Officials: Paroled killer moves from Jennings County

A Bloomington man recently released from prison after murdering and dismembering a woman in 1986 has moved out of Jennings County.

Where he was moving to was not immediately known.

Lt. Andy Wayman said the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department had not heard from Robert E. Lee or state parole officials as of 4 p.m. Monday.

“Hopefully he won’t light here,” Wayman said.

Maj. Jerry Shepherd of the sheriff’s department said Monday that public pressure likely caused Lee, 57, to be moved from a home in Butlerville, which he had moved into last week with another ex-convict.

“I think there were a lot of calls about him being there,” Shepherd said. “The sheriff’s department had several meetings and constant phone calls with the state, and we were assured Friday he’d be moved.”
