body was discovered shortly after midnight in a wooded area off a road in Richland Township, close to Quakertown, after police arrested two bloodied suspects.
Rosero was stabbed 28 times in the face, neck, upper torso, and upper extremities, as determined by an autopsy.
At 12:03 a.m., Pennsylvania state troopers discovered two vehicles on the side of East Pumping Station Road near Heller Road. One had New Jersey license plates, while the other was leased.
An affidavit stated that Joshua Gamble was discovered on the ground near a vehicle while wearing gloves and with blood on his shoes and key fob. Anthony Gamble was discovered with blood on his shirt and shoes in the nearby woods. He had work gloves in his pocket as well.
According to the affidavits, the troopers saw “substantial amounts of blood” in the rental car and requested backup before discovering Rosero’s body a short distance into the woods.
Investigators allegedly recovered a blood-stained knife from the rental vehicle, as well as a cellphone, sanitizing wipes, and a second phone in the Audi, according to officials.
A receipt from a nearby 7-Eleven indicating the purchase of two sets of work gloves and sanitizing wipes at 11:41 p.m. that night was discovered in the other vehicle, according to authorities. CCTV footage and other evidence confirmed that Joshua Gamble made the purchase.
The Bucks County DA stated that an examination of Anthony Gamble’s cellphone revealed searches for “7-Eleven,” “junk yards near me,” and “can soap remove fingerprints.” 43 minutes before troopers spotted the vehicles and began their investigation, Joshua Gamble’s phone displayed a $400 transfer from Rosero’s CashApp account at 11:20 p.m.
In 2019, Rosero earned a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University after graduating from Plainfield High School and Raritan Valley Community College.
“He always brought light to everyone, but his flame burned differently,” said Khushwant Pall, who became friends with Rosero at Raritan Valley Community College, where they both attended. “He was not only a man of God, but also a remarkable son, an exceptional student, and a remarkable friend.
In a phone interview in 2021, Pall remarked, “His demeanour and everything else about him were extremely rare in this world.” “He always stood up for what was right. He advocated for fairness.”
Friends report that Roseo intended to attend law school to become an immigration attorney.
