Police hauled a mountain of survival supplies — along with a Bible, a religious plaque and sheets of typewritten prayers — from the abandoned airport where Pennsylvania cop-killing suspect Eric Frein was captured after weeks on the run, new court documents show. An inventory of the seized items runs three pages and includes weaponry, camping equipment, first-aid gear, clothing, computers, candles and a solar computer, but very little food. Other items include a "14-page handwritten note in manila envelope" and "3 typed pages with random prayers."

Investigators have not released a motive for the Sept. 12 ambush on the Blooming Grove state police barracks, which left one trooper dead and another wounded. Frein, 31, was identified as the suspect within days but he managed to elude a massive manhunt for nearly seven weeks until U.S. marshals happened on him at the Birchwood-Pocono Airport.
