BOSTON – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a reward of $ 20,000 for information on the fate of a murder suspect with ties to several states, including Indiana.
Andrew P. Dabbs – also known as Peter Dabbs – is wanted for the alleged murder of his girlfriend on October 10, 1981.
Dabbs is a black man with brown eyes and is now believed to be 78 years old. At the time of the murder, he weighed about 180 pounds and was about 5’10 ” tall. He had a mole on the right side of his nose, a scar on his arm, and skin grafts on his leg from a burn.
Dabbs’ last known address was in Derry, New Hampshire, but he also has ties to Massachusetts, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The FBI has said Dabbs should be viewed as armed and dangerous.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the murder of Robin A. Shea, who, according to federal authorities, was shot in the chest with a .45 caliber revolver by Dabbs and pushed out of the vehicle where she was later found by a passing motorist.
“The reality is, it’s really unfinished, it’s unfinished in the sense that I speak of it and it’s out there somewhere,” said Joyce Carter, Robin Shea’s sister. “Maybe he’s dead, and if he’s dead, I’d like to know, I’d like to know more about that detail, and if he’s not dead, if he’s alive, he has to pay for what he did. “
Dabbs was charged with the 1981 murder of Shea in Massachusetts and an arrest warrant was issued for his arrest. Dabbs fled to avoid prosecution, however.
“Anyone knows where Andrew Dabbs is and we ask that you contact us. We are in the final stages of this investigation and we are doing all we can to bring it to justice and provide a much needed closure to Robin’s family who have already endured enough grief, ”said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in charge of the Boston division of the FBI.
The FBI asks anyone with information about Dabbs to call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324). Tips can also be submitted electronically at tips.fbi.gov.
