Halloween Canceled in Northeastern Pennsylvania Mountains Because of Frein Manhunt

October 30, 2014  | 

The ongoing manhunt in northeastern Pennsylvania for the suspect in the deadly state police ambush last month has scrapped plans for trick-or-treating Friday and what would have been the 50th anniversary of a beloved Halloween parade.

But kids in the mountainous region still managed to celebrate by "trunk-or-treating," the Associated Press reports.

The tailgate party held last weekend at a school parking lot in rural Barrett Township came as authorities continue to search the woods for Eric Frein, the suspect charged with killing one state trooper and seriously wounding another.

Organizers of Sunday's event called it a success, noting hundreds of children turned out for activities including face painting and a costume contest, and to see dozens of car trunks decorated for the spooky holiday. Oh, and to get lots of candy.

Bagged & tagged tonight. Frein will now most likely get some special treatment.
Hope the feds & With-Holder don't take over. If that happens they'd (DOJ) probably give the POS cop killer a medal.
