Patrick Bradley McCoy has been wanted by the Santa Monica, Police Department since 1988. I believe he was aired on AMW in the 1990's since he has been aired as a fugitive case on AMW's short-lived syndicated spin-off "Final Justice" Below is the archive description of his case:
Time to Fight Back
On July 26, 1988, 17-year old Donelle McCoy went to the Santa Monica Police station to report a crime -- she said her stepfather, Patrick McCoy, had molested her for several years -- and she was now afraid McCoy might be molesting her 12-year old sister.
Donelle told detectives the molestation first began when she was in the 5th grade, at age 10. Donnelle says McCoy told her he was teaching her the "facts of life." For four years, on an average of five times a week, Donelle said McCoy would molest her. Donelle said when she turned fourteen, McCoy stopped.
Donelle says she kept the molestation secret because her stepfather intimidated and threatened her.
But three years later, when Donelle noticed McCoy taking special interest in Donelle's 12-year old sister, she knew that despite her fears, it was time for her to fight back.
On the afternoon of July 26, 1988, Santa Monica police Detective Jim Archer had Donelle call her stepfather while police taped the phone call. Here is an excerpt of the call:
Donelle: I just want to know why, is it something that I did?
McCoy: No, nothing you did. You didn't get in trouble over that.
Donelle: But why, why me?
McCoy: I don't know it's, it's just something that happened.
On August 18, 1988, Patrick McCoy was arrested for the molestation of his stepdaughter Donelle. Thankfully, police found no evidence that McCoy had been molesting his biological daughter, Donelle's little sister.
Donelle testified at a preliminary hearing and McCoy was charged with five counts of Lewd and Lascivious Acts on a Child under 14. But Patrick McCoy failed to show for his October 1988 arraignment and hasn't been seen since.
Thoughts? Based on the fact I couldn't find anything online suggesting otherwise, I am working under the assumption McCoy is still at large as of this update (5/24/2015).
Not only is it concerning Patrick is unaccounted for after these past 27 years, but he is currently in his mid-late 60's, which is still relatively young, and he could still be a threat to children. I'd like to see some resolution since we haven't seen a "Final Justice" capture in a while.
