Gangster, gang leader, armed robber, depression-era antihero and Indianapolis native John Dillinger became a federal fugitive when he drove a stolen Lake County sheriff’s car across the Indiana-Illinois state line, violating the National Motor Vehicle Theft Act.
The FBI is searching for a fugitive who has evaded justice for decades, and they’re asking the public for help. Although the murder case Andrew P. Dabbs is wanted for occurred in Massachusettes, he has ties to Indiana, and authorities believe someone in the state could possess information about the suspect. A $20,000 reward is available for any tips leading to his current whereabouts.
Dabbs allegedly shot his girlfriend Robin Shea with a .45 revolver then pushed her body out of his car while driving through Norton, Massachusettes in 1981. A passerby found the woman’s body, and Dabbs was indicted a month later. Apparently, he’s been able to avoid arrest ever since. His last known address was in New Hampshire, but he also has connections to Massachusetts, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, New York, and Pennsylvania. If still alive, Dabbs would now be 78 years old. He has brown eyes, a mole on the right side of his nose, a scar on his arm, and skin grafts on his leg. At the time of the murder, he weighed approximately 180 pounds and stood about 5’10.
