Local Fugitive to Air on America's Most Wanted

Lafayette, LA – Earlier this year the U.S. Marshals requested the assistance of America’s Most Wanted (AMW) in exposing an elusive suspect/fugitive named Kenneth Crouch. Crouch is Wanted by the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana Probation and Parole, and the U.S. Marshals for a myriad of crimes. AMW put Crouch on their website earlier this year and in November AMW came to Lafayette and filmed a lengthy segment about Crouch and his crimes. AMW will air a segment about Crouch tomorrow on their Fox Special that begins at 7:00 p.m. Central Time.

Crouch allegedly battered his girlfriend in Sunset, LA on November 9, 2010. Crouch then allegedly stole a gun and vehicle and fled to Seguin, TX. In Seguin Crouch allegedly stole another vehicle and another firearm and fled South. Crouch may be in the Laredo, TX area or the United Mexican States. When Crouch allegedly committed these crimes he was on Parole in Louisiana based on a 1994 Conviction for Forcible Rape and Aggravated Burglary.

Law Enforcement is hopeful that exposing Crouch nationally will generate leads as to his location.

If you have information as to Crouch’s whereabouts please contact America’s Most Wanted at 1-800-Crime-TV or the US Marshals Violent Offender Task Force in Lafayette at (337) 262-6792 or (337) 251-6921.

Additional information on the Crouch case can be found at the America’s Most Wanted website.
