Man suspected of raping girl found dead in Iowa
PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) — A man accused of raping a 9-year-old girl at gunpoint in Florida has been found dead in north central Iowa.
Kevin Carroll Bordwell’s body was found in Hamilton County on Wednesday night with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Charlotte County sheriff’s office said Thursday.
Bordwell, 43, parked his car at his mother’s home in Stratford, Iowa, then walked about two miles to the intersection where his body was found, Hamilton County Chief Deputy Scott McConnell told KCCI-TV.
U.S. Marshals were alerted to his possible presence in the area Wednesday when he used an ATM in Webster City, KCCI reported.
Bordwell allegedly entered an Englewood home on Tuesday and raped the child, detectives said. He was wanted on charges of capital sexual battery, burglary with battery and armed burglary.
Authorities said it was not clear where Bordwell was headed. He graduated from Webster City High School in 1984.
A nationwide alert had been issued for Bordwell and his Mercury Marquis.
