$7,500 reward offered
The Texas Department of Public Safety is looking for a convicted sex offender who goes by the nicknames “Bitty Boy” and “Chief” and is believed to be in the Lawton, Oklahoma, area. A $7,500 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of Gwen Komahcheet, one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives.
Komahcheet is a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, and he has family in the Lawton area. Authorities in Texas and Oklahoma continue to receive tips that he has been spotted on an Indian reservation in Lawton. He is known to carry weapons, and may frequent casinos in the Lawton area. After he was released from prison, he took several jobs working in leather shops.
Komahcheet has been on the run since 2004, shortly after his release from prison. He had served 24 years of a 75-year sentence for aggravated rape with a firearm. The above photograph is from 2004. Komahcheet is reported to look thinner than in the photo, and may possibly look as if he is ill. He has scars on his upper left arm, back, left eye, left ear and right cheek.
Harboring a fugitive can lead to state and/or federal charges, with sentences varying from five to 10 years in prison. Anyone found to have been helping Komahcheet avoid arrest will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
∑ In Texas, Komahcheet is wanted for a parole violation.
∑ His last known address in Texas is Spring.
∑ In Oklahoma, he is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender.
∑ Komahcheet also has a federal warrant issued by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
