    The U.S. Marshals Service on Tuesday offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Stephen Stanko (search ), an ex-convict suspected of killing two people and raping a teenage girl in a 24-hour crime spree.

    Also, officials have information that Stanko left South Carolina after the crimes were committed, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals told FOX News. Based upon that information, a federal magistrate judge issued a warrant.

    Stanko was known as a highly intelligent, polished ex-con who didn't mind talking about his life in prison or the book he'd written about it.

    And it was his love of books that brought him to the library where he met the two people he is suspected of killing — a 43-year-old librarian who would move in with him and a 74-year-old man who spent many days chatting with the couple, said John Gaumer, director of the Horry County Memorial Library

    A nationwide manhunt continues for Stephen Stanko, a former convict and author suspected in two killings and a rape.

    Police stressed Stanko should be considered dangerous.

    Horry County police said Monday that several guns are thought to be missing from the home of a man police think Stanko killed Saturday morning.

    “We’re concerned about what he is capable of,” said Andy Christenson, spokesman for the Horry County Police Department.

    Stephen Stanko did what he knew best - blended in - while on the run from authorities on a nationwide hunt for the ex-convict suspected in the deaths of two South Carolinians and the sexual assault of a teen.

    No one recognized the 37-year-old fugitive neatly dressed in a suit and tie as he ate lunch at a busy shopping complex near Interstate 20 Tuesday afternoon. But local and federal agents were watching and captured him as he walked out of the restaurant.

    "He seemed calm, like nothing was wrong," said Chris Ainsworth, a supervisor at the Atlanta Bread Co. who served Stanko a chicken sandwich.

    Stanko was unarmed and taken into custody without incident after a tip led investigators to the shopping center, said U.S. Marshal Deputy Tim Stec.
