A Dartmouth home has become a crime scene after police uncovered human remains late Thursday following a search for evidence of a missing mob associated wanted by the FBI for allegedly murdering a Pennsylvania police chief. 

The cold case dates back to 1980.

The FBI, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania State Police searched the property at 28 Maplecrest Drive Thursday as part of a decades-long effort to locate fugitive Donald Eugene Webb.

Webb is accused of fatally shooting Saxonburg, PA police Chief Greg Adams during a Dec. 4, 1980, traffic stop and the chief may have wounded Webb in the leg.

“An autopsy will be conducted and identification of the remains will be part of that process, which will occur shortly,” Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn said at the scene Thursday night.

The search arose after state police obtained a warrant “as part of an ongoing illegal gambling investigation”.

Webb’s wife led authorities to the remains.   Thomas King III, an attorney for the widow of slain Saxonburg Police Chief Gregory Adams, says he was told by prosecutors that Lillian Webb agreed to lead authorities to her husband in exchange for immunity.

Adams widow sued Lillian and her son Stanley Webb after the FBI has told her about finding the hidden room and a cane near a closet in Lillian Webb’s home.  The fugitive would be in his 80s if he’s still alive.

One of Stanley Webb’s businesses was raided in June.  Law enforcement confiscated illegal gambling machines from Webb’s establishment during their raid.
