It’s still anyone’s guess why someone would ambush two Pennsylvania state troopers and then shoot them with a high-caliber rifle on Sept. 12.
One special agent with the FBI offered some insight into the suspect – 31-year-old Eric Matthew Frein.
Frein lived with his parents and likely was unsatisfied with life, said Ed Hanko, special agent in charge of the Philadelphia Division of the FBI. He played in military re-enactments and may have wanted to fulfill one of those roles.
“We want to arrest this person,” Hanko said, adding later, “We have the who, the what, the where. We want the why.”
After the attack, Frein took cover in the woods and has been missing since.
