From AMW.COM's archived profile description:
"Illinois law enforcement agencies are seeking Herman Arthur Carroll, Sr.
Carroll, a twice-convicted child sexual offender, is wanted for sexually abusing his daughter in 2000. Carroll was arrested on July 3, 2000. He posted bond shortly after his arrest, but failed to appear for his trial.
Carroll told people that he believes he will spend the rest of his life in jail if convicted. He's probably right; he could be sent behind bars for up to 90 years for his third conviction."
I'm working on what I remember from the airings off my memory so please correct me if I get anything wrong.
Carroll if I recall was profiled briefly sometime in the early 2000's but with little tips. When AMW re-aired him for another 15 seconds (I think) in 2009, the tips poured in. He nearly became an AMW direct capture in Springfield, Missouri, but the woman he was living with tipped him off and he fled. This did not sit well with his daughter, who in a Lifetime interview said he threatened to kill her if he ever saw her again, and Springfield, Missouri was not that far away from Illinois.
On Lifetime, Carroll became one of AMW's major cases as tips started flooding in again, leading to I believe three separate airings on him, where once again, tipsters spotted him in Springfield. If I recall correctly, one tipster believed they spotted Carroll at a Walmart there. Authorities flooded the area, but once again, Carroll seemed to manage to slip through the cracks.
Caroll is believed to possibly be hiding out in a homeless camp.
His 2004 archived profile lists him as 52, so he should be around 62 today. Carroll has several distinguishing features, including a birthmark on his abdomen, a tattoo of a heart on his left shoulder with the word "JOANNE", and an unusual tattoo of a family tree on his right shoulder. He's also been known to wear a mustache in the past, but authorities believe he's clean-shaven now. He is also a skilled trim finisher, specializing in new construction.
Thoughts? It seems Carroll may be living a transient lifestyle, which is probably why it's so hard to catch him. It's frustrating since AMW came close so many times. I actually wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow still in Springfield, Missouri. But he can be living in a homeless camp anywhere in America.
In any case, his daughter doesn't deserve to continue to live in fear, and we need to find out where this alleged monster is.
