Yeah, I heard about it 2 or 3 days ago. Supposedly the guy snapped and shot his daughter in law and now he is supposedly hiding out in Harriman...which was sort of his backyard... I do not know for sure the details either..that's just what I was told by 2 different people..

We're planning on getting there in a couple weeks, my mother is already telling me I'm crazy.  I'll weigh my options when the time gets closer.  The guys going to either be dead from lack of heart meds or self inflicted.  It is a scary thing though, out there, hiding with weapons and no real care of who he hurts.

Far as I can tell, he is still at large.  not much news on this.  I bet he is dead by now.  Who knows?  Seems to me you should be able to contact park officials and find out.

I doubt he's dead.  I also doubt he's still in the Park (if he ever was).  It's starting to get a bit chilly around there (going down into the 20's tomorrow night).  Wouldn't be much fun without shelter etc.

so thinking of doing an overnight in harriman next weekend. assuming it's safe by now.
i did a quick google search and it looks like yesterday cadaver dogs were searching an area where a hiker reported smelling a foul odor. doesn't look like they found his body though.

Have we ruled out that Semen Foot is possibly the assailant? The cold didnt bother him, he was hiking Harrimen last February with no shirt on.

I heard a radio report this morning on the way to work that this guy is still at large.  The report said they are trying to get an indictment of him, so he can be arrested in any state.  I assume (and I think LE assume) he is no longer In the Building.

I haven't heard any news, but I think after this amount of time and the weather, he's either dead or long gone.  I thought there were people here who have backpacked since he was occupying the area?
