Governor confident ambush suspect will be caught

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett says he’s confident the survivalist charged in a deadly ambush at a police barracks will be caught.

Corbett discussed the manhunt for 31-year-old Eric Frein at a news conference Monday in Blooming Grove, near the barracks where Frein is charged with killing one trooper and seriously wounding another 10 days ago.

The governor thanked all of the hundreds of law enforcement officials who he said are putting their lives on the line as they comb through the dense northeastern Pennsylvania forest.

State police Lt. Col. George Bivens says the search area is narrowing and authorities believe they are close to him.
