Fugitive Accused of Child Rape Captured in Kentucky
Several weeks after his child sex abuse case was featured on America's Most Wanted, Roshard Whitehead of West Palm Beach was found in Lexington, Kentucky. And not a moment too soon, according to a report by WPBF, which says federal marshals found him living with four children.
In mid-January police wondered whether Whitehead had committed suicide, following his learning that he was a suspect in a child sex case. Instead, he headed north, where he had friends.
Whitehead is accused of abusing two girls between 2004 and 2008, first by exposing them to pornographic films, then demanding that they act out the scenes, or else face starvation.
