The case of the Saxonburg police chief slain nearly 40 years ago may finally be solved this week.

The FBI is awaiting autopsy results of remains found on the property of Lilian Webb in Dartmouth, Mass., to determine if the person buried there was her husband, Donald Eugene Webb.

Donald Webb is accused of killing Saxonburg Police Chief Greg Adams during a traffic stop on Butler Street on Dec. 4, 1980.

Adams was 31 when he was killed; Webb, who was 52 at the time, was never caught.

Saxonburg Mayor Bill Gillespie, who was in Dartmouth, said the remains may be identified as early as today.
