This kind of makes me wish I looked like a most-wanted fugitive.
News of the factory worker’s run-ins with authorities searching for fugitive Eric Frein, wanted in the Sept. 12 shooting death of one state trooper and wounding of another, has sparked a crowdfunding campaign to buy him a car.
Donations are pouring in and by Friday the campaign had raised nearly $16,000, more than six times the original goal of $2,500.
“I’m overwhelmed with the support from the community and the area,” Tully said in a telephone interview on Friday.
Tully, 39, who says friends tell him he looks like Frein from a distance, said he had been stopped by police at least 20 times on his 4-hour long walks to and from his job at a thermal products factory.
