CANADENSIS, Pa. – A 10-day manhunt for the survivalist accused of ambushing a Pennsylvania State Police barracks has narrowed to the rural area where he grew up and his parents still live.
But the suspect has managed to elude capture despite the efforts of hundreds of law enforcement officers.
State police have been closing roads in the Canadensis area as they hunt for 31-year-old Eric Frein (freen), who's charged with killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and seriously wounding another trooper outside the Blooming Grove barracks.
Residents have been unable to get back to their homes due to heavy police activity in the heavily wooded region of the Pocono Mountains. Tensions are running high among residents.
One resident, Bill Mew, said the lengthy manhunt has been nerve-wracking, especially with police choppers circling overhead.
