From Fox Indianapolis (fox59.com):
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 25, 2016) -- A man accused of molesting two teenage girls vanished more than 4 years ago.
For several years, the victims have waited for the suspect to be caught.
The search for Kevin Short started in late 2011.
Even though several years have passed, Short has never been brought before a judge to answer for the alleged sex crimes. Prosecutors say the 43-year-old Short molested a then-13-year-old friend of his daughters.
The affidavit spells out in graphic detail how Short had sex with the victim several times, but Short never appeared in court to face his accuser.
“He literally has not had that first hearing. So he’s never been in the system other than the warrant being written in his name,” said Steve DuBois with Central Indiana Crime Stoppers.
Before sex crimes detectives were able to show up to Short’s home to interview him about the alleged molestation, Short’s roommate said the suspect ran out the back door and disappeared.
“He got the word it was coming and he wasn’t waiting around. He grabbed a gun and took off,” said DuBois.
Because Short fled before he could be arrested and booked into jail, police don’t have his fingerprints on file. A picture taken from the BMV is the only tool police have to identify the suspect.
“This guy we don’t have anything except his picture,” said DuBois. “So if he changes his look or changes his name, he might get locked up somewhere and we’d never know it.”
DuBois says over the last four years, the suspects family told investigators they think Short may be dead.
“There are rumors that maybe he’s committed suicide, but we never found a body. I find that kind of hard to believe,” said DuBois.
After Short fled his home and disappeared, a second alleged victim came forward. Police fear the accused pedophile may still be somewhere victimizing kids.
“I just don’t think someone will offend like this and then disappear off the face of the earth and never offend again,” said DuBois.
Over the last few years, the IMPD has asked the FBI to help find Short. Facial recognition programs have been run with no results.
Anyone with information on Short’s whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers.
Thoughts? Normally a guy like this wouldn't be that difficult to locate except in this case his fingerprints aren't on file, so nothing short of the victim(s) identifying him if a public tip and/or some type of investigative work involving social security or something of the sort leads to his arrest could solve the case in my opinion. He has two alleged victims already. This guy, if not dead, is not going to stop until he's caught.
