Pennsylvania Trooper Ambush Suspect Spotted, Still at Large

VIDEO: Pennsylvania Trooper Ambush Suspect Spotted, Still at Large

A woman in northeastern Pennsylvania says she spotted trooper ambush suspect Eric Frein while taking a walk Friday, a “high-credibility” sighting that has authorities refocusing their search.

The woman, who did not want her identity revealed, told ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia that she was walking in Paradise Township, Monroe County, near Pocono Mountain East High School, when she noticed a man about 15 to 20 feet away.

She didn’t realize, at first, that it was possibly Frein.

“He had actually turned towards me and that's where you could tell the mud on his face, you could tell the height he was based on the truck he was standing next to,” she said Sunday.

“You could clearly tell it was a gun, a rifle with a scope attached to it. It looked as though he was looking for something or looking which way to go. He avoided making eye contact, I had the light shining on his upper half and his face was kind of confusing. This guy was not startled by me.”

The woman called police, and after authorities interviewed her, they shifted the search area for Frein.
