I probably think Webb's attempt to navigate a river on a gimpy leg probably had him gotten swept away in the currents...there wasn't any hospitals in the vicinity reporting treating any patients with a bullet-wounded leg at the time...I don't know if a gun shot wounded patient qualified as something a doctor would not report to the authorities...especially if there might be an APB out for a wounded suspect in a murder of a town police chief.
I never thought about that but it makes a lot of sense Catchumall. I do have to wonder why he would drive all the way from Pennsylvania to Rhode Island, just to cross a river. There wouldn't be any other explanation for the blood trail to lead to that river.
Maybe the pain from the bullet wound in Webb's leg caused him so much agony that he couldn't continue the drive to his planned destination to meet a contact or that his leg went numb or paralyzed from the loss of blood and the tissue damage that he couldn't accelerate or brake his car any more.
Desperate measures for a desperate killer.

One part that intrigues me is the letter written in 1990 in it contained indications of a potential surrender. He and Robert Fisher have been subjected to these false hope letters and prank calls.
The writing tests were proven inconclusive. I personally think Donald Webb is deceased because he probably gave the mafia some unwanted attention and they likely had someone "wack" him in order to not have so much heat on them.
Also the pool of blood could be the next deciding factor of why think he's deceased and why I've considered that possibility over the years because he likely succumbed to those wounds someone after the sighting in July 1981 if he wasn't treated or if it was worse than we think.
Unfortunately, short of a body, we'll probably never find out what happened to Webb.
Very true. I wonder if he is still alive , but if he is , then he must have had an accomplice which waited for him when he escaped. And because of a huge blood loss, he certainly has to be amputed of the heavily wounded leg(which is a possibility).
