BARRETT TOWNSHIP -- While police continue to search for Eric Frein, the man they say shot and killed one state trooper and wounded another, a viewer told Newswatch 16 troopers collected blood samples found on her property Saturday.

Joyce Aleckna of Barrett Township said police were at her property on Beartown Road after some blood was found near her chicken coop and a walking trail around it.

Aleckna said none of her animals were injured and are locked up behind fences.

She said investigators took samples to be tested in a lab to see if the blood is a match for Frein.
