Eric Frein lookalike: I’ve been stopped repeatedly

(AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania resident said he’s been stopped and questioned more than 20 times by authorities who have mistaken him for a man sought in the killing of a state trooper, including one encounter at gunpoint that left him fearing for his life.

Trooper Tom Kelly, a state police spokesman, said Thursday the agency will investigate any formal complaint about alleged mistreatment.

Police have been searching for Frein in the woods around Canadensis since an ambush outside their barracks Sept. 12 left one state trooper dead and another seriously wounded.

Not many people travel by foot in the rural region, which is filled with winding two-lane roads.
