Accused cop killer Eric Frein, one of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives, was captured yesterday after a 48-day manhunt, police said.
“Eric Frein was dedicated to killing law enforcement members,” Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said in a news conference with Gov. Tom Corbett. “I can’t think of a more dangerous occupation than going out into those woods and looking for him.”
Noonan said several thousand members of various departments in at least five states spent countless hours looking for Frein.
Frein, 31, was captured by U.S. Marshals outside an abandoned airplane hanger at Birchwood-Pocono Airport near Tannersville about 6 p.m. Thursday, police said.
