Donald Leroy Evans (born July 5, 1957) is an Americanmarker serial killer who murdered more than 15 people from 1970 to 1991. He was known for sexually assaulting and killing victims at parks and rest areas across 20 states.

Arrest and conviction

In 1991, Evans was arrested in Louisianamarker for the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl. He confessed to the killing and led the authorities to the girl's body. He also confessed to killing more than 60 other people in over 20 different states. Most of the murders and rapes took place at rest stops and public parks. The authorities were originally skeptical of Evans' claims, but many of his descriptions were perfect matches to unsolved cases across Floridamarker and Illinoismarker. He successfully escaped the Harrison County Jail, but was recaptured a short time later. He was tried and convicted for the kidnapping, rape, strangulation, and murder of 10-year-old Beatrice Routh in 1993, and sentenced to death. In 1995, Florida authorities tried and convicted Evans for the strangulation death of Ira Jean Smith.

Evans was stabbed to death in 1999 by a fellow death row inmate at the Mississippi State Penitentiary.
