Indiana Department of Corrections officials say they have moved the convicted killer Robert Evan Lee for the second time.
Lee was convicted for the murder of a Bloomington woman 26 years ago and was originally scheduled for release in Monroe County in late September.
After bringing him to Bloomington, officials decided to transfer him Jennings County because of the negative public attention his case received. But after only nine days, Lee is being transferred again.
DOC spokesperson Amy Lanum says he is being moved to an undisclosed location but will be under the same supervision.
“He still is under parole supervision,” she says. “He’s still on GPS monitoring, and he still will be registering on the Indiana violent and sex offender registry.
Lanum says people who are released from prison can be moved as many times as necessary to ensure their safety.
