Prison Break! $20K Reward Offered For Info On Escaped Murderer Featured

Written by

They caught the burglar, but the murderer is still on the run.

That's the word from US Marshals who have been hunting for two inmates who escaped from prison earlier this week in Lima, Ohio.

The Marshals, along with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, are offering a reward of up to $20 thousand dollars for information leading to the capture of 50 year old Bradley Gillespie, who they say is "dangerous", and still at large.

Gillespie, who was convicted of murder, and 47-year-old James Lee who was behind bars for burglary, breaking and entering, and safe cracking, were last seen inside the Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution on Monday. 

Lee was found and arrested early this morning near the Indiana-Kentucky border, but authorities are still are asking for tips to help them find Gillespie.

They do, however, urge caution, and warn not to approach or engage the escaped convict.

Anyone with information concerning a wanted fugitive can contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED (1-866-492-6833), or you can submit a web tip. Tipsters may remain anonymous.  Follow the U.S. Marshals on Twitter @USMSCleveland.
