Former Army specialist Kevin Patrick Stoeser was placed on the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted fugitives list in May of this year after fleeing a halfway house in Del Valle, Texas over a year ago. His death was recently confirmed when a human skull, found by a loose dog this summer, was identified as belonging to the fugitive. Area fields were searched upon the discovery of the human skull, but no additional human remains have been found. Big thanks to Austinite Bruce Levenson for sending in this story.
Stoeser was imprisoned in 2002 after being convicted of multiple sex offenses including those involving minors. Upon his 2011 release from prison, he violated the terms of his release and was taken back into custody. At the time of his escape, the dishonorably discharged serviceman was nearing the end of his sentence. Authorities located an unauthorized smartphone Stoeser was in possession of while under federal supervision. Several suggestive images of young girls were saved on the phone, and Stoeser was believed to be a danger to the public.
