Child Rapist Alert: Brent Egan Dotson Sought

Filed in Gather News Channel by on December 16, 2012 0 Comments

Convicted child rapist Brent Egan Dotson is currently on the run and authorities need help bringing him to justice. If you see this man, do not hesitate to call local authorities wherever you may be. He has been convicted, in absentia, of raping a child for two years, starting when she was 7 years old.

The South Carolina man hasn’t been sentenced yet, and won’t be until he is apprehended. His crimes carry a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison and he must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Facebook’s Seeking the Lost community shared a slew of details about the missing child rapist, and some of them may lead to his arrest:

  • Brent always wears a cap due to his advanced baldness, and the caps must always match his outfit.
  • He prefers to wear sleeveless shirts like tanks and muscle tees, but he also has a very distinctive tribal tattoo. He may or may not try to cover this.
  • He wears false teeth.
  • He frequents landfills/dumps where he rummages through things. He is described as a hoarder and is known to collect a multitude of items that he later sells at his own yard sells. He is also known to frequent pawn shops.

These are just some of the details that may lead to finding and arresting the fugitive. He has family in West Virginia so may or may not be heading in that direction. Hopefully that family does the right thing if he does go out there and turns him in to authorities.
