The U.S. Marshals recently added notorious murderer Lester Eubanks, who's been on the run for over 45 years, to their 15 Most Wanted list. While on bail awaiting trial for sexual assault in 1965, Eubanks shot and bludgeoned 14-year-old Mary Ellen Deener to death in Mansfield, Ohio. After his apprehension, Eubanks confessed to the crime, was convicted and received the death sentence. While confined in the Ohio state prison system, his sentence was commuted to life in prison. Then, in a series of shocking events, Eubanks received permission to embark on an unaccompanied "good behavior" shopping trip just before Christmas in 1973. While on the trip, Eubanks slipped away and was never seen again. Now, ABC News pulls back the curtain on Eubanks' crimes and prison escape, with exclusive interviews with key players who knew both Eubanks and his victim; never-before-heard details of his prison escape and the controversial program that led to that escape; and interviews with people who encountered Eubanks -- using various aliases -- since he's been on the run.
