Another convict, James Lee, 47, who was being held on burglary and safecracking charges, went AWOL from Allen/Oakwood. Both males were deemed “dangerous” by authorities and should not be touched. A reward of $21,000 was offered for information leading to their capture.
Investigators said early Wednesday that Lee had been captured in Henderson, Kentucky. Gillespie, who is still at large, is being sought by local authorities. Residents were encouraged to lock their doors and call 911 if they noticed any strange activity, according to WFIE. Gillespie, originally from Defiance, was found guilty in September 2016 of the murders of Hannah Fischer, 21, and her lover Frank Tracy Jr., 47, according to the Bryan Times. At the conclusion of his brief trial, victims’ loved ones told the media that “justice was served for Hannah and Frank.”
