Court Records: Sex Crime Suspect Faked His Own Death

Posted: Updated:

The State Attorney's Office for the 14th Judicial Circuit is filing a motion to revoke the bond of a suspect they say faked his own death.

Nathan Wilkins, 19 of Georgia, was reported missing by his family on April 22, 2013. His clothes and a suicide note were found on the bank of Little River in Brooks County, Georgia.

Three days later, investigators acting on tips were able to locate Wilkins in the Denver, Colorado area.

Wilkins was originally arrested on June 15, 2012 as part of the Bay County Sheriff's Office "Operation Rip Tide." He was released on bond on June 18, 2012.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Wilkins thought he was making arrangements with the father of an 11-year-old girl and traveled from Georgia to the undercover sting.

The recent court filing also says they found evidence that Wilkins has been on the Internet which is also a violation of his bond terms.
