Human remains found in cold case involving Pa

Saxonburg and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are awaiting for a rushed autopsy report to come back, because this may solve the murder as to what happened to Webb.

Webb was one of the longest tenured fugitives ever to appear on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list.

An attorney for the chief's family explained what was found inside Lillian Webb's home.

She ignored reporters' questions when she returned to her MA home Friday night.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that the remains found Thursday belong to Webb.

The remains of a long-time fugitive who once topped the FBI's Most Wanted list have been recovered in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. A report by the Associated Press says Webb's wife, Lillian, led investigators to her husband's remains in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

The FBI renewed their efforts to find Webb just last month by releasing never-before-seen photos and offering a $100,000 reward for anyone with information about his whereabouts.

Authorities spent all day Thursday at the North Darmouth home of the wife of fugitive Donald Eugene Webb.

King said that while Adams' widow and her sons are sad to have to relive painful memories, they are relieved the mystery has come to a close. "That's something I had to do 37 years ago with two babies and that's something I'm going to do now", Jones said. In addition, Jones told the AP, agents found a "secret room" in the home with a cane.

The remains of a fugitive wanted in the 1980 slaying of a Pennsylvania police chief were recovered from the back of the MA home of his former wife, USA authorities said on Friday.

Webb vanished immediately. His remains were dug up Thursday night in the backyard of his ex-wife, Lillian. State police in MA and Pennsylvania also were on hand for the dig. The FBI is grateful to have been able to play a role in helping to resolve this case.

"The biggest question in the history of Saxonburg has been answered", said Saxonburg Police Chief Joseph Beachem in a statement. "Our thoughts are with the family and we hope this eases their minds, if even only slightly".
