State Senator Lisa Baker, R-20, issued the following statement regarding the arrest of accused state trooper killer Eric Matthew Frein:
“For the residents, merchants, and local officials in the area, the capture puts an end to the fear, anxiety, and disruption that come from a suspected killer on the loose. We are grateful for the concerted effort made by so many dedicated law enforcement officials in this extended search under difficult circumstances. Now there is hope across the community that justice will be served for this horrendous crime. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Corporal Dickson, Trooper Douglass, and their families, that they will soon find healing, comfort, and peace.”
Baker’s northeastern Pennsylvania Senate district includes all of Pike County and she’s a member of the Senate’s Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee.
