Join the real-time nationwide manhunt for escaped Ohio death row inmate Lester Eubanks. While out on bail for attempted rape in 1965, Eubanks murdered a 14-year-old school girl, was convicted and sent to prison. Through a series of shocking events, Eubanks was designated an honor prisoner and granted permission to join a small group trip outside penitentiary walls to go Christmas shopping. He walked away and hasn’t been seen since. Now, join ABC News as it peels back the curtain on Eubanks’ escape and life on the run, and follow the U.S. Marshals service as one of their star investigators uses every tool available to catch up to Eubanks.
Hosted by ABC News’ Sunny Hostin.
