A 37-year search for a fugitive with mob ties wanted in connection with the killing of a Pennsylvania police chief came to a shocking end Friday when authorities announced Donald Eugene Webb’s remains buried in his former wife’s backyard in Dartmouth, Mass.

The remains were found Thursday night in the back of a property owned by 82-year-old Lillian Webb, whose former husband, it turns out, died in 1999 while still on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, the Boston Globe reports

The discovery of Donald Webb, a career career with connections to the New England mob, ended the longest cold case involving a slain officer in U.S. history. Webb was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list from 1981 to 2007.

Webb had been charged in the brutal beating and fatal shooting of Saxonburg Police Chief Gregory Adams during a traffic stop in December 1980.

“For almost 37 years, the family of Chief Adams and the citizens of Saxonburg have been awaiting news of Donald Eugene Webb’s whereabouts. The FBI is grateful to have been able to play a role in helping to resolve this case. Although it’s unfortunate Mr. Webb will never be brought to justice to pay for his crimes, we’re hopeful the family can find some closure in knowing that this alleged murderer has been located,” said Harold H. Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston division, CNN reports
