Kevin Travis WADDELL, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, was captured on the morning of June 8, 2017, at a business located near Del Valle, Texas. Members of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including DPS Special Agents, took WADDELL into custody without incident. He had been wanted since September 2015.

In 1992, WADDELL was convicted in Potter County (Amarillo) of Sexual Assault for an incident involving a 19-year-old female. He subsequently received a 20-year sentence in TDCJ prison.

WADDELL was released on parole in the mid-1990s and then resided in the Austin area for nearly two decades before becoming a fugitive in September 2015.

On September 22, 2015, a parole warrant for WADDELL's arrest was issued by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles. Additional warrants were also issued by the Travis County Sheriff's Office for Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements and Possession of a Controlled Substance (Cocaine).

The arrest was the result of tip information received through Texas Crime Stoppers and a reward will be paid.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of the following methods:
• Call the Texas Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477) • Text the letters "DPS"- followed by your tip – to 274637 (CRIMES) • Submit a web tip through the Texas 10 Most Wanted website or Facebook page • Submit a tip through the DPS Mobile App
All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.
Callers’ anonymity is guaranteed by law and you could earn up to the CASH REWARD amount listed for each fugitive.
These fugitives should be considered Armed and Dangerous! Never try to apprehend a fugitive yourself.
