Prosecutor: Ambush suspect a ‘Christian Terrorist’ who Targeted police
Accused cop killer Eric Frein had contact lenses, first aid supplies, toilet paper, a book of the New Testament, a religious plaque and even DVDs stashed in the abandoned airport hangar near where he was captured, authorities revealed today.
The long list of supplies reveals just how prepared Frein, accused of shooting two state troopers in September, was to survive a manhunt.
Police recovered Frein’s notebooks, a 14-page note and typed pages with random prayers, along with various ammunition, in the search. Police previously found weapons, ammunition, food and other supplies scattered throughout the woods in weeks leading up to the capture.
Frein, 31, appeared in court on Friday and was charged with first-degree murder, homicide of a law enforcement officer, attempted murder and possession of weapons of mass destruction. He did not enter a plea.
Jurors have heard closing arguments in the trial of a survivalist charged with ambushing two troopers at a Pennsylvania State Police barracks.
Pike County District Attorney Ray Tonkin called Eric Frein (freen) a “Christian terrorist” who targeted police in an attempt to spark a revolution.
