NEPA can now return to a sense of normalcy now that Eric Frein has been captured and Thankfully, he was captured peacefully , without any more Blood Shed.

Halloween is back on for tonight for children in those areas where the Police have been searching for 6 weeks, the Pocono Mountains can now welcome back the tourist trade which was almost non-existent because of this Man Hunt and people living in those areas can sleep more soundly at night.

Fittingly so, Authorities placed Eric Frein in the handcuffs of slain Cpl. Bryon Dickson and put him in Dickson's squad car for the ride back to the Blooming Grove barracks.

The Families of the 2 State Troopers, one who was shot and killed and one who was wounded and is recovering, can maybe get some sense of Relief.

However , his capture will never  bring back Cpl. Bryon Dickson, the state trooper he is accused of fatally shooting on September 12, to his wife and 2 small children.

They continue to be in the thoughts and prayers of NEPA.......

Surprisingly, Eric Frein had made his way south through the Pocono Mountains  to an area in Tannersville which is a mere 40 minute drive from our house!!!  A bit unsettling because he was heading toward more populated areas including a huge Outlet Shopping Area called The Crossings!!

NEPA Remains PSP Strong!!
 We are very grateful to all the members of Law Enforcement who have worked tirelessly to bring this horrific change of events to an end!!
