Manhunt for alleged cop-killer cancels Halloween in northeastern Pennsylvania

Matthew Eric Frein, 31 (Pennsylvania Department of Transport)

Authorities in the Keystone State have so far spent more than six weeks on the lookout for Frein, 31, after he allegedly murdered a cop, Pennsylvania State Police Officer Bryon K. Dickson II, on September 12, and consequentially ended up on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.

While investigators continue to comb through the state searching for the man, however, their hunt has so far been unsuccessful and has now led to officials in rural Barrett Township to suspend Halloween activities.

The FBI considers Frein to be armed and dangerous, and is offering an award of up to $100,000 for information leading to his whereabouts. Federal authorities describe him as a “weapons enthusiast” and a “survivalist” with extensive training as a marksman and the know-how to navigate through the wooded areas where investigators believe he’s been hiding since September.
