CLEVELAND, Ohio – Linda Meloni was 16 years old before she learned the identity of her father, one of the most notorious bank robbers in Cleveland history.

She discovered the secret her mother had kept from her by accident after she opened a letter addressed to “L. Ritenour.” She thought it was for her, but it was for her mother, Lora.

Louis Emery Teller was in federal prison at the time, where he would spend 23 years of a 25-year sentence, including six years in the infamous Alcatraz Prison on an island in San Francisco Bay.

In Alcatraz, Teller befriended Robert Stroud, better known as the “Birdman of Alcatraz,” brothers John and Clarence Anglin, and Frank Morris, who invited him to join them on their escape from the island, Alvin “Creepy” Karpis, the FBI’s most wanted man, and Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. He was one of the last surviving inmates of

FBI releases new photos of former New England man wanted for police officer’s 1980 murder

The FBI has released updated pictures of former New England resident Donald Eugene Webb who is wanted for the murder of a police chief in Pennsylvania in 1980.

Police chief Gregory Adams of Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, was beaten and shot to death on Dec. 4, 1980.

During this time, Webb was known to reside in motels in eastern Pennsylvania, under the alias Stanley Portas. Portas was the deceased husband of Webb’s wife.

When Webb was pulled over by Adams, he had told associates he was not going back to prison, police said.

The white-colored Mercury Cougar getaway vehicle believed to be used by Webb was located Dec. 21, 1980, at a Howard Johnson’s parking lot in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Police believe Webb returned to the Providence/Southeastern Massachusetts area of New England after the murder.
