Search for accused cop killer Eric Frein enters week three
Pennsylvania State Police say there have been no confirmed sightings of Eric Frein over the weekend, but they have gotten plenty of tips.
Robert Reinheimer called about a possible underground hiding spot. “They did want the information, and wanted to know if I could show them where it was at,” said Reinheimer.
Hundreds of police officers have spent more than two weeks searching but Frein has eluded them since the deadly ambush on September 12th. The search is taking a toll, and neighbors want him caught. "I pray every day , I just want this over and done with, I want this guy caught and just gone from this area," said Shaun Rowe, who lives in Price Township.
Police say Frein recently called his parents which gives them a better idea of where he might be. They believe he's hiding deep in the woods along the border of Monroe and Pike Counties, where the search has been focused. It has been narrowed down to a 5-mile radius by his parent's home in Canadensis.
Residents have been asked to avoid hunting and target practice. Some people say hunting season needs to be put on hold until he has been found. "They shouldn't have hunting season this year, because there are going to be people out there looking for this idiot, and innocent people are going to get killed or shot," said neighbor Teresa Demontreux.
