Fugitive Profile as of December 30th, 2014 (based on homefacts.com website)
Weight: 200 lbs.
Aliases: James Dean Dorman, Jane S Dorman, Vincent A Lee, Vincent Andrew Lee, Vincent Lee Purtha, Craig Wahl, Craig Allen Wahl
Who to call if you've seen him: Based on wanted location, our advice would be to call Michiana Crime Stoppers at 1-800-342-STOP
Vincent Purtha, who was aired on the 25th season and what turned out to be series finale of AMW on Lifetime, has been preying upon teenage girls for at least the last ten years.
In 2004, he was convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage girl who was only 13-years old at the time of the assault. He was eventually released. In 2011, he was accused of raping another girl. (I am assuming they were both females since his Florida offender profile says the first victim was).
In addition to the assault, he is also wanted for parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender (he is a level 3- the most dangerous classification).
The reason I'm adding him today is there is an update in this case in that authorities believe there is a strong possibility Purtha may be in the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area where he was a former resident.
It should also be noted that Prior to fleeing Michigan, he was working as a tattoo and sketch artist, and he had experience in the construction field.
While I've provided the phone number for his original Crime Stoppers designation above, if anyone spots Purtha in Florida instead of that number they should Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org/
Thoughts? This is a very dangerous fugitive that got an APB I believe on that 2-hour finale and I feel had AMW been renewed they may have possibly expanded his case. Let's hope there's something to the belief he may be back in Florida so we can nab him there.
