The Texas Department of Public Safety has added Billy Wayne Gilliland, 58, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list and a cash reward up to $7,500 is now being offered for information leading to his capture.
Gilliland, a confirmed member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas gang, is wanted for parole violation and evading arrest/detention with a vehicle. DPS guarantees all tips to be anonymous.
Gilliland received a life sentence for murder in Liberty County in the 1980s, and was released on parole in March 2014. In October 2016, Gilliland absconded from the halfway house where he was placed in Del Valle. I guess the halfway house was cramping his style after being released from a GD life sentence for murder.
Gilliland has ties to Liberty County and also to the cities of Baytown, Conroe and Midway. His criminal history also includes convictions for escape, burglary and drug charges.
For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at: www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=358.
Gilliland is 6 feet tall, weighs approximately 180 lbs. and has numerous tattoos on his back, chest, arms and left shoulder. He also may wear glasses.
