DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - The Latest on the search for a fugitive wanted in the slaying of a Pennsylvania police chief in 1980 (all times local):

10:25 p.m.

Authorities searching for evidence in a decadeslong quest to find a fugitive wanted in the slaying of a Pennsylvania police chief in 1980 say they’ve recovered what they believe to be human remains in Massachusetts.

The FBI said in a statement late Thursday that they’re in the process of determining if the remains belong to fugitive Donald Eugene Webb.

The FBI and state police from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania gathered Thursday at the Dartmouth home of Webb’s wife and began a dig in the yard.

Police say Webb shot Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, police Chief Greg Adams during a traffic stop. Webb was a career criminal living in New Bedford, Massachusetts, at the time.

Webb’s rental car was found at a motel in Warwick, Rhode Island, after the killing.

Authorities have begun a dig in a Massachusetts yard to search for evidence in a decadeslong quest to find a fugitive wanted in the slaying of a Pennsylvania police chief in 1980.

The FBI and state police from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania gathered Thursday at the Dartmouth home of the wife of fugitive Donald Eugene Webb.

Police say Webb shot Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, police Chief Greg Adams during a traffic stop. Webb was a career criminal living in New Bedford, Massachusetts, at the time.

Webb’s rental car was found at a motel in Warwick, Rhode Island, after the killing.

The FBI has offered $100,000 for information leading to Webb’s capture.

In June, the FBI found a hidden room and cane in the Dartmouth home owned by Webb’s wife, Lillian, and her son.
