Troopers: Bombs Found During Search for Eric Frein
Authorities announced Tuesday afternoon they have found explosives in the woods they believe belong to Eric Frein.
At a 3 p.m. news conference, troopers revealed they’ve discovered two pipe bombs in the woods within the past 24 hours.
State police claim that Frein was spotted by police within 24 hours of the press conference. The hope seems to be that he is tired and stressed and making mistakes like letting the bombs be found. They say they’ve found “supplies” but haven’t mentioned anything specific outside of the pipe bombs.
Bow hunting of deer starts this weekend but there could be restrictions put on hunting in the search area. A final decision on that hasn’t been made. I’m sure they’re hoping to find him before they have to ban hunting there. That will be a very unpopular decision.
Adding insult to injury, another state trooper was killed in an accidental shooting at a training center outside Philadelphia.
