Pennsylvania Police Capture Suspected Cop Killer Eric Frein

After 48 days of living with helicopters, heavily armed police officers, the rumors and constant questions — where is he? — the people of northeast Pennsylvania can finally relax.
The manhunt for Eric Matthew Frein, accused of killing a Pennsylvania state trooper, is over. Heavily armed U.S. marshals captured Frein on Thursday night and turned him over to state police, who slapped the slain officer’s cuffs on him, put him in the back of the trooper’s squad car and sent him back to the barracks where the ambush occurred.
“We just thought it was fitting,” State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said.
Frein, 31, is charged with first-degree murder and other charges in a September 12 ambush outside the state police barracks in Blooming Grove.
He’s accused of killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex T. Douglass before melting into the thick Pennsylvania woods.
Authorities had worried the survivalist and military buff with a reported history of cop hatred might go out in a violent standoff. In the end, he gave up without a fight.
