#AceNewsServices – PENNSYLVANIA – September 27 – Eric Frein man-hunt case has taken a surprising turn this last few days. According to the police they say the hard drive of a computer used by the suspect in the deadly ambush of Pennsylvania state police troopers provides evidence he has been planning an attack for years and preparing to avoid arrest.
‘POLICE: TROOPER AMBUSH SUSPECT PLOTTED FOR YEARS’
State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said a police inspection of the hard drive shows Eric Frein did Internet research on how to avoid police manhunts and on law enforcement technology and survival skills.
‘ Suspect Eric Frein identified in Shooting of Trooper’s ‘
Bivens said Frein might now be treating the dragnet in northeastern Pennsylvania as “a game – a war game, if you will.”
Authorities believe they have Frein contained within a 5-square-mile perimeter around his parents’ home in Canadensis.
‘ Police Trooper Bryan Dixon Laid to Rest ‘
They provided new details Friday, two weeks after a gunman opened fire at the state police barracks in Blooming Grove, killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and injuring a second trooper who remains hospitalized.
Frein has managed to elude hundreds of law enforcement officials looking for him in the thick woods around his parents’ home in Canadensis, taking advantage of the difficult terrain to keep them at bay.
He is believed to be armed with at least one high-powered rifle.
#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES (Pennsylvania) – September 21 – The suspect in the deadly ambush at a state police barracks in a remote part of north-eastern Pennsylvania remained at large for a ninth day Sunday as police appeared to have narrowed their search, largely shutting down the area where he lived with his parents but leaving neighbours with few answers about what’s going on just outside their front doors.
‘ Eric Frein FBI’s Most Wanted List ‘
With a helicopter flying overhead, law enforcement officers wearing bulletproof vests and armed with rifles continued their hunt for Eric Frein, 31, now on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
