Remains of fugitive wanted for decades found at ex-wife’s home

A 36-year-long search for a fugitive who shot and killed a Pennsylvania police chief is over.

On Friday, officials discovered and identified the remains of Donald Eugene Webb, who was featured on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list from 1981 until 2007, at a Massachusetts home.

Officials believe Webb, a career criminal, shot and killed Chief Gregory Adams in December 1980 after he was pulled over for running a stop sign. Webb had connections to the mob in New England working as a jewelry thief. In years since, he went by different names, including Donald Eugene Perkins, Donald Eugene Pierce, John S. Portas, Stanley John Portas, Bev Webb, Eugene Bevlin Webb, Eugene Donald Webb, and Stanley Webb.

Police were led to Webb’s remains Thursday by his ex-wife, Lillian, The Associated Press reported. He was buried in her back yard in Dartmouth.

Officials in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts have agreed to not prosecute Lillian Webb.

Investigators believe that he died about 17 years ago, AP reported.

Adams’ widow, Mary Ann Jones, said she’s not pleased that Lillian kept her ex-husband’s remains and whereabouts hidden for years.

“I guess I’m angry at her at this point because she could do that to my family—hide him for years and then bury him so we never know,” Jones said. “Why hide him? Why not allow us closure?”

As MailOnline reported, Jones said that Webb may have gone into hiding at Lillian’s home in short stints during the 1990s.
