The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Leonard Rayne Moses.
On June 1, 1971, Leonard Rayne Moses escaped the custody of law enforcement officials while attending his grandmother’s funeral in the Homewood section of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At the time, Moses was serving a life sentence in prison after having been convicted of first degree murder. On April 6, 1968, during the "Pittsburgh Riots" that occurred following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Moses and some friends threw Molotov cocktails at a house located in Homewood. As a result of burns received during the attack, and subsequent pneumonia, the female victim inside the house died. On July 12, 1971, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Moses in the United States District Court, Western District of Pennsylvania, after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid confinement.
