Convicted Murderer's Whereabouts Unknown To Public

Last updated on Tuesday, October 9, 2012

(UNDATED) - In 1987, a judge convicted Robert Evan Lee of the murder and dismemberment of Ellen Marks, of Bloomington.

After spending 25 years behind bars, Lee was released from prison.

According to prison officials, Lee was headed back to Bloomington where he was to be on parole for one year. But that didn't work out, and he was moved to Butlerville in Jennings County.

Once there, residents complained and Lee was moved.

During that time, Lee also received death threats. So DOC moved Lee again but this time they did not release his whereabouts.

The state requires released inmates to be returned to the parole district from where they were sentenced. However, the DOC moved Lee to a county outside of his parole area.

At first officials believed the 57-year-old Lee would have to register on the sex registry. But now they say he was convicted before the violent offender sex registry list was established. Because of that he does not have to be included on the list

DOC assures Lee is being monitored and that he is currently wearing a GPS device.
