FBI releases new photos of former New England man wanted for police officer's 1980 murder
The FBI has released updated pictures of former New England resident Donald Eugene Webb who is wanted for the murder of a police chief in Pennsylvania in 1980.
Police chief Gregory Adams of Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, was beaten and shot to death on Dec. 4, 1980.
During this time, Webb was known to reside in motels in eastern Pennsylvania, under the alias Stanley Portas. Portas was the deceased husband of Webb’s wife.
When Webb was pulled over by Adams, he had told associates he was not going back to prison, police said.
The white-colored Mercury Cougar getaway vehicle believed to be used by Webb was located Dec. 21, 1980, at a Howard Johnson’s parking lot in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Police believe Webb returned to the Providence/Southeastern Massachusetts area of New England after the murder.
Webb was on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitive" list from 1981-2007.
Webb is a white male, with brown eyes. At the time he fled, he was 5-feet, 9-inches in height, weighed approximately 165 pounds and had graying brown hair. He may have a small scar on his right cheek and his right forearm. Additionally, he may have the following tattoos: “DON” on the web of his right hand and “ANN” on his chest.
The majority of the new photographs released earlier this week were taken on a cruise Webb and his wife took in July 1979, approximately one year before he allegedly murdered Adams.
The FBI would like to remind the public that it is offering a reward of up to $100,000, payable not only to any individual who can provide information about his current whereabouts but to anyone who can provide information about the location of his remains.
