(UNDATED) - Robert E. Lee, formerly of Bloomington, who was released from prison after murdering and dismembering a woman in 1986, has moved out of Jennings County.

Indiana parole officers moved Lee Monday from a house where had been living in Jennings County, about 50 miles east of Bloomington. Jennings County Sheriff's Department Major Jerry Shepherd says the parole officers and Lee were headed westbound, but he says he didn't know where they were going.

Lee must register as a sex offender within 72 hours of being relocated. As of this morning, his name and address did not appear on the Indiana Sex Offender Registry.

Lee had moved into a rundown house with another ex-convict after two locations in the Bloomington area refused to accept him.

The 57-year-old Lee was released from prison Sept. 22 after serving 25 years for the 1986 slaying of 31-year-old Ellen Marks, of Bloomington. Her head and hands were never found.

Department of Correction Spokeswoman Amy Lanum said public outcry forced both moves.
