Pennsylvania State Police lined the streets outside St. Peters' Cathedral in Scranton, Pa., on Thursday, as the casket carrying slain Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Cpl. Bryon Dickson, 38, was carried from the Cathedral after his funeral service.

His suspected killer, Eric Matthew Frein, 31, remains at large, possibly holed up in the woods with high-powered rifles. A military re-enactor with anti-government and anti-police leanings, Frein likely assumed the role of a Serbian soldier for his ambush, authorities said.
