The Pennsylvania State Police, as a mass of over four thousand different individuals and as one family breathed a huge sigh of relief last night. U.S. Marshal’s captured a murderer who decided a PSP uniform was a target for his rage. Try to imagine the strength of character it took to walk through woods and swamp searching for a killer with a high powered rifle and a powerful telescopic sight lurking somewhere just out of sight. Perhaps just behind that stand of oak or in that thicket of pine. Chilling.
I worked those hills and valleys for years. Much of the time alongside a PSP Trooper on all sorts of cases. Many of those experiences have made their way into my novels. You can’t make this stuff up though. This was real life and all those cops deserve our respect and our thanks for all they do and all they did to catch this piece of shit.
