Leonard Rayne Moses was sentenced to life in prison when he was allowed to attend his grandmother’s funeral in Pennsylvania.

Moses escaped from authorities and has been missing ever since.

That was June 1, 1971.

On the 45th anniversary of his escape, the FBI began posting information about Moses on electronic billboards in several states, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  The FBI all is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to his arrest.

At the time of his escape, authorities thought he may have fled to Detroit.

No other Pennsylvania inmate has been on the run as long as Moses.

Moses was convicted of murder after tossing a Molotov cocktail at a house in Homewood, Pa., on April 6, 1968 as people rioted in the wake of the Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.
