$50,000 Reward For Convicted Murder Who Escaped in 1973

CLEVELAND (WJW)– There is now a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of wanted fugitive Lester Eubanks.

Eubanks, who was out on bond for suspected rape, dragged Mary Ellen Deener behind a vacant house in Mansfield on Nov. 14, 1965. He tried to rape the 14-year-old, shot her twice and smashed her head with a brick.
