(Fox News) Notes found in the woods by alleged cop killer Eric Frein offered a "cold-blooded" and "chilling" account of how he shot and killed a Pennsylvania State trooper last month before escaping into the vast forest in the Pocono mountain region, authorities said.
Law enforcement officials scouring the dense, rugged terrain for Frein found signs the 31-year-old survivalist has hid in rock caves and lit small fires to evade capture, Lt. Col. George Bivens, deputy commissioner of operations, said at a news conference in Blooming Grove Wednesday afternoon. Authorities also said there have been four reported sightings of Frein in the area since Friday – some by local residents.
Frein is charged with opening fire outside the rural Blooming Grove state police barracks on Sept. 12., killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and seriously injuring Trooper Alex Douglass in the attack. Additional charges have also been filed following the discovery of explosives allegedly set by Frein that Bivens labeled "weapons of mass destruction."
