Mollie Halpern: Alleged cop killer Eric Matthew Frein is the newest addition to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. Frein is wanted for shooting a Pennsylvania state trooper to death and injuring another earlier this month.
Joseph Campbell: Our joint investigation shows that Eric Matthew Frein deliberately attacked the Pennsylvania State Police.
Halpern: That was Joseph Campbell, the assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division, who says the Bureau is working closely on this case with the Pennsylvania State Police and its other law enforcement partners.
Campbell: The FBI is absolutely committed to utilizing whatever resources are necessary to locate and arrest Frein, and that is why we’re adding him to the list—in order to generate publicity regarding his egregious crimes.
Halpern: An up to $100,000 reward is being offered for information directly leading to Frein’s arrest.
Campbell: We believe that Frein is armed and that he is dangerous. He has a history of using and carrying weapons. He is also an experienced outdoorsman.
Halpern: If you have any information about Frein, call your local FBI office. Frein is the 503rd fugitive on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. With Wanted by the FBI, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
