The search for Eric Frein, from the Blooming Grove area all the way to the Canadensis area, has caused a lot of havoc for people who live and work there.
The people in the search area especially have been seriously inconvenienced by this manhunt. As I’ve mentioned before, this is a very remote and heavily wooded area. Depending on where you live, grocery stores can be 20 miles or more away. Convenience stores can be 5-10 miles away. People can’t just walk to the corner store and pick up a quart of milk. If you can get out to go to work, you may not be able to get back to your house when you get off. Families have separated. Others have had their vacations ruined. I saw an interview with one out of state man who just wanted to get his belongings (including needed medicine) and go home but he wasn’t allowed back in.
Mail deliveries have been suspended for many:
Mail Delivery Disrupted
Schools that have been closed since last Tuesday have only re-opened yesterday or today. Two townships will not be served by school buses until further notice. Those parents must drive their kids to school. Two schools in the search area remain closed:
The man who found the suspect’s Jeep has come forward. He was originally described as just out walking his dog but he now says he was out there specifically to look for clues:
Man Who Found Jeep…
Someone commented in another page of mine that this guy should be referred to as a terrorist and I can’t argue with this. The entire county, and the search area especially, has been terrorized. I only have one child of school age left and she shared a fair amount of trepidation with us about returning to school but we insisted she go. Eleven days and counting - the authorities still seem to certain that he is in their search area but they have not found him yet.
