(NEWSER) – Police combing a heavily wooded area of Pennsylvania for the survivalist suspected of shooting two state troopers are starting to suspect he is playing some kind of twisted game with them. Almost 1,000 officers are combing the area for Eric Frein, and there have been repeated sightings of a hooded figure dressed in black that police believe is the suspect.
"There have been pursuits. The type of terrain and cover, he has had the ability to disappear," a police spokesman tells ABC. "Some of the sightings have occurred in circumstances where he kept himself far enough away where he knew that it was unlikely someone could get to him."
