CAUTION

Richard Lynn Bare has been wanted since 1985 when he escaped from the Wilkes County, North Carolina Jail where he was awaiting trial for murder. In 1984, the victim, a 24-year-old female friend, reportedly avoided sexual advances by Bare, and he allegedly threw her over a 1,200-foot cliff, an area known as the "Jumping Off Place", near the border of Wilkes County and Ashe County, in North Carolina.

In April of 1985, a Wilkes County, North Carolina Grand Jury indicted Bare for murder and he was subsequently arrested. Bare escaped and a state warrant was issued for his arrest in July of 1985. Additionally, Bare was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution and a federal arrest warrant was issued in December of 1985, by the United States District Court, Western District of North Carolina.
